Whole Genome Sequencing of clonal expansions of single healthy somatic cells (human, female)

HSC73_clone: Bone marrow mononuclear cells from the healthy 73 years old female were thawed and labeled with Alexa-Fluor 488-conjugated anti-CD34 (581, Biolegend), Alexa-Fluor 700-conjugated anti-CD38 (HIT2, eBioscience), a cocktail of APC-conjugated lineage antibodies consisting of anti-CD4 (RPA-T4), anti-CD8 (RPA-T8), anti-CD11b (ICRF44), anti-CD20 (2H7), anti-CD56 (B159, all BD Biosciences), anti-CD14 (61D3), anti-CD19 (HIB19) and anti-CD235a (HIR2, all eBiocience) and 1 micro-gram/ml propidium iodide (Sigma). Using a BD FACSAria cell sorter, single Lin-CD34+CD38-PI- cells were individually sorted into low-adhesion 96-well tissue culture plates (Corning) containing 100micro-litre of StemSpan Serum-Free Expansion Medium (Stemcell technologies) supplemented with 100ng/ml of human SCF and FLT-3L, 50ng/ml of human TPO, 20ng/ml of human IL-3, IL-6 and G-CSF (all cytokines from Peprotech) and 50U/ml of penicillin and 50μg/ml of streptomycin (Sigma). Cells were incubated at 37 degrees C in a humidified atmosphere with 5% CO2 in air. After 5 days in culture, another 100micro litres of cytokine-containing medium were added. 13 days after seeding, clones B6 and G2 had expanded to approx. 105 cells and were selected for whole genome sequencing (2x101bp, paired-end, Illumina HiSeq2500) after tagmentation-based library preparation (see Extended Experimental Procedures) for clone B6 and standard library preparation for clone G2. For germline-control ~106 unsorted bone marrow mononuclear cells from the same donor were used for sequencing. An average of 30-fold sequence coverage for each the clones and the matching control were obtained.L4clone: A progenitor cell clone was raised from a peripheral blood sample of the 39 year old healthy female. Frozen peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were isolated from 2 ml heparinised peripheral blood via Ficoll Paque density centrifugation. A methylcellulose assay was performed as described earlier (Weisse et al., 2012). In brief, non-adherent mononuclear cells were incubated in the presence of the recombinant human cytokines IL-3, IL-5 and GM-CSF (R&D systems) over 14 days to induce colony formation. Colonies were detected under an inverted light microscope, and plucked by a pipette when colonies had approximately 10,000 cells/CFU. Each colony was washed three times in PBS and finally frozen as a cell pellet in -80 degrees C. Genomic DNA was isolated using the QIAamp DNA micro kit according to the instructions of the manufacturer (Qiagen, Hilden, Germany). Whole genome sequencing (2x101bp, paired-end, Illumina HiSeq2500) was performed for colony 4 after tagmentation-based library preparation and resulted in 15-fold sequence coverage for each the colony and the matching whole blood.
