    • We report the generation and analysis of functional data from multiple, diverse experiments performed on a targeted 1% of the human genome as part of the pilot phase of the ENCODE Project. These data have been further integrated and augmented by a number of evolutionary and computational analyses. Together, our results advance the collective knowledge about human genome function in several major areas. First, our studies provide convincing evidence that the genome is pervasively transcribed, such that the majority of its bases can be found in primary transcripts, including non-protein-coding transcripts, and those that extensively overlap one another. Second, systematic examination of transcriptional regulation has yielded new understanding about transcription start sites, including their relationship to specific regulatory sequences and features of chromatin accessibility and histone modification. Third, a more sophisticated view of chromatin structure has emerged, including its inter-relationship with DNA replication and transcriptional regulation. Finally, integration of these new sources of information, in particular with respect to mammalian evolution based on inter- and intra-species sequence comparisons, has yielded new mechanistic and evolutionary insights concerning the functional landscape of the human genome. Together, these studies are defining a path for pursuit of a more comprehensive characterization of human genome function.

  • Evolution of genes and genomes on the Drosophila phylogeny.
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: Nature. - 0028-0836 .- 1476-4687. ; 450:7167, s. 203-218

    • Comparative analysis of multiple genomes in a phylogenetic framework dramatically improves the precision and sensitivity of evolutionary inference, producing more robust results than single-genome analyses can provide. The genomes of 12 Drosophila species, ten of which are presented here for the first time (sechellia, simulans, yakuba, erecta, ananassae, persimilis, willistoni, mojavensis, virilis and grimshawi), illustrate how rates and patterns of sequence divergence across taxa can illuminate evolutionary processes on a genomic scale. These genome sequences augment the formidable genetic tools that have made Drosophila melanogaster a pre-eminent model for animal genetics, and will further catalyse fundamental research on mechanisms of development, cell biology, genetics, disease, neurobiology, behaviour, physiology and evolution. Despite remarkable similarities among these Drosophila species, we identified many putatively non-neutral changes in protein-coding genes, non-coding RNA genes, and cis-regulatory regions. These may prove to underlie differences in the ecology and behaviour of these diverse species.

  • Computational problems in evolution : Multiple alignment, genome rearrangements, and tree reconstruction
  • 2006
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Reconstructing the evolutionary history of a set of species is a fundamental problem in biology. This thesis concerns computational problems that arise in different settings and stages of phylogenetic tree reconstruction, but also in other contexts. The contributions include: • A new distance-based tree reconstruction method with optimal reconstruction radius and optimal runtime complexity. Included in the result is a greatly simplified proof that the NJ algorithm also has optimal reconstruction radius. (co-author Jens Lagergren) • NP-hardness results for the most common variations of Multiple Alignment. In particular, it is shown that SP-score, Star Alignment, and Tree Alignment, are NP hard for all metric symbol distances over all binary or larger alphabets. • A 1.375-approximation algorithm for Sorting By Transpositions (SBT). SBT is the problem of sorting a permutation using as few block-transpositions as possible. The complexity of this problem is still open and it was a ten-year-old open problem to improve the best known 1.5-approximation ratio. The 1.375-approximation algorithm is based on a new upper bound on the diameter of 3-permutations. Moreover, a new lower bound on the transposition diameter of the symmetric group is presented and the exact transposition diameter of simple permutations is determined. (co-author Tzvika Hartman) • Approximation, fixed-parameter tractable, and fast heuristic algorithms for two variants of the Ancestral Maximum Likelihood (AML) problem: when the phylogenetic tree is known and when it is unknown. AML is the problem of reconstructing the most likely genetic sequences of extinct ancestors along with the most likely mutation probabilities on the edges, given the phylogenetic tree and sequences at the leafs. (co-author Tamir Tuller) • An algorithm for computing the number of mutational events between aligned DNA sequences which is several hundred times faster than the famous Phylip packages. Since pairwise distance estimation is a bottleneck in distance-based phylogeny reconstruction, the new algorithm improves the overall running time of many distancebased methods by a factor of several hundred.

  • BUTTERFLY: addressing the pooled amplification paradox with unique molecular identifiers in single-cell RNA-seq
  • 2021
  • Ingår i: Genome Biology. - 1474-7596. ; 22:1
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The incorporation of unique molecular identifiers (UMIs) in single-cell RNA-seq assays makes possible the identification of duplicated molecules, thereby facilitating the counting of distinct molecules from sequenced reads. However, we show that the naïve removal of duplicates can lead to a bias due to a “pooled amplification paradox,” and we propose an improved quantification method based on unseen species modeling. Our correction called BUTTERFLY uses a zero truncated negative binomial estimator implemented in the kallisto bustools workflow. We demonstrate its efficacy across cell types and genes and show that in some cases it can invert the relative abundance of genes.

  • Sequence and comparative analysis of the chicken genome provide unique perspectives on vertebrate evolution
  • 2004
  • Ingår i: Nature. - 0028-0836 .- 1476-4687. ; 432:7018, s. 695-716
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • We present here a draft genome sequence of the red jungle fowl, Gallus gallus. Because the chicken is a modern descendant of the dinosaurs and the first non-mammalian amniote to have its genome sequenced, the draft sequence of its genome--composed of approximately one billion base pairs of sequence and an estimated 20,000-23,000 genes--provides a new perspective on vertebrate genome evolution, while also improving the annotation of mammalian genomes. For example, the evolutionary distance between chicken and human provides high specificity in detecting functional elements, both non-coding and coding. Notably, many conserved non-coding sequences are far from genes and cannot be assigned to defined functional classes. In coding regions the evolutionary dynamics of protein domains and orthologous groups illustrate processes that distinguish the lineages leading to birds and mammals. The distinctive properties of avian microchromosomes, together with the inferred patterns of conserved synteny, provide additional insights into vertebrate chromosome architecture.

  • Analyses of deep mammalian sequence alignments and constraint predictions for 1% of the human genome
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: Genome Research. - 1088-9051 .- 1549-5469. ; 17:6, s. 760-774
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • A key component of the ongoing ENCODE project involves rigorous comparative sequence analyses for the initially targeted 1% of the human genome. Here, we present orthologous sequence generation, alignment, and evolutionary constraint analyses of 23 mammalian species for all ENCODE targets. Alignments were generated using four different methods; comparisons of these methods reveal large-scale consistency but substantial differences in terms of small genomic rearrangements, sensitivity (sequence coverage), and specificity (alignment accuracy). We describe the quantitative and qualitative trade-offs concomitant with alignment method choice and the levels of technical error that need to be accounted for in applications that require multisequence alignments. Using the generated alignments, we identified constrained regions using three different methods. While the different constraint-detecting methods are in general agreement, there are important discrepancies relating to both the underlying alignments and the specific algorithms. However, by integrating the results across the alignments and constraint-detecting methods, we produced constraint annotations that were found to be robust based on multiple independent measures. Analyses of these annotations illustrate that most classes of experimentally annotated functional elements are enriched for constrained sequences; however, large portions of each class (with the exception of protein-coding sequences) do not overlap constrained regions. The latter elements might not be under primary sequence constraint, might not be constrained across all mammals, or might have expendable molecular functions. Conversely, 40% of the constrained sequences do not overlap any of the functional elements that have been experimentally identified. Together, these findings demonstrate and quantify how many genomic functional elements await basic molecular characterization.
