Chromosome Rearrangement and Diversification of Francisella tularensis Revealed by the Type B (OSU18) Genome Sequence ; JBacteriol 2006

Genome sequencing and assembly. Sequencing and assembly of the F. tularensis subsp. holarctica strain OSU18 genome were accomplished by the whole-genome shotgun (WGS) method, similar to a previously described method (22). Briefly, the WGS clones were sequenced using ABI 3730 sequencers, and the sequence bases were called using the Applied Biosystems sequencing analysis software KB Basecaller. The WGS reads were assembled by using Atlas (11) and Phrap (7). The initial WGS assembly resulted in 132 contigs in 33 scaffolds with approximately 26× sequence coverage. Gaps between contigs and scaffolds were closed by sequencing PCR products that spanned gaps or by sequencing small insert libraries generated from the PCR products. Low-quality regions were resequenced using clones or PCR products spanning the regions to ensure that the Phrap quality score for each base was equal to or greater than 30. This relatively deep data set should enable further studies involving new sequencing, comparative genomics, and proteomics strategies and technologies. Included among these strategies and technologies are (i) using sequencing reads to scan for possible phase variation in Francisella cultures, (ii) using WGS clones as gene expression constructs for peptide array-based antigen screens, and (iii) using the deep coverage of sequencing reads as a representative data set for comparing existing sequencing methodologies to new technologies in various stages of development.

  • 22727 out of 216495 (>10%) 454p don't contain a 100% identical copy of the linker GTTGGAACCGAAAGGGTTTGAATTCAAACCCTTTCGGTTCCAAC
  • 687 sequences contained 2 copies of the adapter





 1. The complete genome sequence was downloaded from NCBI: NC_008369.1
 2. Reads were downloaded from TA and formatted using tarchive2ca 
 3. Only the 2 Sanger libraries for this project were considered
      BFTBP: #reads=58051 , insert_mean=2000, insert_stdev=666 
      BFTDP: #reads=10409 , insert_mean=2000, insert_stdev=666 
 4. The reads have been retrimmed using veraTrim (-T 10 -M 100 -E 500)
 5. has been used to assemble all the reads 
    location: 2007_0724_WGA-default/ 
    =>160 scaff, 163 contigs, 23X coverage
 6. The library sizes were updates using the WGA estimates
      BFTBP: insert_mean=2690.042, insert_stdev=643.126
      BFTDP: insert_mean=3675.914, insert_stdev=1225
 7. The WGA was aligned to the reference using nucmer; one rearrangement, one  
    deletion and several SNP's were noticed
 8. The reads were assembled using AMOScmp (default parameters) 
    location: 2007_0724_AMOSCMP-default/
    => 1 scaffold, 22 contigs
    2 missoriented read pile regions were noticed
 9. The assembly was aligned to itself; 950 bp inverted repeats were identified as 
    flanking the problem regions; the coordinates are:
     16336-21562   (5  KB)
     167086-184936 (17 KB)
 10. The 2 regions were flipped ; the new reference is called NC_008369.2
 11. Several small contig (step 8) read clear ranges have been extend to their OBT 
     trimming points
 12. AMOScmp was rerun using more relaxed parameters: 
       nucmer      MINCLUSTER=30 
       casm-layout MAXTRIM=50
    location: 2007_0731_AMOSCMP-veraTrim-updateDst-relaxed-updateClr-fixRef2->best
    => 1 scaffold, 8 contigs
