Torrent Generation Goldman 2
Model for iterative primer design for multiplex PCR reactions using NGS. Because the majority of primers do not demonstrate mispriming events, initial primers can be designed and replaced on the basis of iterative mispriming event analyses. NGS, next-generation sequencing.

Jean-Jacques Goldman also had a prominent role in French charity acts from the middle of the 1980s, when in 1985 famous comedian Coluche asked him to write a song to promote the initiative he just created, Les restos du coeur, meant to provide food to poor people during the winter months; Goldman crafted and produced the eponymous song (reportedly written/composed in three days), then with Coluche they brought in other French celebrities (actors Yves Montand, Catherine Deneuve and Nathalie Baye, soccer player Michel Platini, TV host Michel Drucker) to perform it as an extended troupe (akin to "We are the world", each singing a verse, or rather reciting, as none of them were trained singers), called Les Enfoirés (originally a very crude and offensive word, literally translatable as "covered in diarrhea", commonly meaning "the bastards" or "the assholes", which was a gimmick of Coluche in his shows and has been somewhat watered down over the years, akin to "motherfucker"). After Coluche's death in 1986, he took over and became the main organizer of the annual charity concert and record, a role he kept fulfilling until 2016, when he decided to quit, after a song he wrote for that year's charity album, "Toute la vie", sparked controversy for its lyrics, which were deemed "reactionary", with an unfair portrayal of current youth and a pointless opposition between "young" and "old" generations.
Genotyping of the human leucocyte antigen (HLA) is indispensable for various medical treatments. However, unambiguous genotyping is technically challenging due to high polymorphism of the corresponding genomic region. Next-generation sequencing is changing the landscape of genotyping. In addition to high throughput of data, its additional advantage is that DNA templates are derived from single molecules, which is a strong merit for the phasing problem. Although most currently developed technologies use genomic DNA, use of cDNA could enable genotyping with reduced costs in data production and analysis. We thus developed an HLA genotyping system based on next-generation sequencing of cDNA.
Introduction of massively parallel DNA sequencing, namely next-generation sequencing, is changing the landscape of typing. In addition to the high throughput of data, the additional advantage of massively parallel sequencing is that DNA templates are derived from single molecules. This is a strong merit for the phasing problem. There are a number of methods using massively parallel sequencers such as Roche FLX [21, 22], MiSeq [23,24,25], and Ion Torrent PGM [26, 27]. Most of the studies employ PCR for target enrichment, but hybridization capture is also used . Combinations with long-range PCR covering large target regions could potentially perform field 4 level of genotyping.
Instead of long-range PCR for target genomic regions, sequencing of RNA, namely complementary DNA, could be an effective alternative. Because DNA sequences of introns and untranslated regions are not indispensable to deduce protein sequences, the field 3 level is sufficient for HLA typing. Compared with genome sequencing, cDNA sequencing reduces the costs for both data production and analysis, and could be a viable approach for HLA typing [29,30,31]. In genome sequencing, the sequence information of introns and untranslated regions can be utilized for the resolution of phasing ambiguity. In cDNA sequencing, resolution of phasing ambiguity without information intrinsic to genome sequences is often not straightforward because polymorphic regions are often not covered within a single read due to the short read size in next-generation sequencing.
The HLA genotyping system 01 includes generation of sequence data using conventional template preparation and subsequent data analysis to assign HLA types. cDNA was synthesized with random primers to cover the entire region of each HLA gene. For PCR amplification, HLA class I and class II genes were divided into 4 and 3 parts, respectively. Each part was subjected to sequencing from 2 directions, i.e., forward and reverse, and consequently, HLA class I and class II genes were divided into 8 and 6 target regions, respectively. In total, 27 pairs of PCR primers were designed. The primer sequences are shown in Additional file 1: Table S1. Adapters including sequences for indexing samples and sequencing with Ion Torrent PGM were then attached to the PCR products. After the template preparation step, sequencing was performed with Ion Torrent PGM. The details of the experimental process are described in the Materials and Methods section.
HLA typing by next-generation sequencing generally uses genomic DNA as the template source. Because methods based on amplification of individual exons inevitably yield indeterminable haplotypes due to phasing ambiguity, template preparation with long-range PCR is indispensable for typing based on genome sequencing. The major merit of HLA typing based on cDNA sequencing is the short size of the sequencing target regions. The target size in cDNA sequencing is approximately one fifth that of the genomic regions. For example, the size of the entire target regions from genome sequencing of Ozeki et al.  was 46.2 kb, but the size of the corresponding region from our cDNA sequencing was 9.2 kb. One potential demerit is the loss of information from intron regions to identify haplotypes, especially for cases with phase ambiguity. Due to the short read size in next-generation sequencing, resolution of phasing ambiguity is a difficult problem. We solved this problem completely only by improving our data analysis system for most cases. Our data analysis system, the HLA typing system 01 alone, could not complete the level 4 typing with only a single DPB1 case. We therefore introduced complete sequencing of individual molecules with molecular barcodes for DPB1. This technique was originally developed for complete sequencing of individual molecules of viral genomes [38, 39]. Although this sequencing system with molecular barcodes removes all ambiguities in typing, its inclusion in routine typing should be considered carefully because it is labor-intensive and not indispensable for the majority of cases.
Previously, Rothberg had founded 454 Life Sciences, the first so-called "next-generation" DNA sequencing company, which singlehandedly resulted in a dramatic drop in sequencing cost. But 454 was bought by Roche, Rothberg left, and 454 became a niche product used only for certain specialized products.
Figure 2. A general next-generation sequencing (NGS) based genetic testing workflow. This is a general guideline for choosing an NGS strategy for analyzing genetic diseases that do not have any known molecular test. (A) Single gene testing is suitable when the clinical presentations fit a known disease. If the test is inconclusive, PGS, WES or WGS could be the next approach. (B) Panel gene sequencing (PGS), could be used where multiple genes are suspected while (C) (WES) and (D) (WGS) could be implemented if clinical assessments are inconclusive and in cases where there are no known genetic tests. The illustrated workflow was modified from Shashi et al. (2014).
Flow chart of the Haploflow algorithm and its two parts: First, the construction of the deBruijn graph and operations thereon, namely splitting it by connected components and calculating coverages. Then, the creation of the unitig graphs per CC and the assembly process consisting of calculating the thresholds and the coverage histograms and the putative paths through the graphs. Next is the calculation of the concrete flows and thereby the generation of the contigs and finally the cleaning of the graph and the generation of the assembly graphs. As intermediate output, the assembly graph is created during every step (bottom left)
