Investigating the source and function of most of the genome: endogenous retroelements and the proteins that bind them Tim Hughes University of Toronto Banff International Research Station "Statistical and Computational Challenges in Large Scale Molecular Biology" March 27, 2017 Challenges 1.Mapping between DNA sequence and

Gene regulation occurs at many steps Promoter definition Enhancer definition Chromatin remodelling and modification DNA topology PIC formation Initiation Capping Elongation Splicing
Cleavage and polyadenylation Termination Nuclear export RNA localization Translation Degradation Cells can "classify" elements based solely on sequence we can too, right? Many successes at individual problems
Challenges 1.Mapping between DNA sequence and transcriptional outputs remains a good, but hard, computational problem (many problems) 2.Relative positioning of regulatory elements along chromosomes is important Classifiers for promoter and polyadenylation site Classifier outputs are emissions for HMM representing gene state Model learns what constitutes "normal" genes, predicts "dark matter" transcripts, heterogeneous ends, etc Tested by MPRA and by "gene synthesis"

3.Missing motifs for TFs CIS-BP: Catalog of Inferred Sequence Binding Preferences Tracks homology and predicts motifs across >300 genomes (Weirauch et al., Cell 2014 established thresholds for >40 DBD types) Weirauch, Yang et al., Cell 2014 CisBP-RNA: Ray, Kazan, Cook, Weirauch, Najafabadi et al., Nature, 2013 No motif for hundreds of human TFs Most are C2H2 zinc finger proteins A sampling of the ~710 human C2H2 proteins KRAB domain (352):
No motif for hundreds of human TFs Most are C2H2 zinc finger proteins Increase of ~260 in the last 4 months! Next ENCODE includes 159 C2H2 proteins Yin et al. (Taipale lab, in press) has SELEX data for several dozen C2H2 proteins A system for analysis of human C2H2 zinc finger DNA binding Recognition code trained on B1H

Challenges 1.Mapping between DNA sequence and transcriptional outputs remains a good, but hard, computational problem (many problems) 2.Relative positioning of regulatory elements along chromosomes is important 3.Missing motifs for TFs 4.Mapping the domestication of retroelements and transposons and, the genesis and adaptive roles of the proteins that bind them Human Endogenous Retroelement and Transposon catalog is incomplete
Proprietary "RepBase" is the gold standard RepBase combines automated and manuallydefined models / consensus / who-knows-what DFAM is an "open access" alternative, but only covers four species (Hs, Dr, Ce, Dm) Many of the models are truncated or noncoding Are there human TFs that evolved to silence elements that no longer exist in the human genome? Most retroelements in genomes are truncated (figure from Imbeault et al., 2017) Most LINE L1 models in DFAM are truncated A "working" LINE L1 is 6-7 kb
