6 Human Chromosomes Contain DNA 22 pairs of autosomes + sex-chromosomes (X and Y) + mitochondrial genome Contain functional units (genes) and other DNA Human genome sequence is available as a reference, as a result of the Human Genome Project A significant amount of inter-individual variation exists

7 Chromosomes are sets of continuously linked genetic loci Example: Integrated map of chromosome 5 from the International HapMap Project,

8 Genetic Variation Some DNA loci vary among individuals Linked genetic loci are inherited non-independently Loci may change with time (mutation, selection, genetic drift) Some DNA changes lead to quantitative changes in RNA expression and to quantitative or qualitative changes in protein production Some genetic changes, even small, may lead to disease A large amount of natural variation occurs in healthy individuals, i.e., many changes are neutral Loci genetically linked to the disease-causing locus can be used as genetic markers to search for the disease locus SNP1SNP2 Sequence variation AAAC/TGGCTA There are many types of DNA variation, e.g. Microsatellite repeats …AATG AATG AATG AATG…

9 Polymorphic Site A locus with common DNA variation  2 alleles in a population Shows difference in DNA sequence among individuals In most definitions: the most common allele with frequency < 99%, or minor allele frequency (MAF)  1%, or MAF  2%, or at least two alleles have frequencies  1%. A rare allele that occurs in <1% of the population is usually non considered a polymorphic site.  90%of sequence variation among individuals is due to common variation (MAF  1%, ); 10% are rare variants Not all disease-predisposing variants are common

F1 Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium Egg Sperm P AA =p 2 P AB =2pqP BB =q 2 Under Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, the relative genotype frequencies are: F1: (p+q ) 2 Departures can be characterized by disequilibrium In autosomal genes, and in absence of disturbing influences, this proportion is maintained through all subsequent generations.

13 Linkage Disequilibrium D=p A1B1 -p A1 p B1 D = Linkage disequilibrium coefficient Coefficient of association Locus A Locus B A1 B1 A2 B2 Associations among alleles at different loci D’=D/|D| max |D| max = | min(p A1 p B2, p A2 p B1 )| -1  D’  1 r 2 =D 2 /(p A1 p A2 p B1 p B2 ) Normalized disequilibrium coefficient Squared Correlation coefficient Also ranges from 0 to 1 1 – absolute or perfect linkage; 0.8 is the cutoff often used Extended to multiallelic markers

16 Genome SNP Variation Size of human genome  3.2  10 9 bp 99.9% identical 9-10 mln SNPs may have MAF  5%  30,000 genes Phase I (published in 2005) 931,340 SNPs passed quality control 1 SNP / 3000 bp 11,500 nsSNP 10 ENCODE regions, 500 kb each 17,944 SNPs 1 SNP / 279 bp Phase II (published in 2007) Consensus data set: 3,107,620 SNPs, QC+ in all panels, polymorphic in  1 panel 1 SNP / 875bp 25-30% of all SNPs with MAF  5% HapMap SNP Density Coverage The cumulative # of non-redundant SNPs is shown as a solid line, the # of SNPs validated by genotyping as a dotted line, and double-hit status as a dashed line.

17 HapMap Phase II

18 21,177 SNPs from Phase I that had ambiguous position or other low reliability feature were not included in Phase II Chimpanzee, rhesus macaque used for comparisons and to infer ancestral states of SNPs 3,107,620 SNPs, QC+ in all panels, polymorphic in  1 panel 1 SNP / 875bp 1.14 SNP/kb 25-30% of all SNPs with MAF  5% 98.6% of the genome is within 5 kb of the nearest polymorphic SNP Better representation of rare variation/ SNPs with MAF  1% Phase II marker data capture overwhelming majority of genome SNP variation, mean r 2 of for different populations



21 SNP Differences among Individuals Far Exceed Differences among Populations Phase 1: Autosomes: Across the 1 million SNPs genotyped, only 11 have fixed differences between CEU and YRI, 21 between CEU and CHB/JPT, and 5 between YRI and CHB/JPT. X chromosome 123 SNPs were completely differentiated between YRI and CHB/JPT, but only 2 between CEU and YRI and 1 between CEU and CHB/JPT.

22 Importance of Understanding Patterns of Human Genetic Variation Without knowing the patterns of correlation, one would need to analyze millions of SNPs and other polymorphisms in the genome Alleles at nearby loci occur non-independently Knowledge about correlations among polymorphisms allows to us significantly reduce the number of genetic tests, while surveying extensively for variation patterns Patterns of correlation are complex Need to know local patters of genetic variation rather than simply use SNPs at regular intervals

23 Patil et al. 2001, Blocks of Limited Haplotype Diversity Revealed by High- Resolution Scanning of Human Chromosome 21. Science 294(5547): Genome regions decomposed into discrete haplotype blocks, which capture similarity in haplotype organization Haplotype Maps of the Human Genome

24 Haplotype Maps Generated by The International HapMap Project 3 steps of the HapMap construction (a) SNPs are identified in DNA samples from multiple individuals. (b) Adjacent SNPs that are inherited together are compiled into haplotypes. (c)"Tag" SNPs are identified within haplotypes that uniquely describe those haplotypes.

25 Haplotype Maps of the Human Genome Haplotypes were inferred for the HapMap project from trios data and from unrelated individuals using Phase (Stephens 01; Stephens and Donnely 03) Helmuth 2001, Science 293: Find correlations among groups of SNPs

26 Haplotype Block Partition Results for Three Populations Population Blocks Average size, kb * Required SNPs African-American 235, ,886 European-American 109, ,960 Han Chinese 89, ,809 * Average distance spanned by segregating sites in each block. Minimum number of SNPs required to distinguish common haplotype patterns with frequencies of 5% or higher. Hinds et al Science 1,586,383 (SNPs) genotyped in 71 Americans of European, African, and Asian ancestry

27 Hinds et al 2005 Extended LD bin and haplotype block structure around the CFTR gene. LD bins, where each bin has at least one SNP with r 2 > 0.8 with every other SNP, are depicted as light horizontal bars, with the positions of constituent SNPs indicated by vertical tick marks as well as the extreme ends of the bars. Isolated SNPs are indicated by plain tick marks. Haplotype blocks, within which at least 80% of observed haplotypes could be grouped into common patterns with frequencies of at least 5%, are depicted as dark horizontal bars. Unlike haplotype blocks that are by design sequential and nonoverlapping, SNPs in one LD bin can be interdigitated with SNPs in multiple other overlapping bins Population differences in local bin structure Differences in allele and haplotype frequencies “Although analysis panels are characterized both by different haplotype frequencies and, to some extent, different combinations of alleles, both common and rare haplotypes are often shared across populations” ( The Int. HapMap Project, Nature, 2005)

28 Amount of Captured Sequence Variation in HapMap Phase II For common variants (MAF  0.05) the mean maximum r 2 of any SNP to a typed one is 0.90 in YRI, 0.96 in CEU and 0.95 in CHB/JPT million SNPs capture all common Phase II SNPs with r 2  0.8 in YRI. Very common SNPs with MAF  0.25 are captured extremely well (mean maximum r 2 of 0.93 in YRI to 0.97 in CEU) Rarer SNPs with MAF<0.05 are less well covered (mean maximum r 2 of 0.74 in CHB/JPT to 0.76 in YRI).

29 Amount of Captured Sequence Variation in HapMap Phase II Additional tag SNPs are unlikely to capture large groups of additional SNPs Can use to phase new data using HapMap haplotype information, missing data imputation


31 DNA Chips and Resequencing: High-through-put Analysis of Sequence Variation An easy way to access genome-wide variation Both Affymetrix and Illumina DNA chips contain representative SNP and CNV probes Affymetrix GeneChip 6.0: 1.8 million markers for genetic variation, including 906,000 SNPs and 946,000 copy number probes. Illumina 1M Bead Chip and 1M-duo Bead Chip: ~950,000 genome-spanning tag SNPs; ~100,000 additional non-HapMap SNPs, >565,000 SNPs in and near coding regions such as nsSNPs, promoter regions, 3’ and 5’ UTRs; dense coverage in ADME and MHC regions. ~260,000 markers located in novel and reported copy number polymorphic regions. Sequenom mass arrays (based on Maldi-TOF)

32 Common Ancestry and Segmental Sharing Relatedness High Med Low Homozygocity

33 Recombination Hotspots 32,996 recombination hotspots 60% of genome recombination, 6% sequence

34 Recombination and tagSNPs Recombination hotspots are frequently insufficient to break down allelic associations Common haplotypes often span recombination hotspots 0.5-1% of SNPs are untaggable: no SNPs with r 2  0.2 within 100 kb Untaggable SNPs are not in segmental duplications They often are in recombination hotspots; some may be due to genealogical structure, mutation hotspots, or gene conversion

35 Demographic History of Human Populations Genealogical History and Allelic Associations The genealogy for the 13 haplotypes observed in a 40-kb region of Chromosome 1 (between SNPs rs and rs932087) where there is no evidence for recombination. Location of polymorphic mutations is indicated by circles. Relative frequency of each haplotype in the sample from each of the three panels (with white indicating 0% and black indicating 100%). The dotted line in the genealogy indicates a branch of the tree that is not present in the CEU sample and whose removal results in perfect association between SNPs rs and rs Can track genealogical history McVean et al., PLoS Genetics 1:e54 Complex patterns of stochastic mutation, recombination, selection, genetic drift in evolutionary history shape the patterns of genome variation

43 PCR RESEQUENCING DATA “The sequence-based variant calls were generated by tiling with PCR primer sets spaced approximately 800 bases apart across the ENCODE 3 regions. Following filtering low-quality reads the data were analyzed with SNP Detector version 3, for polymorphic site discovery and individual genotype calling. Various QC filters were then applied. Specifically, we filtered out PCR amplicons with too many SNPs, and SNPs with discordant allele calls in mutliple amplicons. “ Also filtered out were SNPs with low completeness in samples, or with too many conflicting genotype calls in two different strands. “In the QC+ data set, …filtered out samples which had low completeness, and filtered out SNPs with low call rate in each population (<80%) and not in HWE (p<0.001). In the QC+ data set, the overall false positive rate is ~3.2%, based on a limited number of validation assays.”
