1 Potentials and limits of haplotype trees in exploring population structure and pathogenicity of mutations Hans-Jürgen Bandelt (Hamburg) 17. Jahrestagung der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Humangenetik Heidelberg, 08.–11. März 2006

2 Human mtDNA from MITOMAP HVS-I alias HVR1

3 The perception of evolution as seen through the lenses of laboratories constitutes an overlay of two different processes: Perceived evolution = Natural evolution (of the genome) + Artificial evolution (in the lab)

4 Migrational processes (prehistory) mtDNA and evolution α : Natural evolution

6 CRS RM all mutations that distinguish haplogroups M and R (part of N) incorrect rooting One of the first views of the East Asian mtDNA phylogeny (Ozawa, Herz 1994)

8 ... and a massive burst in haplogroup M, as e.g. seen in India: Sun et al (Mol Biol Evol, March 2006)

9 An Out-of-Africa model based on mtDNA analysis Kivisild et al (Springer-Verlag, April 2006)

11 Spatial frequency distributions of haplogroups H1, H3, V, and U5b reveal signature of post-LGM expansions Torroni et al (TIG, June 2006)

12 Laboratory-specific processes (error and fraud) mtDNA and evolution β : Artificial evolution

13 Major sources of error in mtDNA sequence data Artificial Recombination through contamination or sample mix-up (or targeting nuclear inserts of mtDNA) Phantom mutations sequencing errors at electrophoresis Documentation errors incurred by casual reading or writing

14 Impurifying selection is the driving force in artificial evolution inasmuch as incorrect data are more flexible to interpret and can support sexy stories — seemingly told by DNA — which are then disseminated by high-impact factor journals (e.g. Science and Nature). Worst case: mtDNA in cancer research (Salas et al, PLoS Medicine 2005)

15 Case of mtDNA sample mix-up, mis-interpreted as somatic mutations; data generated with MitoChip by Maitra et al (Genome Res, 2004) Data re-analysis by Bandelt et al (J Med Genet, 2005)

17 Prime example of a phantom mutation (Brandstätter et al, Electrophoresis 2005)

18 rCRS Electropherogram from Nasidze and Stoneking (2001) generated 1997 / 1998 and for the first time presented in Stoneking and Nasidze (Ann Hum Genet, 2006)

19 Phantom mutations can be found in excess in the HVS-I Caucasus data of Nasidze and Stoneking (2001). In view of additional problems, this may be regarded as the worst data set ever published in the realm of molecular anthropology; see Bandelt and Kivisild (Ann Hum Genet 2006) for data re-analysis

20 Sequences with phantom transitions at in those Caucasus data CodeMutation (16000+)Haplogroup AR G HV1 AR CJ AZ ? AZ pre-V AZ A ? CH G U1b CH ? DAR ? DAR ? KAB K This mutation pair has never been observed in >40,000 HVS-I sequences!

23 Comparison with 1624 complete sequences stored in the mtDB database Variation in : Only 20 transitional variants at Variation in : Only transitional variants at 16371, 16380, and 16381

24 Re-evaluation of the mtDNA data from the lab of Min-Xin Guan missing mutations misscored mutations in red Yao et al (Hum Genet, 2006) N M rCRS R

25 Strategies of authors to deal with errors 1st:Publishing a corrigendum [rare event] 2nd:No correction — but avoiding similar errors in future work [common practice] 3rd: No action — and committing the same errors as before [e.g. as Min-Xin Guan and colleagues do] 4th: Fraudulent action — performing fake analyses and giving false statements [ as done by Mark Stoneking and Ivane Nasidze in the Ann Hum Genet ]

26 ... only L strand, no H strand information shown! Stoneking and Nasidze (2006)
