Comparative and Evolutionary Genomics

Lead Research Organisation: University of Edinburgh
Department Name: The Roslin Institute

Abstract

The aim of this theme is to characterise the genomes of farmed and companion animals, to exploit comparative and evolutionary perspectives to understand the impact of historical selection (natural and artificial) on phenotypes in order to inform future breeding strategies and to use comparative genome analysis to determine genetic factors involved in animal health and wellbeing. The objectives of the theme are: To analyse and annotate the genome sequences of animal species. To exploit within and between species sequence variation to identify disease resistance or susceptibility genes. To identify the signatures of selection from within and between breed variation. To develop the data integration infrastructure underpinning comparative genomics.

Description Of particular note has been The Roslin Institute's role in delivering livestock genome sequences, involving the Institute in international collaborations and close working with industry in both biotechnology and agriculture. The Roslin Institute has provided leadership in the international Swine Genome Sequencing Consortium under whose auspices the pig genome was sequenced, including coordination of the analysis, annotation and publication of the draft pig genome sequence. We provided leadership for the Pig Genome III conference at Hinxton in November 2009 at which the analysis and publication strategy was agreed. In collaboration with others including Illumina Inc. we developed a 60K pig SNP chip which has been used by ourselves, other academic researchers and industry to genotype moe than 40,000 samples; feedback to pig breeders from its use is already taking place as part of industry- funded projects within The Roslin Institute. We have embarked upon the characterisation of the genome and have identified copy number variation in the pig genome using comparative genome hybridisation (a) to arrayed BAC-derived PCR products and (b) long oligonucleotide microarrays and by aligning Illumina paired-end sequence data to the reference genome sequence.

The analysis of avian genomes has been a major strength for many years at The Roslin Institute. We have contributed to the coordination of international consortia to annotate and compare the genomes of the chicken, zebrafinch, turkey and recently the mallard. This involved the functional annotation of genes, the phylogenetic analysis of major innate immune gene families and relating these similarities/differences to adaptations to pathogens. The functional annotation of genes is not only required to name genes and provide gene symbols, but also to facilitate comparisons between species and analysis of gene expression and other functional genomics data, for example, the ChickAtlas project to map gene expression patterns in the chick. A semi-automated system has been built and extended to transfer functional information between avian genomes based on sequence homologies and conservation of gene order. This has been used to annotate genes predicted in the chicken, zebrafinch, turkey and mallard genomes.

Our activities have not been restricted to the pig and to avian species. We are using the Illumina sequencing capacity of the ARK-Genomics Centre for Comparative and Functional Genomics at The Roslin Institute to generate 30-40x coverage of the sheep genome. These data were assembled and analysed in collaboration with the International Sheep Genome Consortium to establish a reference genome sequence for sheep. We also contributed to the international consortia established to sequence the bovine genome and study its diversity through HapMap and the use of the 50k SNP panel. As part of our effort to develop comparative genomics we have contributed to international consortia to characterise within and between species sequence variation including: pigs (60K SNP chip development; sequencing of related suids; re- sequencing breed pools); and cattle (re-sequencing W Africa Bos taurus; and Bos Indus).

Comparison of multiple avian genomes, including the duck, has highlighted adaptive changes that may have been associated with resistance to influenza and other viral pathogens.

Ovodefensins, a new family of egg white defensin related peptides were discovered using proteomic data from multiple avian species. There is species-specific family expansion in the chicken and the recombinant proteins antimicrobial activity has been demonstrated.

Development of the ArkMAP tool. This is a JavaWebStart download-able desktop application to draw comparative genomic and genetic maps, using web-service calls to the ArkDB database system and/or the Ensembl/BioMart system. Orthologous relationships can be extracted for displayed markers/genes and the relevant maps retrieved, re-sized, and re- formatted to facilitate interactive data exploration.
Exploitation Route These genomics resources and associated tools continue to be refined and improved and underpin genetics and genomics research on farmed animal species and application in selective animal breeding.

Description Research undertaken in this project has contributed to the development of tools for genotyping tens of thousands of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in parallel on individual DNA samples from pigs, cattle and chickens. The SNP chips have been developed in collaboration with international academic research partners (pigs, cattle) with technology platform companies (Illumina Inc. Affymetris Inc.) and with breeding companies (chickens). The international pig SNP consortium of which Roslin was a member were awarded the "Excellence in Technology Transfer" by the (US) Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer in August 2011.

PI Contribution I provided my detailed knowledge of the Swine Genome Sequencing Consortium's project that produced the draft pig reference genome sequence (Sscrofa10.2) as described by Groenen et al. 2012. Pig genomes provide insight into porcine demography and evolution. Nature 491: 393-398 and the pig physical mapping project as described by Humphray et al. 2007. A high utility integrated map of the pig genome. Genome Biology 8:R139. My research team had also established the bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) library resource described by Anderson et al. 2000. A large fragment porcine genomic library resource in a BAC vector. Mammalian Genome 11, 811-814. BAC clones from this library were used as probes for fluorescent in situ hybridisation (FISH) experiments in this collaborative project. My knowledge of the pig physical mapping and pig genome sequencing projects was critical in interpreting the anomalous and unexpected results from the initial FISH experiments.
Collaborator Contribution This collaboration was initiated and led by Prof Darren Griffin and colleagues at the University of Kent. In addition to leading the collaboration the Kent team delivered the expertise in cytogenetics analysis. JSR Genetics provided animal materials and phenotypes. Cytocell Ltd provided technical expertise and the Chromoprobe Multiprobe System. The work was funded by an Innovate UK Knowledge Transfer Partnership to Prof Darren Griffin and Cytocell Ltd.
Impact The project has demonstrated that FISH-based translocation screening is a powerful and reliable approach to screening for chromosomal translocation that can have adverse effects on fertility. The device described by O'Connor et al. (see below) is now a commercial product marketed by Cytocell Ltd. The project results have been useful if anchoring the new improved pig reference genome sequence to chromosomes and confirming the order and orientation for each chromosomal sequence. The results of the study have been published by O'Connor et al. Isolation of subtelomeric sequences of porcine chromosomes for translocation screening reveals errors in the pig genome assembly. Animal Genetics (in press). The research undertaken by Rebecca O'Connor is a major component of her PhD research studies.

PI Contribution I organised the 6th International chick meeting, Edinburgh (2011) and also formed at that event the International Avian RNA-Seq Consortium. The purpose was to collaborate with national and international labs to pool RNA-seq data for the chicken (and other avian genomes). This data would provide a rich source of data for gene annotation of the chicken genome. This was used subsequently to annotate the chicken genes by the ENSEMBL gene annotation team, as part of our BBSRC funded work. We provided the organisation, advice for submission of data, provided early storage of data, and we provided all our data (20+ libraries).
Collaborator Contribution Many labs joined (21+) and one output was a joint publication and yearly updates to chicken genome.

PI Contribution The Roslin Institute partner in the Swine Genome Sequencing Consortium contributed to the leadership of the pig genome sequencing project, coordination of analysis and annotation and writing the genome paper. On-going commitments to the SGSC include efforts to improve the reference genome sequence and assembly, including generating additional genome sequence data and ancillary sequence data for annotation.
Collaborator Contribution The other partners in the SGSC have contributed in multiple roles, including genome sequencing and analysis. The roles of each partner are recorded in the pig genome sequence paper as published in Nature in 2012 (Groenen et al. 2012. Nature 491: 393-398)
Impact The primary output from this collaborative partnership was the publication of the draft reference genome sequence of the pig (Sus scrofa) in Nature in November 2012. Groenen et al. 2012. Nature 491: 393-398 and associated companion papers. The genome sequence data are accessible in the public DNA sequence repositories and the annotated sequence can be accessed in the three main genome browsers (Ensembl, NCBI, UCSC). The SGSC has a continuing interest in improving the reference genome sequence. However, this task is mainly being pursued by the founding core partners.
