Polyploid evolution

Structural and functional evolutionary dynamics of duplicated genes and genomes

Research

Context and Issues

Polyploidy or Whole Genome Duplication (WGD) has and still plays a major role in the evolution, diversification, and phenotypic plasticity of eukaryotes, especially in flowering plants (Angiosperms). One of the best plant systems to study this phenomenon corresponds to the Brassica genus as (i) it has been subjected to both recent and ancient polyploidization events, (ii) it is possible to resynthesize polyploids in the lab, (iii) assembled genomes exist for both diploid and polyploid species. Within the laboratory, we are interested in understanding the immediate impact of allopolyploidy on genome structure (i.e. identification of structural variations using SNP array or DNA Seq data, and validation using molecular cytogenetics: Rousseau-Gueutin et al. 2017; Stein et al. 2017), on the epigenome (BS-Seq: G. Richard post-doc) and on transcription of duplicated genes (RNA Seq: France Genomique project, ERA CAPS evo-Genapus),or on cytonuclear interaction (Ferreira de Carvalho et al. 2019). More precisely, we try to identify regions or molecular mechanisms that have facilitated its genome stabilization (by improving its meiotic stability: Pelé et al; 2018; Ferreira de Carvalho et al. subm) and that plays a role in fertility (including evolution of the self-incompatibility system: Azibi et al. 2020), thereafter facilitating its putative speciation success.

We are also working on the long-term evolutionary fate of genes duplicated by old polyploidization events. Indeed, Brassica species have been subjected to a whole triplication event since their divergence with Arabidopsis (about 20 millions of years ago), so that up to 3 copies of each Arabidopsis gene may be encountered for each diploid Brassica species. However, since these paleoploidization events in diploid species, important structural variations (i.e. reduction of chromosome number or structural variations: Boutte et al. 2020) and losses of most duplicated copies occurred. Additionally, we observed that the different oilseed rape varieties carry different translocations between A and C genomes (Rousseau-Gueutin et al. 2020) as synthetics but of smaller size. We are interested in understanding which and why some genes were retained in multiple copies (synteny and phylogenomic approaches), and if they retained the same function (Crispr-Cas9).

Methodology

  • Comparative and evolutionary genomics (DNA-Seq, RNA-Seq and BS-Seq)
  • Synteny analyses between fully assembled genomes
  • Molecular phylogenetics
  • Molecular cytogenetic (BAC-FISH and Oligo-Fish)
  • Functional genetics (Crispr-Cas9)

Main Results

Brassica species have been subjected to both ancient and recent polyploidization events. Taking advantage of various Brassica assembled genomes (for which we are deeply involved: see also project ‘Brassica Genomics and New Sequencing Technologies’ in close collaboration with Genoscope), we studied the fraction process in Brassica diploid species and observed that most duplicated genes returned to single copy. Interestingly, we observed that genes involved in chloroplast protein complexes show a higher retention of duplicated copies compared to other protein complexes. These old duplicated copies are functional and under purifying section, indicating that they retained the same function and act synergetically (Ferreira et al. 2019). To verify unambiguously such hypothesis, we use the Crispr-Cas9 technology to K-O one to several duplicated copies of a gene and study its impact on the phenotype (ANR PIA Genius project ‘Duplex’). Similarly, we studied the impact of paleopolyploidy on the self-incompatibility system and observed the diversity of the evolutionary fate of duplicated genes, with cases of pseudogeneization, sub-functionalization and even a case of neo-functionalization (Azibi et al. 2020). In addition to this process of loss/retention of duplicated genes (via fractionation), we also observed that different diploid B. rapa morphotypes (diverged less than 2 mya) presented important structural, resulting from recent insertions (mostly repeat elements) or inversions, which may represent 15-20% of its genome and presumably played a role in the currently existing important B. rapa morphotypic diversity (Boutte et al. 2020). We provide a new oilseed rape reference genome (Rousseau-Gueutin et al. 2020) with which all regions carrying repeated elements are well assembled even pericentromeric regions. It will be the support of new studies on the dynamics of genome at the allotetraploid level.

To decipher the immediate impact of allopolyploidy on structural and functional genome evolution, we also created resynthesized B. napus population in the laboratory. We notably observed that the mating system type in the first generations following allopolyploidy played a major role in the putative speciation success of a polyploid. Indeed, progenies deriving from outcrossing between resynthesized B. napus rather than by selfing show a much lower level of aneuploidy, despite being subjected to numerous homoeologous exchanges (Rousseau-Gueutin et al. 2017). Using such populations, we are currently identifying genomic regions that may improve genome stability (more bivalent pairing) or fertility of newly formed polyploids (Ferreira de Carvalho et al. subm.).
