Novel regulation of the homeotic gene Scr associated with a crustacean leg-to-maxilliped appendage transformation. (1/46886)

Homeotic genes are known to be involved in patterning morphological structures along the antero-posterior axis of insects and vertebrates. Because of their important roles in development, changes in the function and expression patterns of homeotic genes may have played a major role in the evolution of different body plans. For example, it has been proposed that during the evolution of several crustacean lineages, changes in the expression patterns of the homeotic genes Ultrabithorax and abdominal-A have played a role in transformation of the anterior thoracic appendages into mouthparts termed maxillipeds. This homeotic-like transformation is recapitulated at the late stages of the direct embryonic development of the crustacean Porcellio scaber (Oniscidea, Isopoda). Interestingly, this morphological change is associated with apparent novelties both in the transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of the Porcellio scaber ortholog of the Drosophila homeotic gene, Sex combs reduced (Scr). Specifically, we find that Scr mRNA is present in the second maxillary segment and the first pair of thoracic legs (T1) in early embryos, whereas protein accumulates only in the second maxillae. In later stages, however, high levels of SCR appear in the T1 legs, which correlates temporally with the transformation of these appendages into maxillipeds. Our observations provide further insight into the process of the homeotic leg-to-maxilliped transformation in the evolution of crustaceans and suggest a novel regulatory mechanism for this process in this group of arthropods.  (+info)

Mrj encodes a DnaJ-related co-chaperone that is essential for murine placental development. (2/46886)

We have identified a novel gene in a gene trap screen that encodes a protein related to the DnaJ co-chaperone in E. coli. The gene, named Mrj (mammalian relative of DnaJ) was expressed throughout development in both the embryo and placenta. Within the placenta, expression was particularly high in trophoblast giant cells but moderate levels were also observed in trophoblast cells of the chorion at embryonic day 8.5, and later in the labyrinth which arises from the attachment of the chorion to the allantois (a process called chorioallantoic fusion). Insertion of the ROSAbetageo gene trap vector into the Mrj gene created a null allele. Homozygous Mrj mutants died at mid-gestation due to a failure of chorioallantoic fusion at embryonic day 8.5, which precluded formation of the mature placenta. At embryonic day 8.5, the chorion in mutants was morphologically normal and expressed the cell adhesion molecule beta4 integrin that is known to be required for chorioallantoic fusion. However, expression of the chorionic trophoblast-specific transcription factor genes Err2 and Gcm1 was significantly reduced. The mutants showed no abnormal phenotypes in other trophoblast cell types or in the embryo proper. This study indicates a previously unsuspected role for chaperone proteins in placental development and represents the first genetic analysis of DnaJ-related protein function in higher eukaryotes. Based on a survey of EST databases representing different mouse tissues and embryonic stages, there are 40 or more DnaJ-related genes in mammals. In addition to Mrj, at least two of these genes are also expressed in the developing mouse placenta. The specificity of the developmental defect in Mrj mutants suggests that each of these genes may have unique tissue and cellular activities.  (+info)

Requirement of a novel gene, Xin, in cardiac morphogenesis. (3/46886)

A novel gene, Xin, from chick (cXin) and mouse (mXin) embryonic hearts, may be required for cardiac morphogenesis and looping. Both cloned cDNAs have a single open reading frame, encoding proteins with 2,562 and 1,677 amino acids for cXin and mXin, respectively. The derived amino acid sequences share 46% similarity. The overall domain structures of the predicted cXin and mXin proteins, including proline-rich regions, 16 amino acid repeats, DNA-binding domains, SH3-binding motifs and nuclear localization signals, are highly conserved. Northern blot analyses detect a single message of 8.9 and 5.8 kilo base (kb) from both cardiac and skeletal muscle of chick and mouse, respectively. In situ hybridization reveals that the cXin gene is specifically expressed in cardiac progenitor cells of chick embryos as early as stage 8, prior to heart tube formation. cXin continues to be expressed in the myocardium of developing hearts. By stage 15, cXin expression is also detected in the myotomes of developing somites. Immunofluorescence microscopy reveals that the mXin protein is colocalized with N-cadherin and connexin-43 in the intercalated discs of adult mouse hearts. Incubation of stage 6 chick embryos with cXin antisense oligonucleotides results in abnormal cardiac morphogenesis and an alteration of cardiac looping. The myocardium of the affected hearts becomes thickened and tends to form multiple invaginations into the heart cavity. This abnormal cellular process may account in part for the abnormal looping. cXin expression can be induced by bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) in explants of anterior medial mesoendoderm from stage 6 chick embryos, a tissue that is normally non-cardiogenic. This induction occurs following the BMP-mediated induction of two cardiac-restricted transcription factors, Nkx2.5 and MEF2C. Furthermore, either MEF2C or Nkx2.5 can transactivate a luciferase reporter driven by the mXin promoter in mouse fibroblasts. These results suggest that Xin may participate in a BMP-Nkx2.5-MEF2C pathway to control cardiac morphogenesis and looping.  (+info)

Characterization of an amphioxus paired box gene, AmphiPax2/5/8: developmental expression patterns in optic support cells, nephridium, thyroid-like structures and pharyngeal gill slits, but not in the midbrain-hindbrain boundary region. (4/46886)

On the basis of developmental gene expression, the vertebrate central nervous system comprises: a forebrain plus anterior midbrain, a midbrain-hindbrain boundary region (MHB) having organizer properties, and a rhombospinal domain. The vertebrate MHB is characterized by position, by organizer properties and by being the early site of action of Wnt1 and engrailed genes, and of genes of the Pax2/5/8 subfamily. Wada and others (Wada, H., Saiga, H., Satoh, N. and Holland, P. W. H. (1998) Development 125, 1113-1122) suggested that ascidian tunicates have a vertebrate-like MHB on the basis of ascidian Pax258 expression there. In another invertebrate chordate, amphioxus, comparable gene expression evidence for a vertebrate-like MHB is lacking. We, therefore, isolated and characterized AmphiPax2/5/8, the sole member of this subfamily in amphioxus. AmphiPax2/5/8 is initially expressed well back in the rhombospinal domain and not where a MHB would be expected. In contrast, most of the other expression domains of AmphiPax2/5/8 correspond to expression domains of vertebrate Pax2, Pax5 and Pax8 in structures that are probably homologous - support cells of the eye, nephridium, thyroid-like structures and pharyngeal gill slits; although AmphiPax2/5/8 is not transcribed in any structures that could be interpreted as homologues of vertebrate otic placodes or otic vesicles. In sum, the developmental expression of AmphiPax2/5/8 indicates that the amphioxus central nervous system lacks a MHB resembling the vertebrate isthmic region. Additional gene expression data for the developing ascidian and amphioxus nervous systems would help determine whether a MHB is a basal chordate character secondarily lost in amphioxus. The alternative is that the MHB is a vertebrate innovation.  (+info)

Regulation of body length and male tail ray pattern formation of Caenorhabditis elegans by a member of TGF-beta family. (5/46886)

We have identified a new member of the TGF-beta superfamily, CET-1, from Caenorhabditis elegans, which is expressed in the ventral nerve cord and other neurons. cet-1 null mutants have shortened bodies and male tail abnormal phenotype resembling sma mutants, suggesting cet-1, sma-2, sma-3 and sma-4 share a common pathway. Overexpression experiments demonstrated that cet-1 function requires wild-type sma genes. Interestingly, CET-1 appears to affect body length in a dose-dependent manner. Heterozygotes for cet-1 displayed body lengths ranging between null mutant and wild type, and overexpression of CET-1 in wild-type worms elongated body length close to lon mutants. In male sensory ray patterning, lack of cet-1 function results in ray fusions. Epistasis analysis revealed that mab-21 lies downstream and is negatively regulated by the cet-1/sma pathway in the male tail. Our results show that cet-1 controls diverse biological processes during C. elegans development probably through different target genes.  (+info)

Molecular cloning and epitope analysis of the peanut allergen Ara h 3. (6/46886)

Peanut allergy is a significant IgE-mediated health problem because of the increased prevalence, potential severity, and chronicity of the reaction. Following our characterization of the two peanut allergens Ara h 1 and Ara h 2, we have isolated a cDNA clone encoding a third peanut allergen, Ara h 3. The deduced amino acid sequence of Ara h 3 shows homology to 11S seed-storage proteins. The recombinant form of this protein was expressed in a bacterial system and was recognized by serum IgE from approximately 45% of our peanut-allergic patient population. Serum IgE from these patients and overlapping, synthetic peptides were used to map the linear, IgE-binding epitopes of Ara h 3. Four epitopes, between 10 and 15 amino acids in length, were found within the primary sequence, with no obvious sequence motif shared by the peptides. One epitope is recognized by all Ara h 3-allergic patients. Mutational analysis of the epitopes revealed that single amino acid changes within these peptides could lead to a reduction or loss of IgE binding. By determining which amino acids are critical for IgE binding, it might be possible to alter the Ara h 3 cDNA to encode a protein with a reduced IgE-binding capacity. These results will enable the design of improved diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for food-hypersensitivity reactions.  (+info)

TIF1gamma, a novel member of the transcriptional intermediary factor 1 family. (7/46886)

We report the cloning and characterization of a novel member of the Transcriptional Intermediary Factor 1 (TIF1) gene family, human TIF1gamma. Similar to TIF1alpha and TIF1beta, the structure of TIF1beta is characterized by multiple domains: RING finger, B boxes, Coiled coil, PHD/TTC, and bromodomain. Although structurally related to TIF1alpha and TIF1beta, TIF1gamma presents several functional differences. In contrast to TIF1alpha, but like TIF1beta, TIF1 does not interact with nuclear receptors in yeast two-hybrid or GST pull-down assays and does not interfere with retinoic acid response in transfected mammalian cells. Whereas TIF1alpha and TIF1beta were previously found to interact with the KRAB silencing domain of KOX1 and with the HP1alpha, MODI (HP1beta) and MOD2 (HP1gamma) heterochromatinic proteins, suggesting that they may participate in a complex involved in heterochromatin-induced gene repression, TIF1gamma does not interact with either the KRAB domain of KOX1 or the HP1 proteins. Nevertheless, TIF1gamma, like TIF1alpha and TIF1beta, exhibits a strong silencing activity when tethered to a promoter. Since deletion of a novel motif unique to the three TIF1 proteins, called TIF1 signature sequence (TSS), abrogates transcriptional repression by TIF1gamma, this motif likely participates in TIF1 dependent repression.  (+info)

Detailed methylation analysis of the glutathione S-transferase pi (GSTP1) gene in prostate cancer. (8/46886)

Glutathione-S-Transferases (GSTs) comprise a family of isoenzymes that provide protection to mammalian cells against electrophilic metabolites of carcinogens and reactive oxygen species. Previous studies have shown that the CpG-rich promoter region of the pi-class gene GSTP1 is methylated at single restriction sites in the majority of prostate cancers. In order to understand the nature of abnormal methylation of the GSTP1 gene in prostate cancer we undertook a detailed analysis of methylation at 131 CpG sites spanning the promoter and body of the gene. Our results show that DNA methylation is not confined to specific CpG sites in the promoter region of the GSTP1 gene but is extensive throughout the CpG island in prostate cancer cells. Furthermore we found that both alleles are abnormally methylated in this region. In normal prostate tissue, the entire CpG island was unmethylated, but extensive methylation was found outside the island in the body of the gene. Loss of GSTP1 expression correlated with DNA methylation of the CpG island in both prostate cancer cell lines and cancer tissues whereas methylation outside the CpG island in normal prostate tissue appeared to have no effect on gene expression.  (+info)

The newly released 454 FLX Titanium in October 2008 advanced the previous 454 FLX Standard system with nearly double the sequence reads and read lengths. A thorough assessment and optimization of 454 FLX Titanium sequencing system was done by the Technology Development Group at Joint Genome Institute. Currently applications like de novo whole genome shotgun assembly, transcriptome profiling, pyrotag sequencing and sequence capture technology are being optimized on the new 454 FLX Titanium systems.
Massively parallel high throughput sequencing technologies allow us to interrogate the microbial composition of biological samples at unprecedented resolution. The typical approach is to perform high-throughout sequencing of 16S rRNA genes, which are then taxonomically classified based on similarity to known sequences in existing databases. Current technologies cause a predicament though, because although they enable deep coverage of samples, they are limited in the length of sequence they can produce. As a result, high-throughout studies of microbial communities often do not sequence the entire 16S rRNA gene. The challenge is to obtain reliable representation of bacterial communities through taxonomic classification of short 16S rRNA gene sequences. In this study we explored properties of different study designs and developed specific recommendations for effective use of short-read sequencing technologies for the purpose of interrogating bacterial communities, with a focus on classification using
Background Next-generation sequencing platforms have revolutionised our ability to investigate the microbiota composition of complex environments, frequently through 16S rRNA gene sequencing of the bacterial component of the community. Numerous factors, including DNA extraction method, primer sequences and sequencing platform employed, can affect the accuracy of the results achieved. The aim of this study was to determine the impact of these three factors on 16S rRNA gene sequencing results, using mock communities and mock community DNA. Results The use of different primer sequences (V4-V5, V1-V2 and V1-V2 degenerate primers) resulted in differences in the genera and species detected. The V4-V5 primers gave the most comparable results across platforms. The three Ion PGM primer sets detected more of the 20 mock community species than the equivalent MiSeq primer sets. Data generated from DNA extracted using the 2 extraction methods were very similar. Conclusions Microbiota compositional data ...
Recently, many standalone applications have been proposed to correct sequencing errors in Illumina data. The key idea is that downstream analysis tools such as de novo genome assemblers benefit from a reduced error rate in the input data. Surprisingly, a systematic validation of this assumption using state-of-the-art assembly methods is lacking, even for recently published methods. For twelve recent Illumina error correction tools (EC tools) we evaluated both their ability to correct sequencing errors and their ability to improve de novo genome assembly in terms of contig size and accuracy. We confirm that most EC tools reduce the number of errors in sequencing data without introducing many new errors. However, we found that many EC tools suffer from poor performance in certain sequence contexts such as regions with low coverage or regions that contain short repeated or low-complexity sequences. Reads overlapping such regions are often ill-corrected in an inconsistent manner, leading to breakpoints in
Next generation sequencing technologies open exciting new possibilities for genome and transcriptome sequencing. While reads produced by these technologies are relatively short and error-prone compared to the Sanger method, their throughput is several magnitudes higher. We present a novel approach, called QPALMA, for computing accurate spliced alignments of short sequence reads that take advantage of the reads quality information as well as computational splice site predictions. In computational experiments we illustrate that the quality information as well as the splice site predictions [1] help to considerably improve the alignment quality. Our algorithms were optimized and tested using artificially spliced genomic reads produced with the Illumina Genome Analyzer for the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. ...

The SK-BR-3 cell line is one of the most important models for HER2+ breast cancers, which affect one in five breast cancer patients. SK-BR-3 is known to be highly rearranged although much of the variation is in complex and repetitive regions that may be underreported. Addressing this, we sequenced SK-BR-3 using long-read single molecule sequencing from Pacific Biosciences, and develop one of the most detailed maps of structural variations (SVs) in a cancer genome available with nearly 20,000 variants present, most of which were missed by short read sequencing. Surrounding the important ERBB2 oncogene (also known as HER2), we discover a complex sequence of nested duplications and translocations, suggesting a punctuated progression. Full-length transcriptome sequencing further revealed several novel gene fusions within the nested genomic variants. Combining long-read genome and transcriptome sequencing enables an in-depth analysis of how SVs disrupt the genome and sheds new light on the complex ...
As one of the most studied genome rearrangements, tandem repeats have a considerable impact on genetic backgrounds of inherited diseases. Many methods designed for tandem repeat detection on reference sequences obtain high quality results. However, in the case of a de novo context, where no reference sequence is available, tandem repeat detection remains a difficult problem. The short reads obtained with the second-generation sequencing methods are not long enough to span regions that contain long repeats. This length limitation was tackled by the long reads obtained with the third-generation sequencing platforms such as Pacific Biosciences technologies. Nevertheless, the gain on the read length came with a significant increase of the error rate. The main objective of nowadays studies on long reads is to handle the high error rate up to 16%. In this paper we present MixTaR, the first de novo method for tandem repeat detection that combines the high-quality of short reads and the large length of long

Progress in genetics and breeding in pea still suffers from the limited availability of molecular resources. SNP markers that can be identified through affordable sequencing processes, without the need for prior genome reduction or a reference genome to assemble sequencing data would allow the discovery and genetic mapping of thousands of molecular markers. Such an approach could significantly speed up genetic studies and marker assisted breeding for non-model species. A total of 419,024 SNPs were discovered using HiSeq whole genome sequencing of four pea lines, followed by direct identification of SNP markers without assembly using the discoSnp tool. Subsequent filtering led to the identification of 131,850 highly designable SNPs, polymorphic between at least two of the four pea lines. A subset of 64,754 SNPs was called and genotyped by short read sequencing on a subpopulation of 48 RILs from the cross Baccara x PI180693. This data was used to construct a WGGBS-derived pea genetic map comprising 64
Author Summary Human individual genome sequencing has recently become affordable, enabling highly detailed genetic sequence comparisons. While the identification and genotyping of single-nucleotide polymorphisms has already been successfully established for different sequencing platforms, the detection, quantification and genotyping of large-scale copy-number variants (CNVs), i.e., losses or gains of long genomic segments, has remained challenging. We present a computational approach that enables detecting CNVs in sequencing data and accurately identifies the actual copy-number at which DNA segments of interest occur in an individual genome. This approach enabled us to obtain novel insights into the largest human gene family - the olfactory receptors (ORs) - involved in smell perception. While previous studies reported an abundance of CNVs in ORs, our approach enabled us to globally identify absolute differences in OR gene counts that exist between humans. While several OR genes have very high gene
New generation DNA sequencing technologies are revolutionizing modern biological research. Scientists can now generate the rough equivalent of an entire human genome (~3 billion base-pairs of DNA) in just a few days with one single sequencing instrument. Until recently, such amounts of data could only be generated at large genome centers using hundreds of sequencers. The analysis of these data is complicated by their size - a single run of a sequencing instrument yields terabytes of information, often requiring a significant scale-up of the existing computational infrastructure. ...

Plant genomes, and eukaryotic genomes in general, are typically repetitive, polyploid and heterozygous, which complicates genome assembly1. The short read lengths of early Sanger and current next-generation sequencing platforms hinder assembly through complex repeat regions, and many draft and reference genomes are fragmented, lacking skewed GC and repetitive intergenic sequences, which are gaining importance due to projects like the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements (ENCODE)2. Here we report the whole-genome sequencing and assembly of the desiccation-tolerant grass Oropetium thomaeum. Using only single-molecule real-time sequencing, which generates long (,16 kilobases) reads with random errors, we assembled 99% (244 megabases) of the Oropetium genome into 625 contigs with an N50 length of 2.4 megabases. Oropetium is an example of a near-complete draft genome which includes gapless coverage over gene space as well as intergenic sequences such as centromeres, telomeres, transposable elements and ...
The goal of this demonstration project is to develop the capability to express complete biosynthetic pathways for natural products that are usually silent in their native microbial host (i.e. orphan biosynthetic gene clusters). Such a technology will increase our access to new chemical entities for potential use in drug development. By tailoring synthetic genomics techniques to the expression of biosynthetic gene clusters, we believe we will create the capacity to produce small molecules directly using synthetic expression constructs in platform production microorganisms. Publicly available high-throughput DNA sequencing data has already cataloged up to 20,000 orphan clusters; as a result, our approach has the potential to bring about the biological synthesis of a large number of natural products that are currently unavailable for evaluation as potential drugs. The proposed clones and expression constructs can be used as a starting point for evaluating the bioactivities of metabolites whose ...
The multikilobase reads that can be produced by single-molecule sequencing technologies may span complex, repetitive genomic regions but have high error rates. Bashir et al. use these reads to organize contigs assembled from accurate, short-read data, facilitating the analysis of clinically important regions of an outbreak strain of cholera. Advances in DNA sequencing technology have improved our ability to characterize most genomic diversity. However, accurate resolution of large structural events is challenging because of the short read lengths of second-generation technologies. Third-generation sequencing technologies, which can yield longer multikilobase reads, have the potential to address limitations associated with genome assembly. Here we combine sequencing data from second- and third-generation DNA sequencing technologies to assemble the two-chromosome genome of a recent Haitian cholera outbreak strain into two nearly finished contigs at |99.9% accuracy. Complex regions with clinically relevant
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Whole genome sequencing - spelling out a persons entire DNA genetic code - has moved one step closer to being a medical option for direct patient care.. Physicians and researchers at Mayo Clinic in Arizona and the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) successfully completed sequencing both a single patients normal and cancer cells - a tour de force of more than 6 billion DNA chemical bases.. While the whole genomes of several individuals or their cancers have been sequenced in recent years, this is believed to be among the first successful application of whole genome sequencing performed in support of the medical care of a specific cancer patient.. A male patient with pancreatic cancer was the first patient at Mayo Clinic to have whole genome sequencing performed on both his tumor and non-cancerous cells as part of a clinical research project. By comparing the tumor DNA to the patients normal DNA, researchers found genetic changes (mutations) that were important ...
Reference quality genomes provide a resource for studying gene structure, function, and evolution. However, often genes of interest are not completely or accurately assembled, leading to unknown errors in analyses or additional cloning efforts for the correct sequences. A promising solution is long-read sequencing. Here we tested PacBio-based long-read sequencing and diploid assembly for potential improvements to the Sanger-based intermediate-read zebra finch reference and Illumina-based short-read Annas hummingbird reference, two vocal learning avian species widely studied in neuroscience and genomics. With DNA of the same individuals used to generate the reference genomes, we generated diploid assemblies with the FALCON-Unzip assembler, resulting in contigs with no gaps in the megabase range, representing 150-fold and 200-fold improvements over the current zebra finch and hummingbird references, respectively. These long-read and phased assemblies corrected and resolved what we discovered to be

The advent of next-generation sequencing (NGS)4 technologies, which grew exponentially in the decade after publication of the first iteration of the human genome sequence (4), has provided substantial insights into new genes and the biological processes that underlie cancer pathogenesis. These insights are outlined below. NGS technologies parallelize sequencing processes via high-throughput means to produce millions of short sequencing reads from amplified DNA clones (5). NGS is also referred to as massively parallel sequencing, because the reaction steps occur in parallel with the detection steps and millions of reactions occur simultaneously (6). This parallelism makes it possible to read the same segment of a DNA sequence repeatedly to increase confidence in the sequence obtained for the targeted genomic segment. This multiple sampling of a genomic segment is referred to as the coverage of the sequencing run.. Before the NGS era, much progress had been made toward identifying mutated ...
CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): The availability of massive amounts of DNA sequence information has begun to revolutionize the practice of biology. As a result, current large-scale sequencing output, while impressive, is not adequate to keep pace with growing demand and, in particular, is far short of what will be required to obtain the 3-billion-base human genome sequence by the target date of 2005. To reach this goal, improved automation will be essential, and it is particularly important that human involvement in sequence data processing be significantly reduced or eliminated. Progress in this respect will require both improved accuracy of the data processing software and reliable accuracy measures to reduce the need for human involvement in error correction and make human review more efficient. Here, we describe one step toward that goal: a base-calling program for automated sequencer traces, phred, with improved accuracy. phred appears to be the first
We have developed and validated a low-coverage whole genome sequencing assay for genome-wide and high-resolution detection of copy number aberrations (CNAs) from inherited disorders. The analytical sensitivity was 0.765 for detecting CNVs of 25-50kb in size and 0.990 for detecting CNVs of over 50kb in size. The smallest detected deletion was 10kb.
The transcriptional architecture is a complex and dynamic aspect of a cells function. Next generation sequencing of steady state RNA (RNA-seq) gives unprecedented detail about the RNA landscape within a cell. Not only can expression levels of genes be interrogated without specific prior knowledge, but comparisons of expression levels between genes within a sample can be made. It has also been demonstrated that splicing variants [1, 2] and single nucleotide polymorphisms [3] can be detected through sequencing the transcriptome, opening up the opportunity to interrogate allele-specific expression and RNA editing.. An important aspect of dealing with the vast amounts of data generated from short read sequencing is the processing methods used to extract and interpret the information. Experience with microarray data has repeatedly shown that normalization is a critical component of the processing pipeline, allowing accurate estimation and detection of differential expression (DE) [4]. The aim of ...

Genomic heterogeneity of bacterial species is observed and studied in experimental evolution experiments and clinical diagnostics, and occurs as micro-diversity of natural habitats. The challenge for genome research is to accurately capture this heterogeneity with the currently used short sequencing reads. Recent advances in NGS technologies improved the speed and coverage and thus allowed for deep sequencing of bacterial populations. This facilitates the quantitative assessment of genomic heterogeneity, including low frequency alleles or haplotypes. However, false positive variant predictions due to sequencing errors and mapping artifacts of short reads need to be prevented. We therefore created VarCap, a workflow for the reliable prediction of different types of variants even at low frequencies. In order to predict SNPs, InDels and structural variations, we evaluated the sensitivity and accuracy of different software tools using synthetic read data. The results suggested that the best ...

Genome sequencing technologies are improving at a rapid pace. The current challenge is to find ways to extract all of the genetic information from the data. One of the biggest challenges has been the detection of CNVs. Sebat, in collaboration with Seungtai Yoon of CSHL and Kenny Ye, Ph.D., at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, developed a statistical method to estimate DNA copy number of a genomic region based on the number of sequences that map to that location (or read depth). When the genomes of multiple individuals are compared, regions that differ in copy number between individuals can be identified.. The new method allows the detection of small structural variants that could not be detected using earlier microarray-based methods. This is significant because most of the CNVs the genome are less than 5000 nucleotides in length. The new method is also able to detect certain classes of CNVs that other sequencing-based approaches struggle with, particularly those located in complex ...
Strategies for assembling large, complex genomes have evolved to include a combination of whole-genome shotgun sequencing and hierarchal map-assisted sequencing. Whole-genome maps of all types can aid genome assemblies, generally starting with low-resolution cytogenetic maps and ending with the highest resolution of sequence. Fingerprint clone maps are based upon complete restriction enzyme digests of clones representative of the target genome, and ultimately comprise a near-contiguous path of clones across the genome. Such clone-based maps are used to validate sequence assembly order, supply long-range linking information for assembled sequences, anchor sequences to the genetic map and provide templates for closing gaps. Fingerprint maps are also a critical resource for subsequent functional genomic studies, because they provide a redundant and ordered sampling of the genome with clones. In an accompanying paper we describe the draft genome sequence of the chicken, Gallus gallus, the first ...
We combined conventional fumC-fimH typing with deep amplicon sequencing to assess E. coli clonal diversity in a high-throughput manner. Our method has several advantages over existing protocols. First, our method has high sequencing resolution for target species. Since we sequence only E. coli fumC and fimH, we can generate ≥0.5 million reads per sample, yielding ≥5,000 reads per base. In contrast, metagenomic sequencing, which is nonspecific for target species, yields only 20 reads per base per genome (assuming a 5-Mb genome). Secondly, our method assessed up to 46 samples per sequencing run. In contrast, MLST requires typing ≥100 single colonies per sample to capture the low-prevalence strains that PLAP detects. Finally, while we developed PLAP for E. coli CH typing, PLAP is not limited to E. coli clonotyping and may be generalized to other MLST schemes. For those attempting to use or adapt our approach, we have provided guidelines for both the experimental and algorithm portions on ...
A framework technology comprising file format and toolkit in which we combine highly efficient and tunable reference-based compression of sequence data with a data format that is directly available for computational use. This compression method is tunable: The storage of quality scores and unaligned sequences may be adjusted for different experiments to conserve information or to minimize storage costs, and provides one opportunity to address the threat that increasing DNA sequence volumes will overcome our ability to store the sequences.
An advance online publication in Nature Biotechnology from Michael Snyders lab at Stanford University demonstrates the utility of long-read sequencing for assessing transcribed regions across the human genome. Long PacBio reads were able to completely cover full-length RNA molecules, characterizing genetic regions that have not been previously annotated.. The paper, entitled A single-molecule long-read survey of the human transcriptome, reports the application of Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT®) Sequencing to studying RNA, comparing it to results from libraries sequenced with a 454® instrument. The scientists sequenced cDNA synthesized from pooled RNA gathered from 20 human organs and tissues in order to identify as many transcript isoforms as possible.. The purpose of this effort was to find a better alternative to existing RNA-seq approaches, which have so far relied on short-read sequencers. It is difficult to identify full-length transcript iso-forms using short reads, the authors ...

Whole genome sequencing (WGS), which is the process of determining an organisms complete DNA sequence, can be used to identify DNA anomalies that cause disease. Identifying disease-causing DNA abnormalities allows clinicians to better predict an effective course of treatment for the patient.
Background|br /|Inherited retinal disorders are clinically and genetically heterogeneous with more than 150 gene defects accounting for the diversity of disease phenotypes. So far, mutation detection was mainly performed by APEX technology and direct Sanger sequencing of known genes. However, these methods are time consuming, expensive and unable to provide a result if the patient carries a new gene mutation. In addition, multiplicity of phenotypes associated with the same gene defect may be overlooked.|br /|Methods|br /|To overcome these challenges, we designed an exon sequencing array to target 254 known and candidate genes using Agilent capture. Subsequently, 20 DNA samples from 17 different families, including four patients with known mutations were sequenced using Illumina Genome Analyzer IIx next-generation-sequencing (NGS) platform. Different filtering approaches were applied to identify the genetic defect. The most likely disease causing variants were analyzed by Sanger sequencing. Co

Over the last few years, several initiatives have described efforts to combine previously invented techniques in molecular biology with parallel detection principles to sequence or genotype DNA signatures. The Infinium (R) system from Illumina and the Affymetrix GeneChips (R) are two systems suitable for whole-genome scoring of variable positions. However, directed candidate-gene approaches are more cost effective and several academic groups and the private sector provide techniques with moderate typing throughput combined with large sample capacity suiting these needs. Recently, whole-genome sequencing platforms based on the sequencing-by-synthesis principle were presented by 454 Life Sciences and Solexa, showing great potential as alternatives to conventional genotyping approaches. In addition to these sequencing initiatives, many efforts are pursuing novel ideas to facilitate fast and cost-effective whole genome sequencing, such as ligation-based sequencing.

N2 - Cancer is a disease driven in part by somatic mutations that accumulate during the lifetime of an individual. The clonal theory [1] posits that the cancerous cells in a tumor are descended from a single founder cell and that descendants of this cell acquired multiple mutations beneficial for tumor growth through rounds of selection and clonal expansion. A tumor is thus a heterogeneous population of cells, with different subpopulations of cells containing both clonal mutations from the founder cell or early rounds of clonal expansion, and subclonal mutations that occurred after the most recent clonal expansion. Most cancer sequencing projects sequence a mixture of cells from a tumor sample including admixture by normal (non-cancerous) cells and different subpopulations of cancerous cells. In addition ...

Sequence analysis of organelle genomes has revealed important aspects of plant cell evolution. The scope of this study was to develop an approach for de novo assembly of the carrot mitochondrial genome using next generation sequence data from total genomic DNA. Sequencing data from a carrot 454 whole genome library were used to develop a de novo assembly of the mitochondrial genome. Development of a new bioinformatic tool allowed visualizing contig connections and elucidation of the de novo assembly. Southern hybridization demonstrated recombination across two large repeats. Genome annotation allowed identification of 44 protein coding genes, three rRNA and 17 tRNA. Identification of the plastid genome sequence allowed organelle genome comparison. Mitochondrial intergenic sequence analysis allowed detection of a fragment of DNA specific to the carrot plastid genome. PCR amplification and sequence analysis across different Apiaceae species revealed consistent conservation of this fragment in the

Advancements in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies regarding throughput, read length and accuracy had a major impact on microbiome research by significantly improving 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing. As rapid improvements in sequencing platforms and new data analysis pipelines are introduced, it is essential to evaluate their capabilities in specific applications. The aim of this study was to assess whether the same project-specific biological conclusions regarding microbiome composition could be reached using different sequencing platforms and bioinformatics pipelines. Chicken cecum microbiome was analyzed by 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing using Illumina MiSeq, Ion Torrent PGM, and Roche 454 GS FLX Titanium platforms, with standard and modified protocols for library preparation. We labeled the bioinformatics pipelines included in our analysis QIIME1 and QIIME2 (de novo OTU picking [not to be confused with QIIME version 2 commonly referred to as QIIME2]), QIIME3 and QIIME4 (open reference OTU
RNA-Sequencing (RNA-Seq) broadly refers to a family of experimental techniques that give researchers the ability to study the transcriptional landscapes of cells and tissues quantitatively by exploiting high throughput sequencing technology. Currently, the most commonly used sequencing platforms are provided by Illumina, which uses a fluorescence-based paradigm for reading the bases in a nucleotide sequence. One alternative option is provided by Ion Torrent, which is built around the use of pH measurements to read nucleotide sequences. In addition to the distinct sequencing technologies used by these two platforms, there are smaller differences in the types of data they generate. In Illumina data all sequence reads generated during a single experiment have the same lengths, while the lengths of Ion Torrent reads vary. Additionally, the current generation of Illumina instruments can generate sequence reads from both ends of a fragment (paired-end reads), while Ion Torrent cannot.. Prior studies ...
The information contained in the genome of an organism, its DNA, is expressed through transcription of its genes to RNA, in quantities determined by many internal and external factors. As such, studying the gene expression can give valuable information for e.g. clinical diagnostics. A common analysis workflow of RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq) data consists of mapping the sequencing reads to a reference genome, followed by the transcript assembly and quantification based on these alignments. The advent of second-generation sequencing revolutionized the field by reducing the sequencing costs by 50,000-fold. Now another revolution is imminent with the third-generation sequencing platforms producing an order of magnitude higher read lengths. However, higher error rate, higher cost and lower throughput compared to the second-generation sequencing bring their own challenges. To compensate for the low throughput and high cost, hybrid approaches using both short second-generation and long third-generation ...

Next-generation sequencing technologies are rapidly generating whole-genome datasets for an increasing number of organisms. However, phylogenetic reconstruction of genomic data remains difficult because de novo assembly for non-model genomes and multi-genome alignment are challenging. To greatly simplify the analysis, we present an Assembly and Alignment-Free (AAF) method ( https://sourceforge.net/projects/aaf-phylogeny ) that constructs phylogenies directly from unassembled genome sequence data, bypassing both genome assembly and alignment. Using mathematical calculations, models of sequence evolution, and simulated sequencing of published genomes, we address both evolutionary and sampling issues caused by direct reconstruction, including homoplasy, sequencing errors, and incomplete sequencing coverage. From these results, we calculate the statistical properties of the pairwise distances between genomes, allowing us to optimize parameter
Dramatic advances in sequencing technologies have opened new possibilities for whole genome analysis. The increasing read length of next-generation sequencing platforms, as well as the promising perspectives of third generation sequencing platforms, will inevitably lead to better assemblies and represent genomes in large stretches of DNA. Also, third generation technologies (such as the PacBio and IonTorrent systems) will be capable of outputting sequencing reads with large undefined inserts, thus providing valuable paired read information for the assembly and scaffolding process. Concurrently, the development of genome closure software should also receive attention to overcome difficult genomic regions that cannot be covered by draft assemblies.. Our results with GapFiller indicate that gapped genomics regions can be reliably closed through an automatic protocol that uses only short sequencing reads. Costly Sanger sequencing can therefore be limited to a few difficult repeat areas. Also, we ...
The development of next-generation massively parallel sequencing technologies (NGS), including the Roche 454™ Genome Sequencer FLX Instrument, the Illumina Genome Analyzer, Life Technologys Ion Torrent™ Personal Genome Machine, and the Pacific Biosciences RS have revolutionized genomic and genetic research, significantly improved sequencing throughput, reduced costs for data production, and advanced research from weeks to hours.
Next-generation DNA sequencing (NGS) offers a promising way to obtain massive numbers of orthologous loci to understand phylogenetic relationships among organisms. Of particular interest are old museum specimens and other samples with degraded DNA, where traditional sequencing methods have proven to be challenging. Low coverage shotgun sequencing and sequence capture are two widely used NGS approaches for degraded DNA. Sequence capture can yield sequence data for large numbers of orthologous loci, but it can only be used to sequence genomic regions near conserved sequences that can be used as probes. Low coverage shotgun sequencing has the potential to yield different data types throughout the genome. However, many studies using this method have often generated mitochondrial sequences, and few nuclear sequences, suggesting orthologous nuclear sequences are likely harder to recover. To determine the phylogenetic position of the galliform genus Tropicoperdix, whose phylogenetic position is currently

Since few studies have been focused on the RNA profile of the liquid fraction of synovial fluid (SF) from osteoarthritis (OA) patients, we determined whether it contains enough RNA for profiling. We removed cells from SF and extract RNA for building a cDNA library, followed by the second-generation sequencing and bioinformatic analyses. From one SF sample of an OA patient, we obtained 0.096 µg RNA for building a cDNA library. From this library the second-generation sequencing produced 66,154,562 clean reads, 91.28% of which were matched to the reference with 2,682 genes identified. From another patients SF sample, 0.24 µg RNA was obtained and sequencing of the established cDNA library produced 64,463,162 clean reads but, unexpectedly, only 22.40% of the reads were matched to the human genome, although 5,081 genes were identified. Some of the unmatchable reads matched RNAs of bacteria, mainly pseudomonas, likely derived from previous infections since the patients had no obvious systemic ...
Modern biology operates with a large amount of data and investigates very complex systems. Scientists use complicated algorithms and very sophisticated software, which is impossible to run, without access to significant computing resources. In addition, modern biology requires efficient large data volumes processing, such as DNA sequences, proteins structure, Genome Scale Modeling, and molecular dynamics simulation. Recent advances in Next Generation Genome Sequencing technology led to significant increase in amount of sequencing data that has to be processed, analysed and made available for bioinformaticians worldwide. The ancient DNA analysis is one of the most challenging and CPU consuming scientific problems.. It can take a couple of months on super-computer at NRC KI to run widely used package PALEOMIX to analyse ancient genome sequencing data.

We were prompted to develop the BisPCR2 method by our need for a high-throughput, cost-effective method for interrogating multiple CpGs at base resolution within multiple target loci of interest. Fluorescence-based approaches to targeted bisulfite sequencing are limited by the number of CpGs that can be measured at one time, the inability to multiplex, and the reliance of measurements on a secondary enzymatic reaction. Next-generation sequencing techniques for targeted bisulfite sequencing employ the same strategy of bisulfite conversion and amplification of target loci, but result in a far more robust output by directly measuring base content of each CpG within an amplicon. Further, the ability to multiplex means that a single sequencing reaction can yield information about multiple target loci for multiple biological samples. One impediment of NGS approaches is the additional step of DNA sequencing library preparation following target enrichment, which can be expensive and time consuming. We ...

CREST. The accurate identification of structural variations using whole-genome DNA sequencing data generated by next-generation sequencing technology is extremely difficult. To address this challenge, we have developed CREST, an algorithm that uses sequencing reads with partial alignments to the reference human genome (so-called soft-clipped reads) to directly map the breakpoints of somatic structural variations. We applied CREST to paired tumor/normal whole genome sequencing data from five cases of T-lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL). A total of 110 somatic structural variants were identified, ,80% of which were validated by genomic PCR and Sanger sequencing. The validated structural variants included 31 inter-chromosomal translocations, 19 intra-chromosomal translocations, one inversion, 22 deletions and 16 insertions. A comparison of the results generated with CREST to those obtained using the traditional paired-end discordant mapping methods demonstrate CREST to have a much higher ...

Short-read sequencing technologies have long been the work-horse of microbiome analysis. Continuing technological advances are making the application of long-read sequencing to metagenomic samples increasingly feasible. We demonstrate that whole bacterial chromosomes can be obtained from an enriched community, by application of MinION sequencing to a sample from an EBPR bioreactor, producing 6 Gb of sequence that assembles into multiple closed bacterial chromosomes. We provide a simple pipeline for processing such data, which includes a new approach to correcting erroneous frame-shifts. Advances in long-read sequencing technology and corresponding algorithms will allow the routine extraction of whole chromosomes from environmental samples, providing a more detailed picture of individual members of a microbiome.

This is the first evaluation of a novel fast broad-range 16S rDNA PCR/sequencing assay in a Canadian patient population, and the first study of the clinical utility of DPO primers for the routine molecular analysis of heart valve tissue in consecutive patients with and without infective IE. Additionally, our study had the advantage of extensive clinical information to better delineate the Dukes minor criteria for all patients. Our study confirms the higher sensitivity of molecular heart valve testing compared to tissue culture [35-38]. However, our novel assay has one of the highest reported sensitivities of a user-developed broad-range 16S rDNA PCR to date. Although pre-operative blood cultures make a microbiologic diagnosis in approximately two-thirds of patients suspected of having IE, subsequent molecular analysis of heart valve tissue contributed to the microbiologic diagnosis of 31 % of our patients. However, the change in diagnosis would only be expected to contribute to the clinical ...

The Illumina MiSeq uses the same established reversible-terminator sequencing by synthesis chemistry as the HiSeq2000. Researchers have a wide range of sequencing read options ranging from 36 bp singleton to 150 bp paired-end reads. The system is capable of generating over 2 Gb data per run with a high percentage of bases over Q30. The high data yield and superior quality allows scientists to conduct a wide variety of sequencing applications including: highly multiplexed PCR amplicon sequencing, small genome sequencing and de novo sequencing, small RNA sequencing, targeted resequencing and 16S metagenomics.. The addition of numerous Illumina MiSeqs adds another level of sequencing for our clients, said Ardy Arianpour, Vice President of Business Development at Ambry Genetics. Our scientists have spent the last couple months validating sequencing runs and getting amazing results so we can deliver and work with multiple types of samples that fit on the MiSeq.. The MiSeq is a fully integrated ...
http://lifetech-it.hosted.jivesoftware.com/community/torrent_dev/blog/2011/11/08/leveraging-flow-order-and-flow-signals. A major strength of the Ion Torrent semiconductor sequencing system is that a SNP is not equivalent to an error, or more precisely single base substitutions are not equivalent to a single sequencing error. While the base calls that are provided are accurate, even greater levels of performance are available by taking into account flow orders and flow signals.. Homopolymers are observed one-at-a-time during sequencing, with the given homopolymer base determined by the flow order. For example, a flow order of ACGT would cycle through each base one a time. More intricate flow orders, like TACGTACGTCTGAGCATCGATCGATGTACAGC, can yield significant advantages to overcome carry-forward (signals from out-of-phase templates) and incomplete extension (templates that do not fully extend). Furthermore, flow orders also imply something about the likelihood of an error versus a variant (more ...

Mycobacterium tuberculosis is characterised by limited genomic diversity, which makes the application of whole genome sequencing particularly attractive for clinical and epidemiological investigation. However, in order to confidently infer transmission events, an accurate knowledge of the rate of change in the genome over relevant timescales is required. We attempted to estimate a molecular clock by sequencing 199 isolates from epidemiologically linked tuberculosis cases, collected in the Netherlands spanning almost 16 years. Multiple analyses support an average mutation rate of ~0.3 SNPs per genome per year. However, all analyses revealed a very high degree of variation around this mean, making the confirmation of links proposed by epidemiology, and inference of novel links, difficult. Despite this, in some cases, the phylogenetic context of other strains provided evidence supporting the confident exclusion of previously inferred epidemiological links. This in-depth analysis of the molecular clock
The introduction of new sequencing technologies whole-genome sequencing (WGS) and whole-exome sequencing (WES) that are much less finely targeted than previous genetic tests has resulted in ethical debate about what should be done with clinically significant findings that may arise during the sequencing process. In this piece we argue that, in addition to whether the finding has been intentionally sought or arises incidentally, the ethical issues concerning what should be done with WES and WGS findings are also influenced by whether sequencing occurs in a clinical or research setting. We argue that decisions about the disclosure of WGS and WES findings generated in the clinical context are much less ethically contentious than decision making about the feedback of research results. We conclude by calling for greater transparency about the purpose of sample collection, more explicit protocols for transitioning between research and clinical contexts and patients and research participants to be warned of
The one consistent finding among viral metagenomics studies has been the high proportion of sequences having no significant homology to a known sequence within one of the large sequence databases (e.g., GenBank, UniRef etc.). Those viral metagenome libraries having the highest frequency of hits to known sequences typically come from marine environments where the hit frequency for longer Sanger reads is around 30% (at a BLAST e-score of ≤0.001) [12]. Sanger libraries from soils show even lower hit rates at ~20%. The lack of homology to known sequences is only exacerbated by the shorter read lengths of next-generation sequencing technology [33] where libraries sequenced using the longest average read length next generation sequencing technology (i.e., 450 bp for the 454 pyrosequencing Ti FLX chemistry) yield hit rates to known sequence databases of less than 20%. In contrast, microbial shotgun metagenome libraries analyzed using the same databases and approaches will yield hit frequencies of ca. ...
Researchers funded by the National Institutes of Health have used a rapid DNA sequencing technique to identify gene variants in roughly a third of cases of nonimmune Hydrops fetalis (NIHF), a serious condition in which a fetus develops fluid buildup inside the abdominal cavity, lungs, or other parts of the body. The findings suggest that the DNA sequencing technique, known as exome sequencing, could be used to provide information unavailable with current genetic testing methods.
The proliferation of large-scale DNA-sequencing projects in recent years has driven a search for alternative methods to reduce time and cost. Here we describe a scalable, highly parallel sequencing system with raw throughput significantly greater than that of state-of-the-art capillary electrophoresis instruments. The apparatus uses a novel fibre-optic slide of individual wells and is able to sequence 25 million bases, at 99% or better accuracy, in one four-hour run. To achieve an approximately 100-fold increase in throughput over current Sanger sequencing technology, we have developed an emulsion method for DNA amplification and an instrument for sequencing by synthesis using a pyrosequencing protocol optimized for solid support and picolitre-scale volumes. Here we show the utility, throughput, accuracy and robustness of this system by shotgun sequencing and de novo assembly of the Mycoplasma genitalium genome with 96% coverage at 99.96% accuracy in one run of the machine. The race is on for a big
