  3. 3. Genomics and Proteomics lab - www.tnaugenomics.comComparing genomes: Example from the grasses This is now one of the most well-known figures in plant comparative genomics. This consensus comparative map of 7 grasses shows how the genomes can be aligned in terms of “rice linkage blocks” (Gale and Devos 1998). Any radial line starting at rice, the smallest genome and innermost circle, will pass through regions of similar gene content in each of the other species. Therefore a gene on the chromosome of one grass species can be anticipated to be present in a predicted location on a specific chromosome of a number of other grass family species. This has facilitated much sharing among researchers working on any of these species and others that may be also related (Phillips & Freeling 1998).

  5. 5. Genomics and Proteomics lab - SNP discovery- Early methods • Re-sequencing of PCR amplicons with or without pre-screening • Direct sequencing of DNA segments amplified by PCR)from several individuals is the most direct way to identify SNP polymorphisms • Alternatively, an allele-specific-PCR or primer-extension assay may be developed relatively straightforwardly. Rafalski 2002 Curr Opin Plant Biol 5 :94-100
  6. 6. Genomics and Proteomics lab - DNA sequencing output If you have DNA sequence produced from a PCR product or a library of ESTs, the sequence of your DNA segment(s) will be given to or, more usually, emailed or electronically transferred to you.. If the data is in the chromatogram form, you will need to manually generate a text file such as the one below (by “reading” the bases yourself) or, more typically, use one of the many software programs available to do this for you. If you retrieve a sequence from a public database, it will already be in this format for you. The first 480 bases of the DNA sequence of GAN, a drought tolerance related gene in Arabidopsis (GenBank Accession AY986818).
  7. 7. Background information : Markers• The identification of varieties of agricultural crops is important at every stage of the seed production chain (Cooke, 1995).• The only legally recognized method in our country for genetic purity assessment based on field plot grow out tests, which include only the morphological traits• But morphological traits may not be sufficient for discrimination of all new varieties and hybrids, they also subjected to environmental influences and requires one full season .
  8. 8. Genomics and Proteomics lab - What are molecular markers? • A marker, in this context, is an identifier (sometimes called a “tag”) of a particular aspect of phenotype and/or genotype; its inheritance can easily be followed from generation to generation. • Markers can be: Morphological: phenotypic variation which is scorable on the basis of a single plants (e.g. flowering time) • Biochemical: variants in the size or net charge of a protein (eg isozymes) or in the chemical composition of a metabolite (e.g. sugar) • Molecular: variants in the DNA sequence (eg microsatellites)
  9. 9. Genomics and Proteomics lab - Molecular markers : Costs • Using molecular markers requires the use of specific laboratory equipment, at the very least a PCR (polymerase chain reaction) thermalcycler and electrophoresis and visualization equipment. • So start-up costs can be high, although these may be compensated for by later savings (and prices of the necessary equipment and reagents have been decreasing over time).
  10. 10. Genomics and Proteomics lab - Molecular markers : Technical skills needed • Along with the equipment required for molecular marker work comes the need for the technical skills and knowledge of how to do the work and understand the results. • These are not difficult skills to learn, but are not always part of a classical plant breeder’s education.
  11. 11. Genomics and Proteomics lab - Considerations in selection of marker type • There are many types of molecular markers available. Which type you select to use for your project will depend on: • What the goals of the project are • How variable the germplasm is • What sort of population is being analyzed • What level of resolution is needed • Whether or not there is previous work you can take advantage of (ie. Marker development)

Genomics and Proteomics lab - PCR Schematic drawing of the different steps of polymerase chain reaction (PCR): (a) denaturing step at 92-95°C; (b) primer annealing step (37-68°C depending of the technique); (c) extension step at 72°C (P=Taq DNA polymerase), and (d) end of the first cycle with two copies of DNA strands. The two resulting DNA strands make up the template DNA for the next cycle, thus doubling the amount of DNA duplicated for each new cycle.

  19. 19. Genomics and Proteomics lab - AFLP(Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphisms) Developed in the early 1990’s by Keygene Combination of both RFLP and PCR techniques Four steps  DNA is digested with two different restrictionenzymes  Oligonucleotide adapters are ligated to the endsof the DNA fragments  Specific subsets of DNA digestion products are amplified, using combinations of selective primers  Polymorphism detection is possible with radioisotopes, fluorescent dyes or silver staining

  22. 22. Genomics and Proteomics lab - Genome organization • It is important to remember that only part (sometimes a very small part!) of the DNA sequence is composed of genes. • The rest is non-coding sequence, including lots of repetitive sequences, microsatellites and transposons. In some species, the genic fraction of the genome may be <10% of the total.
