Insertions and deletions indels are common molecular evolutionary events. However, probabilistic models for indel evolution are under-developed due to their computational complexity. Here, we introduce several improvements to indel modeling: 1 While models for indel evolution assumed that the rates and length distributions of insertions and deletions are equal, here we propose a richer model that explicitly distinguishes between the two; 2 we introduce numerous summary statistics that allow approximate Bayesian computation-based parameter estimation; 3 we develop a method to correct for biases introduced by alignment programs, when inferring indel parameters from empirical data sets; and 4 using a model-selection scheme, we test whether the richer model better fits biological data compared with the simpler model.

Our analyses suggest that both our inference scheme and the model-selection procedure achieve high accuracy on simulated data. We further demonstrate that our proposed richer model better fits a Large insertions tumblr of empirical data sets and that, for the majority of these data sets, the deletion rate is higher than the insertion rate.

Insertions and deletions indels shape genes and genomes and are fundamental in molecular evolution research Cartwright Indels are of great importance for ancestral Large insertions tumblr reconstruction Ashkenazy et al. Fitch was the first to observe that deletions may be more common Large insertions tumblr insertions, however, this observation was based on very few protein sequences. In support of this hypothesis, Graur et al. This deletion bias was confirmed by numerous other studies Ogata et al.

Regarding the distribution of indel length, it was repeatedly observed that both in proteins and DNA sequences, single-site indels are the most frequent and the occurrence of indels declines monotonically as a function of their length Pascarella and Argos ; Benner et al. Two distributions were proposed for the indel length: geometric and Zipfian. It was ly shown that the Zipfian distribution better fits biological data sets, both for proteins Benner et al.

Gu and Li found only small differences in the size distribution of deletions and insertions. When insertions and deletions were treated together, the parameter of the Zipfian length distribution varied from 1. Of note, these early studies were based on small data sets, such that only a few indel events were considered.

In another study that analyzed coding and noncoding indels in 18 mammalian genomes, differences were found both among species and between insertions and deletions: The Zipfian parameter ranged from 1. In all these studies, the indel parameters were inferred based on gap counts.

However, gaps can reflect more than one event, for example, an alignment gap of length 12 can reflect a single insertion event of 12 residues, or many possible combinations involving multiple events, for example, an insertion event of 11 residues followed by another insertion of a single residue, an insertion event of 13 residues followed by a deletion event of a single residue, etc. Counting methods ignore these latter possibilities, similar to parsimony methods that ignore potential multiple substitutions at a single site. Moreover, in approaches only gaps which could be reliably inferred among the analyzed sequences were included.

Often, overlapping gaps were excluded. Selecting only a subset of gaps which conforms to an ad hoc criterion potentially introduces a bias in the collection of indels analyzed. In addition, the accuracy of indel parameter estimates is expected to be positively correlated with the of analyzed indel events. Retaining only reliable indels, usually those occurring between closely related sequences, substantially reduces the amount of information available for indel inference.

Ignoring a large fraction of indel events is especially problematic when the goal is to compare indel dynamics among specific genes. In this case, the of gene-specific indel events is limited, and discarding all unreliable indels from the analysis is expected to lead to poor performance of indel inference approaches. These concerns call for probabilistic-based methods for indel parameter inference. Probabilistic-based models for indels are far less developed compared with substitution models. This might be the case because indel Large insertions tumblr violate the assumption of site independence, thus complicating the computation of the likelihood function Cartwright ; Fletcher and Yang It assumes a Poisson distribution for indel rates and estimates the distribution using the maximum-likelihood paradigm.

The method uses linear regression to find the best-fitted Zipfian distribution for the indel length and takes the average length of the input sequences as the root length. Two additional methods are based on hidden Markov model HMM between pairs of divergent sequences Lunter ; Cartwright In addition, gap lengths were assumed to follow a mixture of geometric distributions. Cartwright used expectation maximization algorithm based on a pairwise HMM for the inference of model parameters. This method assumes independence between indel events and ignores overlapping indels.

These methods were restricted to pairwise sequences, and thus could not distinguish between insertion and deletion rates. Despite the introduction of efficient means to accelerate computations with the long-indel model Levy Karin et al. Keeping the benefit of probabilistic-based approaches without falling to the computational hurdles of likelihood-based methods for inferring indel parameters, ly motivated us to develop SPARTA Levy Karin et al. The ABC framework, first introduced in molecular evolutionary studies for population genetics Beaumont et al.

ABC was successfully employed, for example, for estimation of the effective population size from a sample of microsatellite genotypes Tallmon et al. ABC methodologies thus retain the benefits of analyzing data with explicit probabilistic models, yet overcome computational limitations of inference schemes that rely on explicit inference of the likelihood function.

The underlying indel probabilistic model in SpartaABC assumes that the insertion rate of insertion events per substitution event equals the deletion rate. It further assumes that the length of an insertion of newly introduced nucleotides or amino acids has the exact same distribution as the length of a deletion.

As stated above, these assumptions are known to be an oversimplification of indel dynamics.

In this study, we develop a more realistic alternative by asing different parameters for insertions and deletions. We also apply a model-selection scheme to determine whether the richer model better describes indel evolutionary dynamics compared with the simpler one.

Our demonstrate that the richer model fits a large of empirical biological data sets, lending further statistical support for the hypothesis that deletions are more common than insertions. The parameters of both models are summarized in table 1. In SIM, insertions and deletions are assumed to have the same rates and length distributions. Note that this parameter quantifies the sum of the insertion and the deletion rates, assumed to be equal in this Large insertions tumblr. Qian and Goldstein showed that the frequencies of indels that are several dozens of amino acid long are lower than their expected frequencies, when the expectation is computed based on the length distribution of shorter indels.

In RIM, different indel parameters are ased to insertions and deletions, resulting in five free parameters. Model parameters are inferred using ABC. In this Bayesian inference scheme, prior distributions over model parameters have to be chosen.

We assume the following prior distributions: 1 The indel to substitution rates are assumed to be uniformly distributed in the range [0, 0. We note that increasing the range of the prior distributions had little effect on the not shown.

These components are described in detail below. Here, we first present a general outline of the algorithm. The input required to infer the model parameters for a data set in question is a multiple sequence alignment MSA and its associated rooted phylogenetic tree, including the topology and its associated branch lengths. Next, a large set of MSAs is generated, by repeatedly simulating the evolutionary process along the input phylogenetic tree, with model parameters sampled from the prior.

Summary statistics weights are next computed from a subset of these simulations and are then used to compute distances between the summary statistics of the input MSA and each of the simulated MSAs. A small subset of simulations, for which the distance is very small, is kept. Intuitively, the kept simulations resemble the input data in terms of indel dynamics and can be used to get a point estimate of the model parameters of the data set in question.

The distribution of model parameters used to generate this subset is a good approximation for their posterior distribution Sisson In the above inference scheme, the analyzed empirical alignment is computed using alignment inference tools such as MAFFT Katoh and Standley It is possible that this discrepancy introduces a bias in the inference.

Each point represents a single simulation inference for the corresponding parameter against the real value. Each graph is based on independent simulations. The obtained R 2 values are 0. One possible solution for correcting this bias would be to realign each simulated data set i. This, however, would make the inference procedure enormously CPU intensive. Hence, we tested an alternative approach: We use a machine-learning-regression algorithm to learn how MAFFT distorts each of the summary statistics. We then corrected each summary statistics of each simulated alignment within the ABC inference scheme.

More specifically, given an empirical MSA, its corresponding phylogenetic tree, and a model SIM or RIMwe first generated simulated MSAs, in which model parameters were sampled from the prior distribution see explanations about how sequences are simulated below. In the learning phase, which is done separately for each empirical data set analyzed, we computed the summary statistics for each simulated MSA. Our goal is now to compute a regression model for each summary statistic. This is done by computing a multivariate regression using as predictors the set of 27 summary statistics before the alignment procedure, as well as the model parameters three for SIM and five for RIM.

The response variable of each of these regressions is the value of the summary statistics after the alignment procedure. Thus, 27 regressions Large insertions tumblr computed, one for each summary statistics. An example of summary statistics derived from a simulated data before and after this correction are provided in supplementary table S1Supplementary Material online. To avoid potential overfitting, the regression curves are computed using Lasso Tibshirani with 3-fold cross-validation to determine the regularization parameter.

Depending on the data analyzed, the inclusion of some summary statistics may introduce more noise than al. To this end, for each summary statistics, we computed the Pearson correlation coefficient between its values following MAFFT alignments and the inferred value based on the regression model. We excluded summary statistics for which the correlation coefficient was less than 0. Existing tools for simulating sequences such as DAWG 2. For the purpose of inferring the relevant summary statistics, the information regarding substitutions can be ignored.

Thus, simulations can be performed without substitutions, thereby reducing simulation running times, which are a major component of the ABC inference scheme. In essence, Large insertions tumblr first draw model parameters from the prior, which also provide the length of the root sequence. The location of indels is next drawn uniformly based on the sequence length at the time the event has occurred. We introduce a correction for indels at the boundaries of the sequence. Specifically, assume we draw a deletion of length five.

If the next event occurs at a time which is longer than the branch length, we ignore this event, and set the sequence in the next node to be identical to that of the current sequence. Once the sequences of all leaves are generated, based on the record of all indel events along the tree, the simulated MSA is constructed. A detailed explanation of how simulations are generated is provided in supplementary figure S1, Supplementary Material online.

For studying the distortion of summary statistics introduced by alignment algorithms such as MAFFT, sequences including substitutions must be generated. Only for these alignments, we use the following procedure for simulating the alignments: 1 an alignment without substitutions is generated as described above; 2 an alignment without indels, and with the length of the alignment in 1based on the same tree, is generated using INDELible. S1Supplementary Material online. The 27 summary statistics calculated in the inference scheme are described in table 2.

This list extends the 11 summary statistics ly used by Levy Karin et al. Such summary statistics are influenced by all model parameters, they strongly vary depending Large insertions tumblr the indel rates, the distribution of indel lengths, and the root length. New summary statistics were introduced to help differentiate insertion from deletion events. For example, the 13th summary statistic, that is, of MSA columns that contain a single gap, provides information on deletion rates, as a column with a single gap typically reflects a single deletion event. Another example is the 18th summary statistic, which counts the of MSA columns in which a single-residue gap is found in all but one sequence.

Such a column likely reflects an insertion of a single residue in a branch leading to a leaf of the tree. Notably, such a column may result from a deletion event as well. The ABC approach does not assume that this is certainly an insertion event, but rather, all summary statistics are considered together and their values provide information regarding the posterior probability of the model parameters. We provide an example of a simulated alignment and its associated summary statistics in supplementary figure S1 and table S1Supplementary Material online. The various summary statistics differ in their magnitude, so different weights are required to ensure that all the summary statistics contribute approximately equally to the distance.

The weighted Euclidian distance is calculated for N s simulations. The set of accepted simulations are chosen such that Large insertions tumblr rate of accepted simulations is p of the total simulations Beaumont et al. In this study, the p parameter was set to 0.

To quantify inference accuracy, we computed the R 2 values between the true parameters and the inferred ones, over random different parameter combinations sampled from the prior distribution. The obtained R 2 values were 0. We extended this simulation analysis by repeating the simulation scheme for 12 additional data sets that differ from the one presented in figure 1c with respect to tree topologies, total branch lengths, of species, and sequence length supplementary table S2Supplementary Material online.
