Article
Full-text available
Malaria is a vector-borne disease caused by protozoan parasites of the genus Plasmodium. Plasmodium vivax is the most prevalent human-infecting species in the Americas. However, the origins of this parasite in this continent are still debated. Similarly, it is now accepted that the existence of Plasmodium simium is explained by a P. vivax transfer...

The Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the third human-emerged virus of the 21st century from the Coronaviridae family, causing the ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Due to the high zoonotic potential of coronaviruses, it is critical to unravel their evolutionary history of host species breadth, host...
Article
Full-text available
Plasmodium vivax is the most common and widespread human malaria parasite. It was recently proposed that P. vivax originates from sub-Saharan Africa based on the circulation of its closest genetic relatives ( P. vivax-like ) among African great apes. However, the limited number of genetic markers and samples investigated questions the robustness of...
Preprint
The Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the third virus within the Orthocoronavirinae causing an emergent infectious disease in humans, the ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic (COVID-19). Due to the high zoonotic potential of these viruses, it is critical to unravel their evolutionary history of host species shift,...
Article
Full-text available
Histone modifications deposited by the Polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2) play a critical role in the control of growth, development, and adaptation to environmental fluctuations of most multicellular eukaryotes. The catalytic activity of PRC2 is counteracted by Jumonji-type (JMJ) histone demethylases, which shapes the genomic distribution of H3K...
Article
Full-text available
Plant NLR-type receptors serve as sensitive triggers of host immunity. Their expression has to be well-balanced, due to their interference with various cellular processes and dose-dependency of their defense-inducing activity. A genetic "arms race" with fast-evolving pathogenic microbes requires plants to constantly innovate their NLR repertoires....

Full-text available
Plasmodium vivax is the most prevalent and widespread human malaria parasite, with almost three billion people living at risk of infection. With the discovery of its closest genetic relatives in African great apes (Plasmodium vivax-like), the origin of P. vivax has been proposed to be located in the sub-Saharan African area. However, the limited nu...

Article
In agricultural systems, crops equipped with host-plant resistance (HPR) have enhanced protection against pests, and are used as a safe and sustainable tool in pest management. In soybean, HPR can control the soybean aphid (Aphis glycines), but certain aphid populations have overcome this resistance (i.e., virulence). The molecular mechanisms under...
Article
Somatic embryogenesis is an important tissue culture technique that sometimes leads to phenotypic variation via genetic and/or epigenetic changes. To understand the genomic and epigenomic impacts of somatic embryogenesis, we characterized soybean (Glycine max) epigenomes sampled from embryos at 10 different stages ranging from 6 weeks to 13 years o...
Article
Full-text available
The genome-wide investigation of DNA methylation levels has been limited to reference transposable element positions. The methylation analysis of non-reference and mobile transposable elements has only recently been performed, but required both genome resequencing and MethylC-seq datasets. We have created epiTEome, a program that detects both new t...
Article
In [1] , Fig. 1 is inconsistent with the text manuscript. First, the black curve corresponding to case 1 did not correspond to the result from the experiment described in the paper, but to another which was removed from the final manuscript. The second error was a typo with an inversion between the green and blue text indicating NTE50 and LTE50 fo...
Article
Full-text available
Transposable elements (TEs) constitute the most dynamic and the largest component of large plant genomes: for example, 80% to 90% of the maize genome and the wheat genome may be TEs. De novo TE annotation is therefore a computational challenge, and we investigated, using current tools in the REPET package, new strategies to overcome the difficultie...
Article
Full-text available
Background Chromatin modifications such as DNA methylation are targeted to transposable elements by small RNAs in a process termed RNA-directed DNA methylation (RdDM). In plants, canonical RdDM functions through RNA polymerase IV to reinforce pre-existing transposable element silencing. Recent investigations have identified a “non-canonical” form o...
Article
Full-text available
Background Bread wheat is not only an important crop, but its large (17 Gb), highly repetitive, and hexaploid genome makes it a good model to study the organization and evolution of complex genomes. Recently, we produced a high quality reference sequence of wheat chromosome 3B (774 Mb), which provides an excellent opportunity to study the evolution...
Article
Full-text available
Background The 17 Gb bread wheat genome has massively expanded through the proliferation of transposable elements and two recent rounds of polyploidization. The assembly of a 774 Mb reference sequence of wheat chromosome 3B provided us with the opportunity to explore the impact of transposable elements (TEs) on the complex wheat genome structure an...
Article
Full-text available
We produced a reference sequence of the 1-gigabase chromosome 3B of hexaploid bread wheat. By sequencing 8452 bacterial artificial chromosomes in pools, we assembled a sequence of 774 megabases carrying 5326 protein-coding genes, 1938 pseudogenes, and 85% of transposable elements. The distribution of structural and functional features along the chr...

Full-text available
Since research on plant interactions with herbivores and pathogens is often constrained by the analysis of already known compounds, there is a need to identify new defense-related plant metabolites. The uncommon nonprotein amino acid N(δ)-acetylornithine was discovered in a targeted search for Arabidopsis thaliana metabolites that are strongly indu...
Conference Paper
In order to assemble a high quality reference sequence of the 1 Gb wheat chromosome 3B, we sequenced 8452 BACs comprising the Minimal Tiling Path using Roche/454 8 kb long paired-end reads. BACs were pooled by 10 while promoting the pooling of overlapping BACs. In total, 931 BAC-pool libraries were produced. First, read assembly and scaffolding led...
Conference Paper
Despite the socio-economic importance of bread wheat and the overall recognition that a reference genome sequence has great value for crop improvement, sequencing the wheat genome has long been considered “impossible” because of the sequencing cost and bioinformatic challenges associated with the assembly of the mostly repetitive 17 Gb hexaploid ge...
Conference Paper
We have undertaken the complete sequencing of the wheat chromosome 3B which accounts for nearly 1 Gb. It was assembled into less than 5000 scaffolds and the construction of a pseudomolecule is underway, providing an opportunity to study the dynamics of transposable elements (TEs) at a scale never reached so far in a giant and polyploid genome. To p...
