Jonathan Eisen talk on "Enodsymbiont Genomics" at Lake Arrowhead Small Genomes Meeting 2006

  1. 1. NO TITLEJonathan A. Eisen U. C. Davis
  2. 2. Famous Arrowhead Quotes 2006• Publications, student degrees, etc.• Not trying to say anything bad about anyone• The human guts are a real milieu• Where’s you evening gown?• You better kiss everybody• This is how you do metagenomics on 50 dollars, and that’s Canadian dollars
  3. 3. Lessons Learned at Arrowhead 2006• Open availability of genome sequences has revolutionized microbiology• Open Source software tools can help allow non informatics specialists to make use of genome data• Open genome databases can make sense of disparate information
  4. 4. Lessons Not Yet Learned• What about Open Access to publications?• Open Access can revolutionize the use of the literature just as Genbank revolutionized the use of sequence data
  5. 5. Outline• Introduction• Three endosymbiont genomics tales – Wolbachia – Sharpshooter – Calyptogena• Where next?
  6. 6. Sources for the Origin of Novelty• New biochemical functions – Evolution of new genes – Old genes with new functions – Mixing and matching existing genes• Changes in uses of existing genes – Targeting – Regulation• Acquisition of new functions – Recombination – Lateral gene transfer – Symbioses
  7. 7. Endosymbioses Drove Eukaryotic Evolution QuickTime™ and a TIFF (LZW) decompressor are needed to see this picture.
  8. 8. But ….• Key questions unresolved – Was the pre-organelle ancestor free-living? – What the ancestor a mutualist? a parasite? – What happened early in the evolution of the symbiosis?• The problems with organelles – Symbioses were so long ago that it is nearly impossible to figure out what the early events were. – May represent frozen accidents• Solution? – Study more recent and more diverse symbioses
  9. 9. Wolbachia pipientis wMel• Wolbachia are obligate, maternally transmitted intracellular symbionts• Wolbachia infect many invertebrate species – Many cause male specific deleterious effects – Model system for studying sex ratio changes in hosts – Some are mutualistic (e.g., in filarial nematodes)• wMel selected as model system because it infects Drosophila melanogaster

  17. 17. Explanations for EndosymbiontDifferences with Free-Living Relatives• Repair hypothesis – Loss of DNA repair genes leads to increased mutation rate – Trends are the direct and indirect result of this increased mutation rate• Population genetics hypothesis – Smaller effective population size leads to more genetic drift – Trends are mostly the result of accumulation of slightly deleterious mutations• PopGen explanations favored – Wolbachia has full suite of repair genes
