Authors: Alison Devault, Ph.D. (Daicel Arbor Biosciences) 

With the recent launch of multiple novel high-throughput sequencing (HTS) platforms, the landscape of HTS workflow options is richer than ever before. Choosing a targeted sequencing solution that is compatible with sequencing on any current or future HTS platform is important for maximizing the utility of a given assay. The myBaits® hybridization capture system from Daicel Arbor Biosciences is by design universally compatible with virtually any HTS workflow, whether short- or long-read. With highly versatile custom probe design algorithms and platform-agnostic protocol options, myBaits is a robust solution for achieving any DNA or RNA targeted sequencing need for any species or sample type. In this poster, we highlight the technical features of myBaits that permit its unique versatility in the modern HTS landscape, including data examples demonstrating its universal application with both short- and long-read HTS platforms relevant to the plant and animal genomics community.

Authors: Linda Barthel, Jake Enk, Tina Lan, Benjamin Steil (Daicel Arbor Biosciences) 

Abstract: In situ hybridization (ISH) probes built from pools of synthetic single-stranded oligonucleotides are more specific and versatile than probes derived from BACs and other biological sources. The myTags® Custom ISH probe system from Daicel Arbor Biosciences utilizes a sophisticated in silico design process to identify and eliminate repetitive and other nonspecific elements that BAC-derived probes typically retain. Here we demonstrate the high specificity of customized myTags probe sets compared to BAC-derived alternatives, and outline design and experimental recommendations key to plant and animal genomics applications where enhanced specificity and versatility is critical. Combined with flexible synthesis and reporter labeling configurations, myTags represents an ideal and cost-effective toolset for a wide variety of genomics applications including chromosome painting and identification, haplotyping, and 3D/4D spatial genomics analysis.

As genome resources for wheat expand at a rapid pace, it is important to update targeted sequencing tools to incorporate improved sequence assemblies and regions of previously unknown significance. Here we present a regulatory region NGS hybridization capture panel developed for hexaploid and tetraploid wheat. We used the upstream ~2 kbp of each annotated gene in the most up-to-date Chinese Spring wheat genome assembly as the primary target source, supplemented with homologous sequences from a draft assembly of tetraploid Kronos wheat as well as regions of observed open chromatin state identified with ATACseq. To improve specificity compared to similar legacy designs, candidate repetitive sequences were aggressively filtered using a combination of cross-alignment clustering, TREP19 affinity filtration, and kmer frequency capping. Once converted to candidate probes, these were once again filtered for specificity using a standard design pipeline, resulting in a final target space of ~175 Mbp relative to the IWGSC RefSeq v1.0 genome. Test captures using the probe set on both hexaploid and tetraploid wheat exhibit excellent coverage of the target with significantly improved specificity compared to captures performed using legacy probe designs. Captures of 24 lines from the Kronos TILLING population (EMS-induced mutations) detected an average of ~3300 mutations per line (~5 million predicted mutations in the complete TILLING population of 1500 lines). This probe set is available through Daicel Arbor Biosciences as either a stand-alone capture kit or a full service option from library prep through secondary bioinformatics analysis.

Number PO0409

Authors: Brian Brunelle, Alison Devault, Jacob Enk and Tina Lan, Daicel Arbor Biosciences, Ann Arbor, MI 

The detection of pathogenic variants and pathobiome profiling in plant and animal samples using next-generation sequencing (NGS) is often impeded by the dominant host/background DNA and/or RNA, necessitating extremely deep total NGS in order to accurately resolve genomes/genes of interest or to fully characterize community members. Targeted NGS methods can dramatically reduce the overall costs of sequencing and data analysis per sample. Of the available targeted NGS methods, hybridization capture is the best technique for comprehensive, low-bias, and cost-effective genome or community sequencing of viruses and bacteria from complex samples. Here we review the principles of hybridization capture for microbial sequencing applications, and highlight several peer-reviewed studies relevant to the plant and animal research community, powered by efficient myBaits® target capture kits.

Though the first DNA sequences from an extinct organism were first extracted 30 years ago, the revolution in sequencing technology has recently allowed for the retrieval and characterization of ancient organisms dating back more than 50,000 years. This new capability has been used to address questions related to admixture, phylogenetic inference, and evolution writ large. This session will attract leading experts in the use of ancient DNA to discuss their recent findings related to both the optimization of methodology, and specific case studies pertaining to humans, plants, and animals.

Wednesday, March 25, 2020 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT



Even as sequencing costs decline, high-depth sequencing of the 7-17 Gbp wheat genome remains cost-prohibitive.  With the myBaits Expert Wheat Exome Panel, Daicel Arbor Biosciences provides the wheat research and breeding community a simple tool that reduces focused sequencing of the wheat high-confidence exome by more than an order of magnitude compared to whole genome sequencing. Based on the IWGSC RefSeq v1.0 reference genome, with a total target space of >200Mb, this is the most up-to-date panel currently available on the market for complete wheat exome sequencing.

In this webinar, Dr. Jacob Enk (R&D Manager for NGS at Daicel Arbor Biosciences) will present the latest performance developments of the Wheat Exome Panel, including its utility for hexaploid, tetraploid, and diploid cultivars of wheat, as well as upcoming complementary tools for targeted sequencing of exome-wide promoters and new exons as they are continually updated in RefSeq.

The myBaits Expert Wheat Exome Panel is available for immediate shipment from Daicel Arbor Biosciences, and can also be purchased as part of full-service NGS packages for library preparation, enrichment, sequencing and bioinformatics analysis. IWGSC members receive special discounted rates on all Wheat Exome kits and services.
