Apis cerana cerana, a subspecies of eastern honey, Apis cerana, plays a specific role in beekeeping industry and ecosystem in China and other Asian countries. Larvae of A. c. cerana can be infected by Ascosphaera apis, the fungal pathogen of chalkbrood. In this article, normal 4-, 5-, and 6-day-old larval guts (AcCK1, AcCK2, AcCK3) and A. apis-infected 4-, 5- and 6-day-old larval guts (AcT1, AcT2, AcT3) of A. c. cerana workers were respectively harvested followed by DNA isolation, bisulfite conversion, cDNA library construction and Illumina sequencing. Based on genome-wide bisulfite sequencing, 79167210, 82175052, 79331489, 81051009, 74742842 and 74849091 raw reads were generated from AcCK1, AcCK2, AcCK3, AcT1, AcT2 and AcT3, and after quality control, 73417030 (92.73%), 76660370 (93.27%), 71804727 (90.44%), 75046507 (92.82%), 67487782 (90.30%) and 67367023 (90.04%) clean reads were obtained, respectively. Additionally, 73333333, 76533333, 71466667, 75066667, 67590965 and 67200000 clean reads were mapped to the reference genome of A. cerana, including 54656767, 58583415, 54127407, 57943220, 52547867 and 51295824 unique mapped clean reads, and 8624392, 8789458, 7531333, 7747337, 6249679 and 5394174 multiple mapped clean reads. The genome-wide bisulfite sequencing data reported here can be used for genome-wide identification of 5mC methylation sites in eastern honeybee larval guts and systematic investigation of DNA methylation-mediated host response to A. apis infection.
