Methodological pipeline for genomic knowledge acquisition
We sequenced a collection of tradition traces, every together with one of the 4 species of curiosity (M. vibrans, P. atlantis, P. vietnamica and P. chileana). The cultures of M. vibrans and P. atlantis (previously Nuclearia sp.) had been purchased in ATCC (M. vibrans Tong. ATCC 50519 and Nuclearia sp. ATCC 50694, respectively). The cultures of P. vietnamica (previously Opistho-1) and P. chileana (previously Opistho-2) descend from the environmental isolates (P. vietnamica from a Freshwater Lake, Vietnam; and P. chileana from freshwater momentary water physique, Chile) utilized in ref. 12. As anticipated, the beginning cultures included an unsure fraction of contaminant species. In explicit, the cultures of M. vibrans and P. atlantis included an unsure variety of bacterial contamination, whereas the cultures of every Pigoraptor species additionally included contamination from the eukaryote Parabodo caudatus. The sequenced metagenomic knowledge had been submitted to a bioinformatic decontamination pipeline that consisted of two to 3 rounds of detection and removing of contaminant fragments based mostly on taxonomic and tetranucleotide composition info. All steps had been completely supervised to maximise the retention of bona fide genomic fragments from our species of curiosity and the removing of contaminant sequences. Decontaminated genomes had been annotated combining each RNA sequencing-based BRAKER1 v1.9 (ref. 34) and PASA v2.0.2 (ref. 35) automated annotation pipelines, the outcomes of which had been processed to right inaccurate gene predictions which may result in the inference of false gene fusions. See Supplementary Information 1 for an in depth clarification about the nature of the sequenced knowledge and the decontamination and genome annotation processes (see Fig. 1 in Supplementary Information 1 for a abstract illustration).
Clustering sequences into orthogroups
A dataset of 1,463,920 protein sequences from 83 eukaryotic species, 59 from Opisthokonta (together with the 4 genomes produced) and 24 from different eukaryotic teams, was constructed (draft_euk_db; see Supplementary Table 4). Protein sequences had been aligned all-against-all utilizing BLASTp36 v2.5 [-seg yes, -soft_masking true, -evalue 1e-3]. On the foundation of the alignments, proteins had been clustered into orthogroups (OGs) with OrthoFinder37 v2.7 [-I 2]. We deal with OGs as proxies of gene households. The OGs produced by OrthoFinder had been processed with the MAPBOS pipeline to repair protein area heterogeneity issues that may compromise downstream analyses (see Supplementary Information 2 for a dialogue of this subject, and for an evidence of the algorithm that we developed to right it).
Species tree reconstruction
Ancestral gene contents had been inferred by means of a gene tree–species tree reconciliation software program. We thus wanted to reconstruct a phylogenetic tree for each gene household and a species tree of the entire eukaryotic supergroup Opisthokonta. The outcomes from the species tree reconstruction analyses can be found in Supplementary Information 3. We first chosen 342 OGs current in >77% of draft_euk_db taxa and with not more than a mean of 1.16 copies per taxa. We measured alignment instability of the 342 OGs utilizing COS.pl and msa_set_score v2.02, that are based mostly on the Heads-or-Tails method38,39, maintaining solely these OGs with >0.70 imply column rating (MCs). We manually curated the 69 OGs that survived to this filter by performing particular person phylogenies for every one, utilizing MAFFT40 v7.123b [-einsi] for sequence alignment, trimAl41 v1.4.rev15 [-gappyout] for alignment trimming and IQ-TREE42 v1.6.7 for maximum-likelihood (ML) phylogenetic inference, utilizing ModelFinder43 for mannequin choice. Three of these 69 OGs had been discarded as a result of the topology was strongly in disagreement with the anticipated species topology. For the remaining 66 OGs (hereafter known as the MCs70 dataset), we eliminated sequences whose branching sample steered that they had been almost definitely misclassified as OG members. In addition, to maintain just one sequence per taxon in each OG, for inparalogue circumstances, we saved the least divergent sequence in keeping with department size. We eliminated a complete of 630 sequences from the MCs70 dataset, together with seemingly misclassified OG members but additionally contaminant sequences. Most contamination circumstances discovered correspond to contamination from Stramenopiles in the proteome of Syssomonas multiformis, most likely from Spumella sp.12. However, we additionally detected Pirum gemmata contamination in the proteome of Abeoforma whisleri, and few from Ichthyophonus hoferi in Sphaerothecum destruens, indicating cross-contamination issues between these ichthyosporeans datasets. Still, these circumstances of contamination neither affected the phylogenetic inference, as they had been eliminated throughout the screening, nor the downstream analyses, as these species had been solely used for species tree reconstruction functions.
We created two distinct variations of the MCs70 dataset: the first dataset together with all sequences from Holozoa (ingroup) and from three Holomycota taxa (outgroup) (Holozoa MCs70), and the second dataset together with all sequences from Holomyoca (ingroup) and from three Holozoa taxa (outgroup) (Holomycota MCs70). An alignment supermatrix was created for every dataset, first aligning and trimming every OG per separate [MAFFT -einsi, trimAl -gappyout], and later concatenating the alignments right into a supermatrix (Holozoa MCs70: 37 taxa, 17,475 websites and 9.27% of lacking knowledge; Holomycota MCs70: 28 taxa, 17,409 websites and 7.81% of lacking knowledge). We constructed a phylogenetic tree for each MCs70 datasets utilizing ML and Bayesian inference. ML inferences had been accomplished with IQ-TREE, and the fashions chosen for Holozoa and Holomycota MCs70 datasets had been LG+C50+F+R7 and LG+C30+F+R6, respectively. Despite ModelFinder suggesting the utilization of C60 (ref. 44) for Holomycota MCs70, we used combination fashions with fewer profiles to keep away from potential mannequin overfitting, as some optimized combination weights had been estimated near zero. Nodal helps for the ML timber consisted of 1,000 IQ-TREE ultrafast bootstrap replicates (UFBoot) and 100 normal non-parametric bootstrap replicates. Non-parametric bootstraps had been computed beneath the PMSF mannequin45. We used the beforehand inferred ML timber as information timber to deduce combination mannequin parameters and site-specific frequency profiles, as applied in IQ-TREE v1.6.7. Bayesian phylogenies had been accomplished beneath the CAT+GTR+Gamma(4) mannequin in PhyloBayes-MPI46 v1.8. Two chains had been run for Holozoa MCs70 and for Holomycota MCs70 supermatrices, and convergence was assessed utilizing the bpcomp and tracecomp packages in the PhyloBayes-MPI package deal. Consensus timber had been constructed when the most between chain discrepancy in bipartition frequencies fell beneath 0.1 (burn-in 33%). We additionally carried out three further analyses (rising quantity of positions in the supermatrix, compositional recoding and fastest-evolving websites removing) to check the robustness of the topological relationships discovered (see Supplementary Information 3).
Incorporation of prokaryotic homologues into the OGs
We included prokaryotic homologues into the clusters earlier than the MAPBOS processing step. For the incorporation of prokaryotic (and viral) homologues into the clusters, we first used DIAMOND47 v0.8.22.84 [–more-sensitive, -e 1e-05] to align all eukaryotic sequences from euk_db (a subset of draft_euk_db, which incorporates the species labelled in daring in Supplementary Table 4) to a database together with 8,231,104 bacterial, 331,476 archaeal and 20,955 viral from Uniprot reference proteomes (launch 2016_02; prok_db) (ahead alignment method). The aligned sequences from prok_db had been aligned again towards euk_db sequences (reverse alignment method). Hits with a question and goal alignment coverages decrease than 75% had been discarded, in addition to hits by which the best-scoring euk_db goal of a given prok_db question was a member of a definite cluster than the best-scoring euk_db question for that prok_db sequence in the ahead alignment. After discarding the hits not satisfying these situations, we included into the clusters solely the best-scoring prok_db question of every euk_db goal sequence (that’s, if a cluster has 300 sequences and the best-scoring question of all them was the similar prok_db sequence, solely that sequence will probably be included into the cluster, which is able to then have 300 euk_db sequences and 1 prok_db sequence). Prok_db sequences had been included into OrthoFinder -I 2 clusters earlier than these had been processed by the MAPBOS pipeline (Supplementary Information 3). After MAPBOS, clusters included 1,117,614 eukaryotic sequences and 58,017 non-eukaryotic sequences (53,168, 4,301 and 548 from Bacteria, Archaea and viruses, respectively). All these 1,175,631 sequences had been distributed amongst 413,445 clusters, 370,686 of that are singletons. Among eukaryotic sequences, on a taxonomic degree, clusters included sequences principally from Opisthokonta (50 species), but additionally from 18 representatives of different main eukaryotic teams (euk_db dataset).
Gene tree inference and gene tree–species tree reconciliation analyses
We submitted each post-MAPBOS OGs (or clusters) to a gene tree inference pipeline, consisting of utilizing MAFFT-linsi for the alignment step, trimAl [–gappyout] for alignment trimming and IQ-TREE for the phylogenetic inference. In explicit, IQ-TREE was run utilizing the LG+G4 mannequin and sampling 1,000 optimized [-bnni] UFBoot replicates for each gene tree.
For the gene tree–species tree reconciliation analyses, we used ALEml_undated from ALE v0.4 (https://github.com/ssolo/ALE). ALEml_undated requires a distribution of phylogenetic timber for each gene household (the UFBoot replicates in our case) and a species tree. The Opisthokonta fraction of the species tree consisted of the most favoured topology in keeping with our analyses, which solely included Opisthokonta taxa (Fig. 1 in Supplementary Information 3). The phylogenetic relationships between the non-Opisthokonta taxa had been instantly decided from a consensus of at present obtainable bibliographical references48,49,50,51,52,53,54,55,56 (all euk_db species had been included in the reconciliation analyses). Reconciliation analyses additionally included non-eukaryotic sequences (see above), which, for sensible causes, had been assigned to the similar terminal node in the species tree (named ‘Prokaryotes’ in Fig. 7 in Supplementary Information 3). Eukaryotes with solely transcriptomic or poor-quality genomic knowledge had been excluded from the reconciliation analyses (these labelled in gray in Fig. 1 in Supplementary Information 3). Note that the inclusion of transcriptomic knowledge would have been notably problematic to our examine for the following causes: (1) gene content material predictions from transcriptomic are likely to current inflated gene counts. For instance, the proteomes that had been beforehand produced based mostly solely on transcriptomic knowledge for P. atlantis2 and for P. vietnamica and P. chileana12 embrace far more sequences (29,620, 46,018 and 37,783) than the proteomes that we predicted from the genome sequences of these species (9,028, 14,822 and 14,510), with the genome-based proteomes displaying even higher completeness metrics (Fig. 23 in Supplementary Information 1). Inflated gene counts are anticipated to provide an extra of duplication inferences in the reconciliations, whereas (2) unexpressed genes could also be confused by gene losses. (3) Transcriptomes are tougher to decontaminate on account of the lack of genomic context info relating to neighbouring genes, intron sequences or compositional options of the coding sequence, whereas (4) these sequences predicted from partial isoforms are anticipated to result in inaccuracies to the software program used to detect gene fusions (see beneath). (5) Accurate gene contents had been additionally necessary provided that the reconciliation software program used (see above) infers the values for parameters resembling gene duplication and loss charges from the knowledge.
Inference of gene fusion occasions
We used CompositeSearch57 to determine composite gene households, that’s, households of genes whose protein sequence consists by fractions—for instance, protein domains—which are individually present in different, element, gene households. CompositeSearch requires as enter all-against-all sequence alignments, for which we used the similar BLASTp outcomes used for OrthoFinder (see above), though alignment hits comparable to draft_euk_db species not represented in euk_db had been eliminated. Before getting used as enter for CompositeSearch, BLASTp outcomes had been preprocessed with cleanBlastp (included in CompositeSearch) to retain solely the hit with the highest rating amongst all hits involving the similar question–goal pair. CompositeSearch was run with the default parameters and forcing the software program [-f] to work on the clusters ensuing from the processing of the OG from OrthoFinder by the MAPBOS pipeline. Families with just one sequence had been discarded as potential parts [-y]. Prok_db sequences weren’t included in composite inferences as alignments between prok_db and euk_db sequences had been accomplished with DIAMOND as a substitute of BLASTp on account of computational time limitations. Because we work at the gene household degree (clusters), we solely thought of as composites these clusters by which >50% of members had been detected as composite sequences. This consists of 48,066 clusters, 3,229 of which aren’t singletons.
CompositeSearch detects as a composite any sequence that matches with distinct subsets of sequences (parts, from different OGs) in several areas of its sequence. Whereas fusion occasions could result in composite sequences, not all sequences detected as composites essentially originated from a gene fusion course of. For instance, a sequence discovered to be composite by the software program might have originated de novo in a given ancestral lineage (gene X–domains A and B), and then, in a descendant lineage, that gene might have been cut up into two separate genes (gene Y–area A and gene Z–area B). In such a case of gene fission, the software program would detect the gene X as a composite as a result of some half of the sequence could be aligned by the gene Y (first element) and the different by the gene Z (second element). To retain solely bona fide fusion composite sequences, we solely thought of these composite sequences by which all their parts had been inferred to have a extra ancestral origin than the composite. This was accomplished to reduce the false-positive inferences of fusions, at the expense of dropping potential fusion occasions by which, for instance, each the composite and the parts could have originated in the similar node of the phylogeny.
Functional annotation of sequences and OGs
Protein area architectures of euk_db sequences and of prok_db captured sequences (see above) had been decided with PfamScan58 utilizing Pfam A v29. Cluster of Orthologous Groups useful classes (useful classes) and KEGG Orthology Groups (KOs)59 had been annotated to euk_db sequences with eggNOG-mapper60 v1.0.3-3-g3e22728, utilizing DIAMOND for the alignments of euk_db sequences towards the eggNOG database (the useful class ‘S: unknown function’ was ignored because it doesn’t embrace useful info). Once sequences had been annotated, the useful classes and KO annotations of each cluster had been decided by averaging the annotations of the corresponding cluster members. For instance, if a cluster consists of two sequences (SeqA and SeqB), and SeqA was annotated with the useful class Ok and SeqB with the useful classes B and Ok, that cluster could be annotated as 0.75K and 0.25B (0.5K from SeqA + 0.25K from SeqB, and 0.25B from SeqB).
Inference of beneficial properties, losses and counts of useful classes and metabolic gene contents
From the reconciliation analyses (see ‘Gene tree inference and reconciliation analyses’), we retrieved the quantity of beneficial properties, losses and gene contents of each OG in each node in the phylogeny. For each given node, we decided the absolute illustration of all useful classes by crossing the info between the quantity of copies of each OG in the node and the relative illustration of each useful class amongst the useful info of the OGs. The similar was accomplished to find out the KO contents of each node. The proportion of metabolic genes of each node was decided by dividing the quantity of KOs with metabolic annotations by the whole quantity of genes in the node (in addition to KOs belonging to the ‘metabolic category’, these belonging to the class ‘membrane transport’ had been additionally thought of as metabolic genes). The relative illustration of each useful class in each node was decided by dividing the absolute worth of each class in the node by the sum of the absolute values of all useful classes in the node. Gains and losses of useful classes and KOs had been decided by evaluating the contents of each node with these of its instantly previous node.
Statistical analyses had been carried out both in Python, primarily with the libraries Pandas61 and NumPy62, or in R. All descriptive statistics plots (with the exception of these together with phylogenetic timber, which had been constructed with ITOL63) had been accomplished in R, notably with the ggplot2 package deal64. Mann–Whitney U-tests (one-tailed) had been accomplished in Python with SciPy65 (scipy.stats.mannwhitneyu). More particular statistical analyses are detailed beneath.
Correspondence analyses of relative useful class compositions
The relative genomic illustration of useful classes are examples of compositional knowledge (CoDa)66, by which each column (a useful class) is represented by a relative fraction and the sum of all values is the similar for each row (genome). Owing to the undeniable fact that no orthogonality and collinearity are properties of CoDa, mostly used multivariate analyses strategies resembling principal element analyses are unappropriated for CoDa analyses and options resembling correspondence analyses are advisable as a substitute66. Correspondence analyses had been accomplished in R67 with FactoMiner package deal68 and the plots had been constructed with the factoextra package deal69.
Machine studying classifiers
For the classifiers of metazoan and fungal useful class compositions, we benchmarked 5 extensively used studying fashions: logistic regression, ok-nearest neighbours classifier, help vector classifier, Random Forest and synthetic neural community, fine-tuning in each case the mannequin hyperparameters utilizing fivefold cross-validation. In whole, we generated two classifiers for each studying mannequin: one educated to differentiate between the useful class compositions of metazoan versus the different terminal nodes in Opisthokonta; and one other doing the similar however for Fungi as a substitute of Metazoa. Relative useful class compositions weren’t used as options to coach the mannequin by the undeniable fact that they’re correlated between them. Instead, the fashions had been educated with the parts retrieved from the correspondence analyses on the relative useful class compositions of opisthokont terminal nodes (relative compositions had been computed excluding the S ‘unknown function’ class and doing first a column-wise and then a row-wise normalization earlier than correspondence analyses was carried out). Once fashions had been educated, we computed the likelihood of belonging to the given class (Metazoa or Fungi, relying on the mannequin) for each opisthokont node, together with each terminal (used for mannequin coaching) and inner (not used for mannequin coaching) (see values in Supplementary Table 5). The possibilities represented in Extended Data Fig. 4d correspond to a weighted common over the possibilities retrieved from each classifier (excluding logistic regression for being in disagreement and displaying worse predictions than the different classifiers). The weights had been decided in the following method: for each node, the common likelihood was computed, and then we computed the variance of the 4 fashions with respect to that averages. The weight of each mannequin corresponds to the inverse of the relative variance of that mannequin divided by the sum of the variances of the 4 fashions. The code is out there at https://doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.13140191.v1 (‘fungiMetazoa_predModels’ in Code.300322.zip). We anticipate the predictors to seize the genomic compositional options properly, as, for instance, in the case of Metazoa, Trichoplax adherens, the animal with the lowest diploma of phenotypic complexity amongst the sampled species, is the node with lowest likelihood (Extended Data Fig. 4d). All of these analyses had been carried out in Python utilizing packages from Sci-kit be taught70, TensorFlow71 and Keras72 libraries.
