Evolutionary Analysis 4/e

The origin of genetic variation I. Motivation Evolution is a change in the genotype of the population over time. Phenotypic differences between species reflects genetic differences between species =

genetic variation across species What is the origin of genetic variation?? Ultimate Source: MUTATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So what are you looking at? Who has a mutation they would like to discuss?

II. What is a mutation??? -offspring has DNA that is different from both parents -deleterious alleles in population are often referred to as mutations Mutation = change in nucleotide, deletion, insertion, duplication, inversion. mRNA

Note: Genetic Redundancy of Code Results in Synonymous & NonSynonymous Mutations for Protein Coding Regions Transitions are more common than transversions because DNA repair enzymes can recognize wrong insertion representing a a transition better than a transversion III. Properties of Mutations: Random

What are the effects of new (deletion) mutations? Deleterious? Strong? s = 1 fitness(mutation)/fitness(without mutation) Fitness of genotype with mutation = 1 - s RATES: How do you measure mutation rates at the DNA LEVEL? Direct sequencing of C. elegans

Mutation Accumulation Lines Denver et al. 2004 Generation 280: 29,561 bp in 72 MA lines Generation 353: 14,550 bp in 68 MA lines Generation 396: 18,718 bp in 58 MA lines ... Detected: 30 mutations (17/30 indels)

Transitions >> Transversions 1.6:1 ... Mutation rate: 2.1 x 10-8 /site/generation 400 generations = about 1 mutation/gamete or 2/zygote Mutation accumulation lines

Homozygous progenitor Single seed descent Mutation accumulation lines

Any genetic differences between lines = mutations Current project: extending MA research to field studies planted at 4 leaf rosette stage Field Site After Planting 100 lines(25th generation of MA) x 70 Replicates/line =

7000 + 500 parentals (founders) = 7500 plants Site 8 weeks later at harvest Herbivory MA lines have diverged in fitness Founder performance is near the average MA performance

Ours Others Mutation rates for fitness very high in field Suggest that many mutations do effect fitness, though of small effect Rutter et al., 2010 The Rate and Molecular Spectrum of Spontaneous Mutations in

Arabidopsis thaliana, Ossowski et al., 2010, Science, 1 January Conducted 30 generations of MA Screened 5 MA lines (we tested for performance) Detected 114 mutations Mutation Rate: 30 x 5 = 150 episodes 111 mutations/150 ~ 1.4 mutations per diploid or zygote generation

Each line ~ 20 mutations Accuracy: about 1 new mutation for every 200 mbp replicated Mutations Detected Dark blue lines are mutations in coding regions Comparison of Mutation Rate

at Sequence Level vs. Performance For each new zygote: 1.4 mutations at the sequence level 0.24 mutation rate for performance About 20% of mutations effect performance About 80% of mutations have no effect on performance About 20% of all sequence mutations were nonsynonymous and in coding regions

Rutter et al., Evolution, 2012 Adaptive landscapes & mutation parameters New MA lines from Sweden and France Fisher, 1930 Beginning of a conceptual framework

for the prediction of mutation effects (with Jon Agren, Thomas Lenormand & Eric Imbert) IV. Origin of new loci/function: Gene Duplication Timing of expression differs among members of the globin gene families Homologous genes come in one of two types:

O P Paralogs- loci that diverge following duplication Orthologs- loci that are homologous then diverge following speciation Pseudogenes- class of genes that have no function (non-transcribed Importance of gene duplication to evolution? VERY

V. Chromosome Inversions Suppress recombination inversions can keep gene combinations intact, eg. AbCdeF

AND THE EVOLUTIONARY IMPORTANCE????????? Evidence that inversions are associated with adaptation in Drosophila subobscura ALSO LINKAGE DISEQUILIBRIUM WITHIN INVERSION Mimulus guttatus

Figure 1. Geographic distribution of the chromosomal inversion. (A) Map of western North America with the locations of populations ofcoastal perennials (blue), inland annuals (orange), and inland perennials (purple), as well as obligate self-fertilizing species M. nasutus (yellow). (B) Marker order of the AN and PE inversion arrangements along linkage group eight. Inland annuals and M. nasutus had the AN arrangement whilecoastal and inland perennials all had the PE arrangement. doi:10.1371/journal.pbio.1000500.g001 Adaptive Inversion Contributes to Isolation

PLoS Biology | www.plosbiology.org 3 September 2010 | Volume 8 | Issue 9 | e1000500 Figure 2. Replicated effect of the inversion locus. (A) F2 progeny with parental ecotypic phenotypes, from a cross between the SWB (coastal perennial) and LMC (inland annual) populations. (BE) Effect of the inversion on flowering time in four independently derived F2 mapping populations created through crosses between independent inland annual and coastal perennial populations. (F) Effects of the inversion on flowering time in cross between inland annual and inland perennial populations. The mean flowering times (61 SE) of F2s that were homozygous for the AN arrangement (AA), heterozygous (AB), and homozygous for the PE arrangement (BB) at Micro6046 are indicated. The percentage of F2 variance/ parental divergence explained by the inversion is presented above each bar graph. Note: y-axes do not originate at zero. doi:10.1371/journal.pbio.1000500.g002

VI. Polyploidy duplication of the basic number of chromosomes, e.g.: 2n to 3 n to 4n etc., Results in instant

speciation Common, in plants Why? Answ: meiosis exposed, sex chromo. rare, selfing frequent. And others: Translocation, transposable elements VII. Much variation in populations Heterozygosity: average frequency of

heterozygotes across loci Proportion of loci polymorphic The distribution of enzyme heterozygosities among species of animals and plants Vertebrates Fraction of loci that are heterozygous in the

genotype of the average individual Sequencing studies have revealed enormous genetic diversity at the cystic fibrosis locus in humans. Loss of function mutations found in humans with cystic fibrosis Determining CCR5 genotypes by electrophoresis of DNA

Calculating Heterozygosity: Origin of fragment size: shorter by 32 nuc. 16/43= 0.37 (Hets) F(D32)= 16 + 2x1 = 18

18/86= 0.21 Conclusion

Mutation rates are high Mutations effect fitness Mutations contribute to genetic variation Duplications can lead to new gene function Inversions can protect adaptations Polyploidy can result in instant speciation Mutations are important to evolution
