The relationship between transposable elements and ecological niches in the Greater Cape Floristic Region: A study on the genus Pteronia (Asteraceae)

Non-coding repetitive DNA (repeatome) is an active part of the nuclear genome, involved in its structure, evolution and function. It is dominated by transposable elements (TEs) and satellite DNA and is prone to the most rapid changes over time. The TEs activity presumably causes the global genome reorganization and may play an adaptive or regulatory role in response to environmental challenges.

Target enrichment v rostlinné systematice aneb HybSeq kurz 2022

Napsal uživatel vojta dne Pá, 06/03/2022 - 11:42

Praktický kurz fylogenomických metod se zaměřením na NGS metodu Hyb-Seq. Metoda Hyb-Seq kombinuje cílené obohacení a tzv. mělké sekvenování genomu. V rámci kurzu budou probrány základy i nejnovějších poznatky v oblasti Hyb-Seq (návrh sond, laboratorní postup, analýza dat). Součástí kurzu je i práce s daty a jejich praktické analýzy různými přístupy, od primárních dat po konstrukci evolučních stromů koalescenčními a dalšími metodami. V laboratorní části kurzu budou připravovány a obohacovány NGS knihovny s využitím sonikátoru.

Relative performance of customized and universal probe sets in target enrichment: A case study in subtribe Malinae

Custom probe design for target enrichment in phylogenetics is tedious and often hinders broader phylogenetic synthesis. The universal angiosperm probe set Angiosperms353 may be the solution. Here, we test the relative performance of Angiosperms353 on the Rosaceae subtribe Malinae in comparison with custom probes that we specifically designed for this clade. We then address the impact of bioinformatically altering the performance of Angiosperms353 by replacing the original probe sequences with orthologs extracted from the Malus domestica genome.

HybSeq course 2020

Napsal uživatel vojta dne Čt, 12/19/2019 - 21:25

Intensive 4-days (5th day is not compulsory, but is open for any discussion, if there would be interest) course to learn all theory about HybSeq and practically learn how to analyze HybSeq data, how to solve all problems, and how to evaluate differences among gene trees. Important part is enough time to discuss everything, including practical problems and projects of individual participants.

Phylogenetic marker development for target enrichment from transcriptome and genome skim data: the pipeline and its application in southern African Oxalis (Oxalidaceae)

Phylogenetics benefits from using a large number of putatively independent nuclear loci and their combination with other sources of information, such as the plastid and mitochondrial genomes. To facilitate the selection of orthologous low-copy nuclear (LCN) loci for phylogenetics in non-model organisms, we created an automated and interactive script to select hundreds of LCN loci by a comparison between transcriptome and genome skim data. We used our script to obtain LCN genes for southern African Oxalis (Oxalidaceae), a speciose plant lineage in the Greater Cape Floristic Region.
