  1. 1. TIGRTIGRTIGRTIGR “Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution.” T. H. Dobzhansky (1973)
  2. 2. TIGRTIGR Talk Outline • Complete Genome Projects - history and current status • What have we learned about evolutionary history and processes from recent genome projects • Two main themes - completeness and closeness • Coming attractions • Why we need more genomes
  3. 3. TIGRTIGR The Institute for Genomic Research • A not for profit institution, staff ~230 • Departments: – Eukaryotic Genomics – Microbial Genomics – Functional Genomics – Bioinformatics – Sequencing Core
  4. 4. TIGRTIGR General Steps in Analysis of Complete Genomes • Identification/prediction of genes • Characterization of gene features • Characterization of genome features • Prediction of gene function • Prediction of pathways • Integration with known biological data • Comparative genomics
  5. 5. TIGRTIGR Complete Genome/Chromosome Progress 0 10 20 30 40 50 Complete Genomes 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 Year Eukaryote Archaea Bacteria
  6. 6. TIGRTIGR Limitations of Genome Analysis • Functional predictions are PREDICTIONS • Need to follow up all predictions with experimental work • Each genome sequence is a snapshots of one clone • Genome analysis is not able to identify novel processes • Annotation needs to be updated • Assembly can be wrong • Some parts of genome may be missed (e.g., low copy plasmids)
  7. 7. TIGRTIGR Evolutionary Genomics I: Selection of Species • Phylogenetic diversity • Relatedness to model organism • Understanding major evolutionary transitions • Determining right depth • Short branch lengths

  11. 11. TIGRTIGR
  12. 12. TIGRTIGR Genome sequences and evolution • Origin of new gene function • Gene loss • Genome degradation • Gene and genome duplication • Rates and patterns of mutation, recombination • Gene transfer • Species evolution
  13. 13. TIGRTIGR Evolutionary Genome Analysis I: Functional Prediction
  14. 14. TIGRTIGR Evolutionary Genome Analysis II: Gene Loss
  15. 15. TIGRTIGR EuksArchBacteriaLossEvolutionary Origin of GeneMTMJSCHSAADRTABSMGMPBBTPHPHIECSSMTPresence ( ) or Absence of GeneSpecies AbbreviationKingdom Example of Tracing Gene Loss TIGRTIGR
  16. 16. TIGRTIGR Why Identify Gene Loss • Indicates that gene is not absolutely required for survival • Parallel loss of same gene in different species may indicate selective advantage of loss of that gene • Correlated loss of genes in a pathway indicates a conserved association among those genes (important for phylogenetic profiles) • Loss in organellar genomes frequently accompanied by gain in nuclear genome

  18. 18. TIGRTIGR Evolution and Complete Genomes II: Gene and Genome Duplication
  19. 19. TIGRTIGR Why Duplications Are Useful to Identify • Allows division into orthologs and paralogs • Improves functional predictions • Helps identify mechanisms of duplication • Can be used to study mutation processes in different parts of a genome • Lineage specific duplications may be indicative of species’ specific adaptations

  30. 30. TIGRTIGR Why are Inversions Symmetrical Around Origin • Genetic studies in Salmonella and E. coli suggest that there may be strong selection against other inversions – Mahan, Segall, Schmid and Roth – Liu and Sanderson – Rebollo, Francois, and, Louarn
  31. 31. TIGRTIGR Evolution and Complete Genomes IV: Gene Transfer
  32. 32. TIGRTIGR Why Gene Transfers Are Useful to Identify • Laterally transferred genes frequently involved in environmental adaptations and/or pathogenicity • Helps identify transposons, integrons, and other vectors of gene transfer • Helps identify species associations in the environment
  33. 33. TIGRTIGR Tree of Life or Web of Life?
  34. 34. TIGRTIGR Most ‘Evidence’ for Gene Transfer has Alternative Explanations
  35. 35. TIGRTIGR How to Infer Gene Transfers • Unusual distribution patterns • Unusual nucleotide composition • High sequence similarity to supposedly distantly related species • Unusual gene trees • Observe transfer events

  41. 41. TIGRTIGR Lateral Transfer Inference Based on Complete Genome Analysis II: Bacterial to Vertebrate Transfers Based on Analysis of the Human Genome
  42. 42. TIGRTIGR Lander et al. ‘Evidence’ • Genes match bacteria not non-vertebrate eukaryotes • Or, genes have stronger match to bacteria than non-vertebrates • A set of ~120 of these genes found in many bacterial species
  43. 43. TIGRTIGR Alternative explanations • Gene loss from non-vertebrate eukaryotes • Rapid divergence in non-vertebrate eukaryotes • Incomplete genomes (e.g., D. melanogaster) • Bad annotation/gene finding • Contamination

  46. 46. TIGRTIGR Number of pBVTs is Dependent on # of Genomes Analyzed
  47. 47. TIGRTIGR Birney et al, same issue of Nature as complete genome “The unfinished human genomic DNA may contain contamination, particularly from bacteria but also from other sources. Contaminating DNA is routinely removed from finished sequence, but some is still present in unfinished sequence. If the predicted gene matches a bacterial gene more closely than any vertebrate gene then it will almost always be a contaminant.”

  65. 65. TIGRTIGR Limited Ecological and Physiological Diversity • All genomes from cultured species or pathogens/symbionts • Limited ecological diversity – most are from pathogens or thermophiles • Limited physiological diversity – need whole range for particular physiologies, not just extremes
  66. 66. TIGRTIGR
  67. 67. TIGRTIGR Why Completeness is Important • Improves characterization of genome features – Gene order, replication origins • Better comparative genomics – Genome duplications, inversions • Presence and absence of particular genes can be very important (e.g., gene loss) • Missing sequence might be important (e.g., centromere) • Allows researchers to focus on biology not sequencing • Facilitates large scale correlation studies
  68. 68. TIGRTIGR Acknowledgements • Genome inversions: S. Salzberg, J. Heidelberg, O. White, A. Stoltzfus, J. Peterson, H. Ochman • Genome sequences and analysis: J. Heidelberg, T. Read, H. Tettelin, K. Nelson, J. Peterson, R. Fleischmann, D. Bryant • Horizontal transfers: K. Nelson, W. F. Doolittle • TIGR: C. Fraser, J. Venter, M-I. Benito, S. Kaul, Seqcore • $$$: NSF, NIH, ONR, DOE
  69. 69. TIGRTIGR Evolutionary Studies Improve Most Aspects of Genome Analysis • Phylogeny of species places comparative data in perspective • Evolution of genes and gene families – Functional predictions – Identification of orthologs and paralogs – Species specific mutation patterns • Evolution of pathways – Convergence – Prediction of function • Evolution of gene order/genome rearrangements • Phylogenetic distribution patterns • Identification of novel features
  70. 70. TIGRTIGR Genome Information and Analysis Improves Studies of Evolution • Complete genome information particularly useful • Unbiased sampling • More sequences of genes • Presence/absence information needed to infer certain events (e.g., gene loss, duplication) • Genome wide mutation and substitution patterns (e.g., strand bias) • Diversification and duplication
  71. 71. TIGRTIGR
  72. 72. TIGRTIGR
  73. 73. TIGRTIGR Tracing Gene Loss • Need presence and absence information of orthologous genes from different species • Determining absence requires a complete genome • May still miss some homologs (e.g., due to rapid divergence) • Helps to have closely related species • Use standard character state reconstruction methods to infer gene gain and loss
