The complexity of a genome, and especially its repetitive content (Reinert, Langmead, Weese, & Evers, 2015; Goodwin et al., 2016), imposes significant challenges for sequence assembly (Treangen & Salzberg, 2011; Baker, 2012; Ekblom & Wolf, 2014; Ellegren, 2014). The second generation of sequencing technologies appeared between 2005 and 2010 with the development of “sequencing‐by‐synthesis” and innovative high‐throughput systems (i.e., 454‐pyrosequencing, Illumina, Ion‐Proton). (2015)). The importance of a proper planning of sequencing approaches for the study of local adaptation has been brought into sharp focus by a recent debate on the power of RAD‐seq for the detection of adaptive genetic variation in natural populations. Greater computing resources (i.e., computer cluster or computing facilities in the cloud) are required for larger genomes (≥1 GB), specially for SNP calling, MBs per sample (depending on genome size and depth), GBs per individual (depending on genome size and depth), Thousands (without reference), hundreds of thousands (with reference genome), Mostly SNPs, inversions when a reference genome is available, SNPs, INDELs detected but not used in software, some SVs (depending on genome coverage per individual), Mostly neutral and sometimes functional (depending on marker density), Individual SNP genotypes (based on coverage), Population‐level allele frequency per SNP (based on read counts per variant site), Population‐level genotype likelihood (based on reads of multiple individuals in a population), Possibility to do individual‐based analyses, No, individual information is missed during library preparation, No, reliable individual SNP calls cannot be obtained from low‐coverage data, Genome‐scale phylogenetic tree of 48 species representing all orders of Neoaves, Illumina HiSeq 2000, Roche 454, pair‐end libraries of different insert sizes, 24×–160×, Genome‐scale phylogenetic relationships that indicate functional evolution and leaf‐eating dietary adaptations, Illumina HiSeq, 30× huWGR, 146× de novo assembly, multiple paired‐end and mate‐pair libraries spanning size range of 180 bp to 20 kb, Lack of unique ancestry in eastern and red wolves, Illumina HiSeq, paired‐ and single‐end sequencing libraries, average insert size of 300 to 500 bp, 4–29×, Marker development including complete chloroplast genome, a nearly complete rDNA cistron and 5S rDNA sequence, a partial mitochondrial genome sequence and some single copy ortholog genes, Primer design of phylogenetic markers in the plant genus based on annotation and gene prediction of more than 10,000 contigs, Genetic differentiation between parent taxa, complex admixture history involving intermittent but multiple hybridization events that did not indicate fitness reduction in hybrids, Illumina HiSeq, for huWGR, 2.09×–19.6×, paired‐end 100‐bp reads, Multiple demographic events including population expansion, bottlenecks and divergence, human activities most likely contributed to decline in the last 3000 years, llumina HiSeq2000 platform and 100‐bp paired‐end reads, 4.7×, Differentiations between pairs of contemporary allopatric and sympatric ecotypes most likely are the consequence of ecological divergence and genetic drift resulting from bottlenecks experienced during past founder events, Illumina HiSeq 2000 platform using single‐read 100‐bp chemistry, 2×, Western palearctic black‐and‐white flycatchers of the genus, Most recent common ancestor of the four species dates back to 1–2 million years (Mya) ago and each species followed separated evolutionary paths involving population growth, decline (~100–200 thousand years ago) and expansion, HiSeq 2000, paired‐end 100 bp, insert size ~450 bp, ≥20×, Historical events such as domestication or modern breeding are related with population decline, Genetic differentiation between subspecies that coincides with geography. Second, allele frequency estimation is susceptible to multiple factors including uneven representation of individual DNA in a pool, and sequencing and mapping errors. Charts c and d were made based on the “assembly level” annotation associated with each genome listed in the Genome browser of GenBank (, Schematic illustration of the general WGR workflow. Using specialized software, the sequence of each fragment is assembled into a contiguous sequence (NIH, The understanding of the complexity of the genome gained in the Human Genome Project (1990–2003) (Human Genome Research Institute (NIH),, coupled with advances in molecular techniques and equipment set the stage for the beginning of the “genomic era” two decades ago. With the ability to sequence more than a million DNA fragments at a time, the next-generation sequencing (NGS) has revolutionized the ability to generate large volumes of sequence data at an extremely low cost. (2014). For example, using huWGR, Jarvis, Zhang, and Li (2014) compared 48 modern bird species for the reconstruction of their phylogeny. Time investment into optimizing read mapping parameters before SNP calling is thus recommended. Are there limitations to WES and WGS testing? The recommendation is thus to test different parameter combinations and thresholds to optimize these filters. Using the default ploidy (2) leads the software to call only the 2 most common alleles in a pool, as ploidy assumes 50/50 allele frequency (, accessed June 2017). The effect of factor (iv) can be minimized by excluding structural variants during variant calling (Kofler, Orozco‐terWengel et al., 2011), although this type of variation should be included in genome scans for the detection of outlier loci or the characterization of the genetic basis of traits. Long reads from third‐generation sequencing can help overcome these limitations by resolving difficult parts of the genome (i.e., repetitive sequences and SVs) and by allowing the direct phasing of haplotypes. SNPs are not called in lcWGR, instead, per‐site genotype likelihoods are calculated using software like angsd (Korneliussen et al., 2014). As phylogenomic inference relies on haplotypes, this kind of analysis cannot be performed using Pool‐seq data but will be benefited by advances in hrWGR methods with long‐read data. Each mapping algorithm calculates the MQ score differently (Ruffalo, Koyutürk, Ray, & LaFramboise, 2012) for which scores should not be compared between programs. (2016); Bleidorn (2016). Ongoing genome projects are listed in GenBank in the Bioprojects webpage ( and in the Genomes Online Database (GOLD) ( (Mukherjee et al., 2017). The bacteria then can be grown to produce identical copies, or “clones,” containing approximately 150,000 base pairs of the genome that is desired to be sequenced. For some conservation areas described above, the benefit of a dense and large number of markers is not clear. A population genomics study can be based on the analysis of individual sequence data (individual‐based approaches) or on the analysis of the sequences of a group of individuals as a whole (population‐based approaches). There are currently two techniques: (i) high‐coverage haplotype‐unresolved individual WGR (huWGR) and (ii) high‐coverage haplotype‐resolved individual WGR (hrWGR). These settings make the algorithms run faster at the expense of missing low‐frequency alleles in multi‐allelic loci ( This forum,, can offer some insight on hard filtering using gatk. In the first three, polymorphic site detection is based on per‐site read coverage and quality per individual or population, whereas in the latter, it is based on coverage and quality of all the reads covering a site from several individuals in a given sample. Thus, Pool‐seq can be a fast and affordable initial approach for the assessment of rare variants in large‐scale association studies. Genetic variation has traditionally been examined using from a single to a handful (12–24) of molecular markers including allozymes, mitochondrial DNA and microsatellites (see review by Allendorf (2016)). Within parentheses, we denote in the title of each conservation area, which WGR approach (huWGR, hrWGR, Pool‐seq or lcWGR) applies. If you do not receive an email within 10 minutes, your email address may not be registered, As mentioned, repetitive sequences and large structural variants are difficult to assemble using just short reads. RNA‐seq is thus mostly used as a cost‐effective approach for gene expression quantification but also for the comparison of variants at genes being transcribed in a particular time/tissue (reviewed by Ozsolak and Milos (2011)). Though we know less about the areas of the genome that are not responsible for coding for proteins (see our articles about ’junk’ DNA and unlocking the secrets of the genome), there are disease-causing variants outside the exome. DNA is first fragmented to a particular length and sequenced to a certain coverage depending on the sequencing platform. The main advantage of lcWGR is the low sequencing depth targeted per individual (~1–4×) that facilitates the analysis of a large number of samples per population; however, one library needs to be prepared for each individual (Figure 2). However, this type of data can help in the identification of the genetic basis of phenotypic traits associated with inbreeding depression, as it has been used for the characterization of genetic variation underlying diseases (Rafati et al., 2016) and phenotypic traits in inbred organisms (Fleming et al., 2016). (b) lcWGR, starts with the preparation of a single sequencing library per individual, each with its own barcode (represented as ten different colours of short read). Such high marker density is crucial for the identification of genetic signatures of selection such as reduced nucleotide diversity, extended linkage disequilibrium and high homozygosis (Ellegren, 2014). DNA quality is assessed with ~0.8%–1% agarose gel electrophoresis and a 25‐Kbp molecular weight ladder. 2020 Dec 23;11:555071. doi: 10.3389/fpls.2020.555071. A known set of variants is required, but in its absence, an iterative bootstrapping approach can be followed instead (Tung, Zhou, Alberts, Stephens, & Gilad, 2015; Snyder‐Mackler et al., 2016). There are several reasons for the limited detection of DNA variants using RNA-Seq . Based on the analysis of genetic variation of individuals and populations, genetics has provided insights on diverse areas in conservation biology including species identification, hybridization, kinship, evolutionary history, effective population size (Ne), population substructure, population connectivity, adaptive genetic variation, local adaptation and inbreeding (Hedrick & Miller, 1992; von der Heyden et al., 2014; Haig et al., 2016). Land plants have also a great proportion of genomes at the chromosome and contig level. The diluting liquid should stabilize and protect DNA from damage (e.g., lowTE). Sequence ontology terms can be annotated to variants in a VCF file using for instance, vcfanno (Pedersen et al., 2016), annovar (Yang & Wang, 2015) or snpeff (Cingolani et al., 2012) programs. Several kits for library preparation are available commercially. In population‐based approaches, the goal is obtaining population‐level genomic data (e.g., allele frequencies or genotype likelihoods) from several individuals analysed as a whole and sequenced to a high or a low depth (Buerkle & Gompert, 2013), to offset the cost of obtaining high‐coverage per individual.  |  We discuss proposed ways to minimize such biases. (ii) The objective of WGR is instead, to compare genomic variability among individuals or populations. The number and quality of markers can be significantly improved, though, when the reference genome is available (Ozsolak & Milos, 2011; Warr et al., 2015; Jones & Good, 2016; Andrews et al., 2016). In addition, Catchen et al. (2011). This knowledge is crucial for conservation biology because of the importance of functional genetic diversity potentially linked with persistence in novel environments (Allendorf et al., 2010). Genome assembly is accomplished with the joining of paired‐end short reads (~100 bp) of various DNA libraries with different insert sizes (350 bp–40 kilobases—Kb). For the first period, they analysed 5 populations and detected two million SNPs. In this image, paired‐end reads are represented by a rectangular shape with bases at both ends but not in the middle. The successful implementation of conservation plans relies on the correct identification of the taxonomic status of organisms target of protection (Mace, 2004). doi: 10.1016/j.heliyon.2020.e05583. For example, in human genetics studies for the detection of small effect variants associated with rare diseases, even the screening of thousands of individuals has not provided enough power to detect and track such variation (Agarwala, Flannick, Sunyaev, & Altshuler, 2013; Lee, Abecasis, Boehnke, & Lin, 2014; Moutsianas et al., 2015). with average depth of ~5× and ~42× for 2 samples, Illumina, Hiseq2000, paired‐end reads 2× 100 bp, ~56×, Large chromosomal inversion underlines the variety of male mating morphs, 15 independent and 9 satellite males from a single location, Illumina HiSeq 2000, 2× 125 bp paired‐end reads, average fragment size ~500 bp, average ~8×, (huWGR): 80× for 5 ind. They found genetic differentiation between parent taxa and enough evidence to infer a complex admixture history involving intermittent but multiple hybridization events that did not indicate fitness reduction in hybrids. (. Three major sequencing generations have taken place thus far. Given that in general we do not know how selection is acting on a particular species, life stage, tissue or part of the genome, WGR should be considered as a starting point for the exploration of genomic diversity assuming sufficient funding and a reference genome are available. Potential solutions to these limitations are discussed in Box 4. Given the increased interest in the use of genomics in conservation biology, in this review, we first provide a general background on sequencing technologies and whole‐genome sequencing (Box 1). In RNA‐seq studies, care needs to be taken during sampling collection, sequencing and data processing. Exome sequencing of parent-child trios can reveal when an apparently healthy parent actually has the same mutation as the sick child, but for some reason escaped the genetic fate. (Ouborg et al., 2010; Allendorf et al., 2010; McMahon et al., 2014). vonHoldt et al., (2016) sequenced 28 wolf genomes to demonstrate that two endemic species of the North American wolf (the red wolf and the eastern wolf) are actually hybrids of coyote and grey wolf. Thanks to three anonymous reviewers that helped improve this manuscript. Per‐base quality scores obtained from sequencers often present errors. Hedrick et al. Another advantage of WGR approaches is that they examine multiple types of genetic variation including structural variations (SVs; i.e., deletions, insertions, chromosomal rearrangements, copy number variation, Alkan, Coe, & Eichler, 2011) and mutations in regulatory elements (REs; i.e., noncoding regions that regulate gene expression and function, Wray, 2007). (i) In huWGR, short‐read data per individual results in unphased individual genotypes that are used for subsequent analyses. We thank Leif Andersson, Sangeet Lamichhaney, Nima Rafati and Alvaro Martínez‐Barrio (Uppsala University) for training on Pool‐seq. A subset of these loci can be used for the development of cost‐effective genotyping tools suitable for the assessment of diverse aspects of interest in conservation and management (e.g., taxonomic status, hybrids, sex, carriers of genetic diseases, population structure, individual assignment and population of origin, among others).

Assuming 50 diploid individuals are mixed, pool ploidy is 100. This, along with the still high cost of shotgun sequencing and the large demand for computing resources and storage, has limited their implementation in nonmodel species with scarce genomic resources and in fields such as conservation biology. Metagenomics is the study of genetic material recovered directly from environmental samples. An excess of missing data can also bring convergence problems that impact the accuracy of many calculations including the individual admixture analysis implemented in ngsadmix (Skotte, Korneliussen, & Albrechtsen, 2013).
