Genomes and Epigenomes

Welcome to the Nature Communications Editors’ Highlights webpage on genomes and epigenomes. Each month our editors select a small number of Articles recently published in Nature Communications that they believe are particularly interesting or important.

The aim is to provide a snapshot of some of the most exciting work published in the area of genomes and epigenomes at Nature Communications. Each editor handles a different area of this research, as described below:

Ian Green handles cancer genetics, epigenetics, and epigenomics, across the breadth of cancer types from mechanism to intervention.

Carolina Perdigoto handles manuscripts in the areas of transcription, chromatin biology, epigenetics and epigenomics.

Lin Tang handles genetics, bioinformatics/computational biology and molecular evolution.

Michelle Trenkmann handles human genetics, including manuscripts about complex traits and Mendelian diseases, population genetics and bioinformatics.

    The connection between DNA replication timing and changes that occur to the epigenome in cancer are still poorly understood. Here, the authors perform Repli-Seq and integrated epigenome analyses and find that genomic regions that undergo long-range epigenetic deregulation in prostate cancer also show concordant differences in replication timing.

    When examining the evolution of treatment resistance in breast cancer, perceived genomic changes may be due to clonal evolution or heterogeneous tumors. Here, the authors show that apparent clonal change can in fact be due to pre-treatment heterogeneity, and samples from at least two regions are necessary to detect treatment-induced clonal shifts

    It is difficult to identify cancer driver genes in cancers, for instance BRCA1 mutated breast cancer, that are characterised by large scale genomic alterations. Here, the authors develop genetically engineered mouse models of BRCA1-deficient breast cancer that allow highthroughput in vivo perturbation of candidate driver genes, validating drivers Myc, Met, Pten and Rb1, and identifying MCL1 as a collaborating driver whose targeting can impact efficacy of PARP inhibition.

    In gene regulation, diversification at the transcriptome 3′end is linked to differentiation and dedifferentiation. Here, the authors discover extensive transcriptome 3′end-alterations in neuroblastoma, regulated by PCF11, and provide an interactive data repository of transcriptome-wide alternative polyadenylation.

    It is unclear how intra-tumoral heterogeneity contributes to metastasis. Here the authors study the clonal dynamics of triple negative breast cancer metastasis using patient derived xenografts and demonstrate that primary tumor clones harbor properties that support seeding and colonization of multiple organs.

    The inactive X chromosome (Xi) is a model for establishment and maintenance of repressed chromatin and the function of polycomb repressive complexes. Here the authors show that Xi transiently relocates from the nuclear periphery during replication in a CIZ1-dependent manner, which plays a role in maintaining PRC-mediated repressed chromatin.

    Kinetochore function depends on H4K20 monomethylation in centromeric nucleosomes but the underlying mechanism is unclear. Here, the authors provide evidence that the centromere-specific nucleosome subunit CENP-A facilitates H4K20 methylation by enabling a conformational change of the H4 N-terminal tail.

    Animal studies have shown that the nutritional status of parents can predispose the offspring to obesity and obesity-related diseases. Here the authors show that cardiac dysfunction induced by a high-fat diet persists for two generations in Drosophila, and that targeted expression of ATGL/bmm in the offspring, as well as inhibition of H3K27 trimethylation, is cardioprotective.

    In fission yeast, Erh1, ortholog of human ERH, interacts with the YTH family RNA binding protein Mmi1 to form the Erh1-Mmi1 complex (EMC), which has been implicated in gene silencing. Here, the authors present the cocrystal structure of Erh1 homodimers interacting with Mmi1 and further characterise the role of EMC in facultative heterochromatin assembly and gene silencing.

    DNA methylation is an epigenetic mark involved in gene regulation. Here the authors investigate the extent to which genetics, sex and pregnancy influence genomic DNA methylation in mice, providing evidence of the stability of CpG methylation across generation and suggest that CpG methylation may serve as an epigenetic record of life events in somatic tissues at loci whose expression is linked to the relevant biology.

Here, the authors develop FastANI, a method to compute ANI using alignment-free approximate sequence mapping, and show 95% ANI is an accurate threshold for demarcating prokaryotic species by analyzing about 90,000 prokaryotic genomes.

    Nuclear envelopathies are a group of diseases caused by genetic mutations in essential nuclear envelope genes. Here, the authors report a nuclear envelopathy with a homozygous nonsense variant in TOR1AIP1 which leads to changes in the nuclear morphology including large nuclear-spanning channels in patients’ fibroblasts.
