Microbiome Analysis - [email protected]

Microbiome Analysis from sample to data MGL Users Group June 18, 2014 Assaying Microbial Content One of the most common approaches is to sequence 16S ribosomal RNA amplicons. Another option is shotgun sequencing of the community, assembling the sequences, and assigning the identified genes to metabolic pathways. If a finer level of detail is required, most often 16S is sequenced followed by generalized sequencing for a finer species resolution (or validation). 16S rRNA Sequencing Databases of all known 16S sequences have been

compiled (Silva, GreenGenes, others). Either targeted amplicons of variable regions or whole 16S sequencing. Isolate gDNA, PCR amplify using universal 16S primers. imers Primer pair 1 Primer pair 2 Primer pair 3 16S rRNA Sequencing Shear amplicon using Covaris focused acoustics The Microbiome Library Libraries have adaptor sequences at both ends used for PCR and sequencing priming. P1 is the universal Forward primer sequence.

P2 has an embedded barcode sequence. Between the two adapter ends is the DNA which will be sequenced from the P1 forward, and Barcode regions (green arrows). Note: Adapter sequences DIFFER from Illumina if other preparations are to be adapted to this platform. Bead Preparation from Libraries The pool of libraries is subjected to emulsion PCR to populate beads. Oil micro-reactors are titrated such that each bead is populated by a single template. Unpopulated beads are removed in subsequent cleanup. 16S rRNA Sequencing Nick translate Amplify Quantitate

Bead Preparation from Libraries Slide Deposition of enriched beads Beads are flowed into, and then adhered to, the FlowChip lanes. Optimum density is 160 million beads per lane. 16S rRNA Sequencing ABI SOLiD 5500xl 16S rRNA Sequencing The resulting library is sequenced. We do 75 bp on one end (Exact Call Chemistry; most commonly done on a long-read platform [454, MiSeq, etc.]).

We generate millions of reads (most commonly generate thousands). Reads are aligned to the database of 16S sequences to the possible level of resolution. We keep only uniquely aligned reads. Data Analysis - OTUs Sequences are often reported in OTUs (Operational Taxonomic Units) Due to high levels of identity in related 16S sequences, typically some identity threshold is applied and similar sequences are collapsed into OTU sequences (commonly at 97% identity) As a result, the level of taxonomic resolution for individual OTU sequences can vary, even at the same identity threshold.

Compare / clean data

Assign resolve taxonomy, describe distribution Compare populations across conditions, etc. (Statistical digging) Alternative approach using short reads Amplify 16S or amplicon as normal. Randomly shear to construct a typical short read library comprising random starts/ends. Generate millions of reads. Assign reads that only map unambiguously to OTUs using short read aligners. Analyze normally from OTU populations. A more wasteful approach, but in practice performs just as well. Utilizes higher throughput instruments vs lower capacity long-read platforms.
