      last speaker before lunch on last day. talking about low input MG. bridge the gap between single cell and MG. 1 cell = 1fantogram, >1ng for MG DNA. low input MG is the region in the middle ~~100fg to 100picograms Some environmental samples are low in microbial biomass so the levels of DNA are low.

      how do we classify bacterial species. obviously cant use sexual reproduction species concept. now a days we tend to use a polyphasic approach to include multiple pheno/genotype to group "similar" cells into a species group. but infact ~85% of species there is sufficient recombination to allow the true sexual reproduction definition of the biological species classification. This work has shown that sequence identity does NOT nessasarily deliniate species. i.e. some bacterial "species" have upto 30% sequence divergence, but are still the same biological species and capable of recombination within species.

      from QingTao (where the beer comes from :-) ) Raman-activated single cell genomics - imaging data combined with genomics data = Ramanome. Raman Spectra gives indication of particular chemical composition of cell, the theory is that particular cellular state has a specific spectral profile that can be identified and used to isolate cells of interest. Can be used to do RWAS (raman wide association studies) spectral imaging of raman stuff can be done in hours, so much faster than seq. RAMDB - Ren Lh Su XQ etal.

      protein families. used in metagenomics via: CheckM, IGM, MEGAN, MG-RAST, WebMGA, FANTOM, InterProScan. so What make virus protein families different? have mostly polyproteins, which can reshuffle to create different multi-domain proteins. They have a faster evolution than many cellular genomes, which means while they maintain structural similarities they often have very differnt nucleotide sequence in the genes.

    1. Genome Editing via CRISPR-Cas9 Mediated Homology-independent Targeted Integration

      not going to talk about pigs today. Homology Independant Targeted Intergration (HITI). methodology to help select for specific inserts of a specified DNA insert in the correct orientation at a specific genomic loci. based on non-homologuos End repair pathway, which works in all stages of cell cycle (unlike other pathways which are only active in cell dividion stages of cell cycle). Used for knock-in experiments. shown to work in rat model using retinal gene knockin. i.e. a rat strain with 1.8kb deletion in retinal gene, they can show recovery of full vision with knockin of the missing exon 1.8kb fragment using this method.

    2. Effect of Chromatin Structure on CRISPR/Cas9-based Genome and Epigenome Editing

      using pig models of human disease. and possible future xenotransplantation organs. Intro to CAS9 CRISPR editiing. chromotin structure has effect on specificity of CRISPR. Open structure has higher specificty, so is a better target. Tested some drugs to open the chromotin structure. Most of these drugs also effect methylation and cell proliferatoin, so had to use low conc of drugs to test effect on genome editing specificty of crispr. Also shown that the gRNA structure is also important for efficacy, so making sure the gRNA doesn't form high energy secondary structures (hairpin loops), increases efficacy.

      Where Richard see's genomics taking us. historical technology overview. combination of long read with short data is opening up a new era of discovery in genomics. Lake Malawi Cichlids - massive radiation of cichlids species happened within the 1million years. >500 soeices in different lakes in same geographic region. so far have sequenced 80 species, Entire radiation of species have only slightly more variation between genetics than would expected within species, i.e. ~0.2% Looking to use to define phenotype-genotype relations. Genome sequences show evidence that there may have been horizontal gene flow between species. backing up claims of horizontal gene transfer between humans and denisovian and neanderthals. Specieation may preceed genetic separation rather than vice versa. Malawi cichlid project was made possible by G10K doing 1 fish first giving a suitable genetic map. The G10K project is ready for the next big push, with 100's this year and 1000's of genomes in 2017. The hangover from sequencing the "reference genome" is that we kind of expect a single sequence for an organism, but the reality is that diploid genomes have 2 slightly different genomes. (and to a lesser extent each individual cell has its own genome,) this hetrozygosity needs to be taken into account when doing genome assembly. Long read data helps with this, it can provide information on hetrozygosity. using a phaser like "WhatsHap" you can align pacbio reads to hi-fidelity illumin contigs (i.e. an assembly that doesn't collapse hetrozygous regions) the long reads can then idntify those short contigs as individual hapoltypes. G10K aims to cover all 75 orders of fish within the next year.

      Slightly jetlagged. First action on stage; to destroy the decorations :-D PGD and PGS - intro & controversy PGD - Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis. The ability to select the embryo before implantation, therefore ensuring no (known) diseases, particularly important for carriers of recessive disease. historically extracting cells from invitro fertilised eggs anywhere from day1 to day6. Use of arrayCGH from a single cell you can detect large scale chromosomeal abnoralities (trisomy etc) PGS-contreversy was that non sequencing methods of testing dont show the full story. ESHRE have set up an RCT case control study to hopefully rectify this. Chromosomal mosaicism at blastocyst stage causes an obvious problem when doing bio-opsy! if 1in 5 cells show different chromosomal it may not give relevant results. ending with ethical dilemas 17 different companies offering Expanded carrier screening of parents, in total >1100 possible things to be screened for, but only 9 of those were the same thing being screened in all 17 tests! i.e. each company offers a different set of screens. Aim is to offer free (in UK, paid by NHS) NGS seq of parents. Looking at using CRISPR to eliminate disease from genome. Ethical issues of that need to be thought about. already certain places allow selection of child based on Sex, but its the same principal to select the exact traits the parents wants for their child! Conclusions. Preconception carrier screening is becoming the norm. PGS for IVF Everyone will being born will soon already have the genome sequenced before they are even born.

    5. Multiple Genomes andMultiple Environments in EarlyLife Interact to Influence the Developmental Trajectories of Children

      Risk of developmental delay is not even throughout the world. Environmental factors, including social, family, economic and physical environment all effect a childs development. Stress produces hormones that are toxic to brain development. The Raine Study. many areas of research carried out, one in particular was the study of stressful events during pregnancy. it showed 1 or 2 stressful events during preg didn't show any significant effect of development by age 14, but 3 or more did show negative effect. Mechanisms for this involved gene-environment interactions. e.g. epigenetics. Effects during pregnancy on the epigenome could effect not only mother and unborn child, but also the DNA within the feotus that will become the sperm/egg for the granchild, therefore effecting the next generation. The effect of the microbiome can also be seen on child development. maternal diet can effect the microbiome, which in term can effect the child, both during pregnancy and during breastfeeding stage. mouse study shows that breastfeeding mitigates certain genetic predispositions to weight gain. Conclusion - there are multiple genomes and multiple env factors that need to be teased apart to help understanding of child development. Early identification of risk and targeted intervention will be the most effective way to mitigate possible detremental effects.

      bio-reactors are very similar to various guts, but one major difference is the build-up of intermediary compounds (in particular Ammonia, NH3) , which in organisms are often incorporated into the host or excreted, but in reactors can build up and cause instability of the system.
