Sequencing of Treponema pallidum subsp. pallidum from isolate UZ1974 using Anti-Treponemal Antibodies Enrichment: First complete whole genome sequence obtained directly from human clinical material.

Treponema pallidum subsp. pallidum (TPA) is the infectious agent of syphilis, a disease that infects more than 5 million people annually. Since TPA is an uncultivable bacterium, most of the information on TPA genetics comes from genome sequencing and molecular typing studies. This study presents the first complete TPA genome (without sequencing gaps) of clinical isolate (UZ1974), which was obtained directly from clinical material, without multiplication in rabbits. Whole genome sequencing was performed usin...

Whole-Genome Bisulfite Sequencing for the Methylation Analysis of Insect Genomes.

DNA methylation is a conserved epigenetic modification of animal genomes, but genome methylation patterns appear surprisingly diverse in insects. Whole-genome bisulfite sequencing (WGBS) represents a sensitive and robust method for the characterization of genome-wide methylation patterns at single-base resolution. Here, we describe a step-by-step protocol for the generation and analysis of WGBS datasets using standard Illumina sequencing platforms. In comparison to whole-genome sequencing, WGBS has addition...

Development of the Knowledge of Genome Sequencing (KOGS) questionnaire.

Complete genome sequencing of Comamonas kerstersii 8943, a causative agent for peritonitis.

Because of poor differentiation among the members of genus Comamonas using phenotypic methods, human infections caused by C. kerstersii are sporadically reported in the literature. Here, we represent the first complete genome sequence of C. kerstersii 8943, which caused peritonitis in a patient with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). The complete genome with no gaps was obtained using third-generation Pacific Biosciences (PacBio) RSII sequencing system with single-molecule real-time (SMRT) an...

Purification of oocysts obtained from human stool specimens for whole genome sequencing.

is a food-borne intestinal human parasite that causes outbreaks of diarrhea. There is a need for efficient laboratory methods for strain-level characterization to assist in outbreak investigations. By using next generation sequencing, genomic sequences can be obtained and compared to identify potential genotyping markers. However, there is no method available to propagate this parasite in the laboratory. Therefore, genomic DNA must be extracted from oocysts purified from human stool. The objective of this s...

Analysis of FOXO3 Gene Polymorphisms Associated with Human Longevity.

Next-generation DNA sequencing has ushered in a new era of genotype-phenotype comparisons that have the potential to elucidate the genetic nature of complex traits. Since such methods rely on short sequence reads and since the human genome is composed largely of repetitive DNA elements larger than these read lengths many results cannot be mapped and are discarded, thus eliminating a large portion of the genome from analysis. Discerning associations in complex traits, such as longevity, will require either l...

Long-read whole genome sequencing and comparative analysis of six strains of the human pathogen Orientia tsutsugamushi.

Orientia tsutsugamushi is a clinically important but neglected obligate intracellular bacterial pathogen of the Rickettsiaceae family that causes the potentially life-threatening human disease scrub typhus. In contrast to the genome reduction seen in many obligate intracellular bacteria, early genetic studies of Orientia have revealed one of the most repetitive bacterial genomes sequenced to date. The dramatic expansion of mobile elements has hampered efforts to generate complete genome sequences using shor...

Clinical-grade validation of whole genome sequencing reveals robust detection of low-frequency variants and copy number alterations in CLL.

The 100 000 Genome Project aims to develop a diagnostics platform by introducing whole genome sequencing (WGS) into clinical practice. Samples from patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia were subjected to WGS. WGS detection of single nucleotide variants and insertion/deletions were validated by targeted next generation sequencing showing high concordance (96·3%), also for detection of sub-clonal variants and low-frequency TP53 variants. Copy number alteration detection was verified by fluorescent in...

Stem Cells, Genome Editing, and the Path to Translational Medicine.

The derivation of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and the stunning discovery that somatic cells can be reprogrammed into human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) holds the promise to revolutionize biomedical research and regenerative medicine. In this Review, we focus on disorders of the central nervous system and explore how advances in human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) coincide with evolutions in genome engineering and genomic technologies to provide realistic opportunities to tackle some of th...

Whole genome sequencing and mutation rate analysis of trios with paternal dioxin exposure.

2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) or dioxin, is commonly considered the most toxic man-made substance. Dioxin exposure impacts human health and diseases, birth defects and teratogenesis were frequently observed in children of persons who have been exposed to dioxin. However, the impact of dioxin on human mutation rate in trios has not yet been elucidated in the whole genome level. To identify and characterize the genetic alterations in the individuals exposed to dioxin, we perfomed whole genome seq...

Umap and Bismap: quantifying genome and methylome mappability.

Short-read sequencing enables assessment of genetic and biochemical traits of individual genomic regions, such as the location of genetic variation, protein binding and chemical modifications. Every region in a genome assembly has a property called 'mappability', which measures the extent to which it can be uniquely mapped by sequence reads. In regions of lower mappability, estimates of genomic and epigenomic characteristics from sequencing assays are less reliable. These regions have increased susceptibili...

The Clinical Sequencing Evidence-Generating Research Consortium: Integrating Genomic Sequencing in Diverse and Medically Underserved Populations.

The consortium comprises a coordinating center, six funded extramural clinical projects, and an ongoing National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) intramural project. Collectively, these...

Tigmint: correcting assembly errors using linked reads from large molecules.

Genome sequencing yields the sequence of many short snippets of DNA (reads) from a genome. Genome assembly attempts to reconstruct the original genome from which these reads were derived. This task is difficult due to gaps and errors in the sequencing data, repetitive sequence in the underlying genome, and heterozygosity. As a result, assembly errors are common. In the absence of a reference genome, these misassemblies may be identified by comparing the sequencing data to the assembly and looking for discre...

A decade of genome sequencing has revolutionized studies of experimental evolution.

Genome sequencing has revolutionized studies using experimental evolution of microbes because it readily provides comprehensive insight into the genetic bases of adaptation. In this perspective we discuss applications of sequencing-based technologies used to study evolution in microbes, including genomic sequencing of isolated evolved clones and mixed evolved populations, and also the use of sequencing methods to follow the fate of introduced variations, whether neutral barcodes or variants introduced by ge...

Genome Size Estimation and Quantitative Cytogenetics in Insects.

With care, it is possible using flow cytometry to create a precise and accurate estimate of the genome size of an insect that is useful for genomics, genetics, molecular/cell biology, or systematics. Genome size estimation is a useful first step in a complete genome sequencing project. The number of sequencing reads required to produce a given level of coverage depends directly upon the 1C amount of DNA per cell, while an even more critical need is an accurate 1C genome size estimate to compare against the ...

Genome-first findings require precision phenotyping.

Scientists on the Spot: Sequencing the human genome to influence patient healthcare.

Single-nucleotide-resolution sequencing of human N6-methyldeoxyadenosine reveals strand-asymmetric clusters associated with SSBP1 on the mitochondrial genome.

N6-methyldeoxyadenosine (6mA) is a well-characterized DNA modification in prokaryotes but reports on its presence and function in mammals have been controversial. To address this issue, we established the capacity of 6mA-Crosslinking-Exonuclease-sequencing (6mACE-seq) to detect genome-wide 6mA at single-nucleotide-resolution, demonstrating this by accurately mapping 6mA in synthesized DNA and bacterial genomes. Using 6mACE-seq, we generated a human-genome-wide 6mA map that accurately reproduced known 6mA en...
