ABSTRACT: Raw reads from whole-genome bisulfite sequencing. Whole-genome bisulfite sequencing library preparations and Illumina sequencing of DNA samples from TET2 mutation carriers (Ly9, Ly11, Ly14, Id1) and their age-matched controls (Ly8, Ly10, Ly13, Id2, Id3) was done as a service at BGI (BGI Tech Solutions Co., Ltd., China). Bisulfite treatment was done with EZ DNA Methylation-Gold Kit (Zymo Research, CA, USA) for 300-400bp size-range fragments with methylated adapters in 5' and 3' ends. Sequencing was done with the HiSeq X-Ten platform using paired-end 150 base-pair read length.
Project description:Raw reads from targeted bisulfite sequencing. The SureSelect Methyl-Seq target enrichment system (Agilent Technologies, Inc., CA, USA) was used to prepare bisulfite sequencing libraries from blood DNA samples of lymphoma patients (Ly1, Ly2), healthy family members (Ly8, Ly9, Ly10, Ly11, Ly12, Ly13 and Ly14), baseline controls (Control1-5), DNMT3A mutation carriers (Id5, Id7, Id9, Id11) and their age-matched controls (Id6, Id8, Id10, Id12). In addition, blood DNA sample of a patient (HLRCC_N7) with germline fumarate hydratase (FH) mutation is included. Illumina paired-end sequencing for targeted libraries from Ly1, Ly2, Ly8, Ly9, Ly10 and Ly11 was done at Karolinska Institutet using 100 base-pair read length and the HiSeq2000 platform. Illumina paired-end sequencing for targeted libraries from Ly12, Ly13, Ly14, and DNMT3A mutation carriers and their age-matched controls was done as a service at BGI (BGI Tech Solutions Co., Ltd., China) using 126 base-pair read length and the HiSeq2500 platform.
Project description:Raw reads from ChIP- [Anti-Histone H3 (acetyl K27) (Abcam, ab4729)] and input sequencing of EBV transformed lymphoblastoid cells from three carriers of TET2 mutation (Ly9, Ly11 and Ly14) and two wild-type (Ly8 and Ly10) family members using Illumina HiSeq Rapid paired-end 60 bp sequencing.
Project description:Raw reads from RNA-sequencing of monocyte-derived macrophages from three individuals with heterozygous TET2 loss (Ly9, Ly11, Ly14) and two wild-type controls (Ly8 and an unrelated control). Libraries were prepared using ScriptSeq RNA-Seq Library Preparation Kit and Illumina sequenced with paired-end 75bp reads.
Project description:Bam files from deep exome sequencing of blood DNA samples from five TET2 mutation carriers (Ly1, Ly2, Ly9, Ly11, Ly14) and three wild-type family members (Ly8, Ly10, Ly13) extracted at multiple time points. Library preparations were performed with SeqCap EZ Exome v3 (Roche, Switzerland) using six different index primers per sample for which paired-end Illumina sequencing was done with 75bp read length and HiSeq4000 sequencer. After alignment (bwa version 0.7.12), base recalibration (GATK 3.5), realignment around indels (GATK 3.5) and duplicate removal (MarkDuplicates; Picard Tools version 1.79), data from libraries with six different indexes were merged.
Project description:Background:DNA methylation plays a key role in the regulation of gene expression and carcinogenesis. Bisulfite sequencing studies mainly focus on calling single nucleotide polymorphism, different methylation region, and find allele-specific DNA methylation. Until now, only a few software tools have focused on virus integration using bisulfite sequencing data. Findings:We have developed a new and easy-to-use software tool, named BS-virus-finder (BSVF, RRID:SCR_015727), to detect viral integration breakpoints in whole human genomes. The tool is hosted at https://github.com/BGI-SZ/BSVF. Conclusions:BS-virus-finder demonstrates high sensitivity and specificity. It is useful in epigenetic studies and to reveal the relationship between viral integration and DNA methylation. BS-virus-finder is the first software tool to detect virus integration loci by using bisulfite sequencing data.
Project description:DNA-prep of Col and hcr2 mutant from seedling and bud sample. DNA was extracted using DNeasy Plant Mini Kit (Qiagen 69104, USA). Library construction and bisulfite conversion was performed using EZ DNA Methylation-Gold kit (ZYMO). DNA libraries are sequenced on the DNBseq platform (BGI, Hong Cong).
Project description:We used Methyl-MiniSeq platform from Zymo Research company to identify genome-wide methylation changes affected by lncRNA H19 knockdown in myotubes. Following H19 knockdown, we observed extensive genome-wide mthylation pattern changes relative to siCon cells, with some genes showing incresed methylation, others showing decreased methylation, and a third group with no significant change. Myotubes differentiated from mouse C3H myoblasts were transfected with either control siRNA or siH19, 48h later, cellular genomic DNA was extracted and subjected to genome-scale DNA methylation mapping using the platform of an improved version of Reduced Representation Bisulfite Sequencing (RRBS).
Project description:To compare the performance of Illumina and BGI sequencing technologies for high-throughput single cell sequencing, four Chromium single cell libraries of the following human cell types: Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (hIPSC), cultured Trabecular MeshWork Cells (TMWC) and Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells (PBMCs), were sequenced on Illumina sequencers (NextSeq 500, NovaSeq 6000) and a BGI sequencer (MGISEQ-2000). The technologies were benchmarked based on sequencing quality, characterisation of cell populations within samples and for specific single cell analyses such as variant calling and detection of guide RNAs from pooled CRISPR screens.
Project description:Marginal zone (MZ) and B1 B cells have the capacity to respond to foreign Ags more rapidly than conventional B cells, providing early immune responses to blood-borne pathogens. Ly9 (CD229, SLAMF3), a member of the signaling lymphocytic activation molecule family receptors, has been implicated in the development and function of innate T lymphocytes. In this article, we provide evidence that in Ly9-deficient mice splenic transitional 1, MZ, and B1a B cells are markedly expanded, whereas development of B lymphocytes in bone marrow is unaltered. Consistent with an increased number of these B cell subsets, we detected elevated levels of IgG3 natural Abs and a striking increase of T-independent type II Abs after immunization with 2,4,6-trinitrophenyl-Ficoll in the serum of Ly9-deficient mice. The notion that Ly9 could be a negative regulator of innate-like B cell responses was supported by the observation that administering an mAb directed against Ly9 to wild-type mice selectively eliminated splenic MZ B cells and significantly reduced the numbers of B1 and transitional 1 B cells. In addition, Ly9 mAb dramatically diminished in vivo humoral responses and caused a selective downregulation of the CD19/CD21/CD81 complex on B cells and concomitantly an impaired B cell survival and activation in an Fc-independent manner. We conclude that altered signaling caused by the absence of Ly9 or induced by anti-Ly9 may negatively regulate development and function of innate-like B cells by modulating B cell activation thresholds. The results suggest that Ly9 could serve as a novel target for the treatment of B cell-related diseases.
Project description:Signaling lymphocytic activation molecule family receptors and the specific adapter signaling lymphocytic activation molecule-associated protein modulate the development of innate-like lymphocytes. In this study, we show that the thymus of Ly9-deficient mice contains an expanded population of CD8 single-positive cells with the characteristic phenotype of innate memory-like CD8(+) T cells. Moreover, the proportion of these innate CD8(+) T cells increased dramatically postinfection with mouse CMV. Gene expression profiling of Ly9-deficient mice thymi showed a significant upregulation of IL-4 and promyelocytic leukemia zinc finger. Analyses of Ly9(-/-)IL4ra(-/-) double-deficient mice revealed that IL-4 was needed to generate the thymic innate CD8(+) T cell subset. Furthermore, increased numbers of invariant NKT cells were detected in Ly9-deficient thymi. In wild-type mice, IL-4 levels induced by ?-galactosylceramide injection could be inhibited by a mAb against Ly9. Thus, Ly9 plays a unique role as an inhibitory cell surface receptor regulating the size of the thymic innate CD8(+) T cell pool and the development of invariant NKT cells.
