17 Replaces Page 17 of Setting the sequence-file naming convention in Edit Settings Naming Explanation Using a standard sequence-file naming convention enables ATF to link all EPG for a sample and to analyse the test sequence against the appropriate reference sequence. This section describes how to set the sequence-file naming convention. Delimiter symbols can be used to define the location of the sample name. Example This is an example of a sequence filename: A01[12345_C4_ex2F Delimiters have been used to separate the components of the sequence-file name [ has been used to separate the PCR number (A01) and the sample name (12345) _ has been used to separate the sample name and the locus (C4) _ has also been used to separate the locus and the primer name (ex2f) Set the Naming convention by defining the Sample Delimiters In the example above; The sample name begins with [ The sample name ends with _ Enter [ in the Start : String box Enter _ in the End : String box HLAB has been used as the code to indicate that all sequence filenames with HLAB in them must be analyzed against the HLA-B gene reference sequence. In Library Aliases --- select B from the Library drop down menu Enter HLAB in the Alias box
18 Replaces Page 18 of 50 Click Update Click OK Setting the Naming convention by defining the Sample Name, Library alias positions and word length Note: This method of defining the sequence-file naming convention should only be used if the sample name always starts at the same position within the sequence-file name and is the same length for all samples Using the same example as above ie A01[12345_HLAB_ex2F. The sample name starts at position 5 of the sequence-file name and is 5 characters long. In Sample Delimiters enter 5 in Start:Position and 5 in Length:Position The Library name to be analysed is located at position 11 and is 4 characters long In Library Delimiters enter 11 in Start:Position and 4 in Length:Position Click Update followed by clicking Done 5.3 Setting the data analysis parameters in Settings Engine Explanation Settings Engine.

19 Replaces Page 19 of BCS Limits BCS is Assign-ATFs quality scoring system. A sequence peak can have a BCS quality score between The higher the number the better the sequence quality and the more confidence that the base call is correct. The mean BCS for all positions within an EPG provides an EPG quality score. If a sample is sequenced in both directions a sample can have a mean BCS of The BCS Limits box filters base calling. Positions within a sequence, an EPG or samples will not be analysed unless they have a value above the value entered in the BCS Limits boxes. Enter the appropriate number into each box. Using the default of 0 will result in all data being included. Setting a Base limit value will result in all bases with a score lower than this value not being called and will be assigned a * Setting an EPG limit value will result in the exclusion of an electropherogram if the mean BCS of all positions falls below the value used. Setting a Sample limit will result in the exclusion of a sample if the mean BCS of the sample falls below the value used. After entering the appropriate values click Update and Done Matching Mode Explanation: Two of the main functions of Assign-400ATF are Variant Detection (eg BRCA testing) and Genotyping (eg HepC genotyping). Variant Detection identifies sequence differences between a reference sequence and test sequence. Genotyping compares the test sequence against a library of sequences of alleles to determine to which alleles or combination of alleles the test sequence is best matched. Specifying the application optimizes the analysis. Selecting No Mixed Bases will base call a signal peak either A, C, G or T. This is useful for base calling poor quality hemizygous data Basecaller Explanation: Assign-400ATF has a unique base caller that also includes a normalisation algorithm (Picket Fences) that improves base call accuracy for re-sequencing projects. The Basecaller box enables activation of the Picket Fences algorithm. See 10.1 for a more detailed description of the Picket Fence analysis

The software uses prior base calling information at this position as a guide to the most likely base. This should not be used for variant detection or SNP discovery applications Suggested Applications for Picket Fence Analysis (Check Apply Maps and / or Update Maps) Picket Fence Analysis: High throughput genotyping on optimized data Comparing SNP frequencies on pooled DNA Accurate detection of low level mutations Quality Control of reagents-ensuring equivalent amplification of alleles Genotyping of alleles defined by insertion/deletion polymorphisms Suggested Applications for Non-Picket Fence Analysis (Do NOT Check Apply Maps and / or Update Maps) Non Picket Fence analysis: High throughput SNP screening on non-optimized data, or data of variable quality.

29 Replaces Page 29 of Haplotype specific sequencing of diploid template using haplotype specific sequencing primers Explanation: Assign-ATF contains a unique feature that enables DNA sequencing to be used to identify the haplotypes on which two or more polymorphisms are located. This function works best for genotyping applications where a test sequence is compared with a library of sequences of known variants. This process requires an additional haplotype specific sequencing primer (HSP) with specificity for one of the nucleotides at a heterozygous position. The HSP must then sequence through a neighbouring heterozygous position. Identification of the nucleotide at the neighbouring heterozygous position(s) enables the haplotype to be identified. The operator is required to enter the haploid sequencing primer information in Primers in the Show drop down menu. Select the reference sequence to be edited by clicking Load and browsing to the appropriate reference.xml (usually located in C:\Program Files\Conexio Genomics\Assign\Reference Enter a name for the haploid sequencing primer in the Primer Name drop down menu (ABCD_hap) Select the location of the polymorphism according to location within the reference sequence to which the sequencing primer has specificity and enter in the Start and End boxes. A single nucleotide can be used in which case the start and end position will be the same. In the example above 3 nucleotides at the 3 end of the sequencing primer has been used (Start: 195, End: 197) Enter the sequence that is located between the allocated Start and End positions (CGC) Select Master to indicate that haploid sequencing is being performed on the primary diploid PCR product.
30 Replaces Page 30 of 50 Enter an Alias. This is a name that is included in the sequence filename to enable the software to recognize the sequence file as being an haploid sequencing primer (hap1) The Limit box is required to indicate the limit of the sequencing reaction. This is useful because ATF enables the prediction of the appropriate haplosequencing primer for prospective haplo sequencing. The Limit acts as a filter that will not predict a primer if the other polymorphism is too far away from the sequencing primer THIS FUNCTION IS NOT YET AVAILABLE. Once complete click Add/Update Click Update Reference Click Done Additional Reference Sequence Functions The Max Deletion trims EPG of heterozygous insertion/deletion EPG after the entered number of positions. Indel sequence is particularly hard to base call as the quality deteriorates. Mis-base calls of indel sequence make accurate analysis of indel sequence difficult. Subreference can be used to create a new reference sequence from a region within the reference sequence. For example a subreference that includes a single exon can be created from an existing reference if the exon is nominated as a region within the existing sequence. Trim by Regions only allows analysis of EPG in defined regions. This enables efficient analysis of sequence where the amplification and sequencing primers are located in introns but the reference sequence is a cdna sequence with defined exons (regions). 5.5 Settings Appendix Picket Fences (See Picket Fence analysis is a novel approach to sequence analysis that improves heterozygous base calling and increases the number of applications of DNA sequencing. PF analysis can only be performed on re-sequencing data. Ideally, homozygous peak heights are the same height as each other and heterozygous peaks are 50% of homozygous peak heights. However this is not the case as a result of the variable incorporation rates of di-deoxynucleotide nucleotides. Despite the variable di-deoxynucleotide incorporation rates between positions within a sequence, the incorporation rate at any one position within a sequence is highly reproducible between different samples. As a result a homozygous base at any position within a sequence has a predicted peak height. PF analysis
31 Replaces Page 31 of 50 presents the sequence the peak heights of an electropherogram relative to the expected homozygous peak height. As a result, homozygous peaks are usually the same height and heterozygous peak heights are 50% of homozygous peaks. Base calling is then performed on this data resulting in an increase in heterozygous base calling accuracy. Conventional Electropherogram Analysis Picket Fence Analysis Sequence Electropherogram Quality: The Base Call Score (BCS) The BCS or Base Call Score is the basic unit of Assigns quality assessment system. The BCS reflects the integrity of the peak shape, the background and the separation from neighbouring peaks. The perfect peak will have a BCS of 50. The BCS of a consensus sequence is an accumulation of the BCS that constitute the consensus sequence. The BCS does not discriminate against heterozygous base calls as a result the mean BCS and the degree of variability of BCS between positions are markers of sequence quality for a sequence electropherogram or a sample. Assign uses shades of white to red to indicate the BCS for sequence position, an electropherogram or a sample. Boxes above sequence base calls indicate the BCS of the base call. Shading of the sample ID indicates the mean BCS of the sample and shading of the electropherogram map above the sequence indicates the mean BCS of the electropherogram.

Text sequences and electropherogram sequence can be imported into Assign-ATF. Sequence can be imported as individual files or by directory, including subdirectories. Importing sequences by directories enables high throughput analysis. Filters can be applied for specific importing of sequences. eg all sequences with the same sample name can be imported if they exist within the selected folders. This is useful for comparing sequences from the same individual over time or importing sequences from different loci for the same patient. 6.2 Importing Sequences by Directory Browse to the directory (directories) Check the Import All Subdirectories box of all subdirectories are to be imported. Click on Go

To import multiple sequences use the Shift or Alt keys and click to select the sequences, then double click to import. 6.4 Importing Sequences Using the Filter Function Proceed as described for importing sequences by directory (See above) To filter by name, enter the sample name in Filters:Name (the sample names must be identical in the region defined by the naming settings as the sample identifier To filter by locus, enter the locus code in Filters:Code To filter by Primer select the primer name Only sequences with the appropriate filter will be imported 7 Sequence Analysis and Editing 7.1 The Analysis Screen Explanation The Analysis Screen comprises 3 main panes that include the sample ID s, the electropherogram data and the mismatches with the reference sequence. Sequence electropherograms can be viewed and edited. Edits result in real time updates of the result screen.
34 Replaces Page 34 of The Sample Pane Each box is a different sample. The sample highlighted in blue is the active sample. The active electropherogram and the genotype result relate to this sample. Moving between the samples is performed using the up down arrows on the keyboard, the up down arrows on the Navigator (see below) or by clicking the appropriate sample Moving between samples simultaneously updates the electropherogram and the genotype panes The white to red shading is an indicator of quality of all sequences for the sample. The more red shading the box the poorer the quality of the sequences for this sample The green boxes enable report selecting. Checking the green boxes will remove the sample from the report and turn the box orange in colour The orange and yellow boxes alert the operator to samples with QC warnings. Orange boxes have a QC warning whereas yellow boxes don t have a QC warning Boxes headed 1, 2 and R refer to the operator level review. Checking the boxes indicates sign off by the reviewers of different levels of authority. Box 1 is for the first reviewer, Box 2 is for the second reviewer The Electropherogram (EPG) Pane Highlighted positions Positions that differ between the test sequence and the reference sequence Autoedited positions Manually edited positions Confirmed base calls Manually selected variant positions Sequenced regions Differences v reference Position within the references sequence Annotation Consensus sequence and quality indicator Electropherogram Includes sequence filename and signal intensity Active sequence position Electropherogram sequence and quality indicator
35 Replaces Page 35 of Migrating through the sequence EPG is performed clicking on the EPG pane and using the arrows on the key pad Using the Navigator (See below) Clicking on the Bus and dragging it across the sequence The Navigator The Navigator enables sequence editing, moving between samples and moving between positions within a sequence Editing using the Navigator Keypad Base calls are edited on the keypad. The bases present at the active sequence position is highlighted on the keypad. Editing is performed by selecting non highlighted bases or unselecting the highlighted bases. In this example, if A was the correct base, clicking C (unselecting the C base call) would also unselect M. The + and keys allow including or removing insertions (+) or deletions (-) Priority Editing Priority Editing enables examination of base calls at positions: that have a low BCS by selecting the BCS box that have been edited by selecting the Edits box that are mismatched with any of the allele combinations in the results table by selecting the MM box that are nominated as variants (to the right of MM)
36 Replaces Page 36 of 50 Moving to positions for Priority Editing is performed by selecting the or buttons Selecting either button moves the Bus either left or right by one position. Selecting either button the bus to the beginning of the sequence or to the end Selecting either button moves to the sample above or below The Master drop down menu enables the operator to move between the diploid sequence to haploid sequences when haplotype specific sequences are used The Exon 3 (example only) drop down menu enables to operator to move to different regions within the sequence. This menu will include all regions annotated for the reference sequence Moving to specific codons and positions within the sequence that are mismatched with the library or reference sequence Typing and clicking the arrow button results in moving the active position to codon 163, position 1. Selecting the drop down menu containing 487 will list the positions that are mismatched with the reference sequence or library. Selecting any of these positions will move the active position to this location to confirm the base call. Clicking OK confirms the base call and moves to the next priority editing position

Right clicking the mouse on a sample provides additional editing functions Show Comments selecting Show Comments provides a quality report of a sample with poor consensus quality in the format show below Edit Comments enables comments regarding the sample to be entered Reanalyse Removes all sequence edits for all samples and reanalyses the data. Used if the analysis settings have been changed after EPG have been imported Add New Samples enables the addition of new samples Remove Sample enables the removal of samples Remove All- enables all samples to be removed Autoedit Selecting auto-edits runs the Autoedit function if this function has not already been selected in Settings Add Sequences Enables the addition of the test sequence to the library of allele sequences Add All Sequence Enables the addition of all sequences in the layout to the sequence library Update Reference Enables the sequence of the active sample to be used as the reference sequence and all samples within the layout to be reanalysed against the new reference sequence.
38 Replaces Page 38 of Editing in the EPG pane Explanation Right clicking on the mouse in the EPG field enables additional editing functions of the EPG Selecting: Set Start Base trims sequence from the EPG to the left of the cursor Set End Base trims sequence from the EPG to the right of the cursor Show Warnings results in the issuing of a quality warning Autoedit results in autoediting of the sequence Less sensitivity results in a reanalysis of an EPG after reducing the detection limit. This function is very effective for improving base call accuracy of data with high background Reanalyse results in the reimporting and reanalysis of the EPG. Can also be used to replace an incorrectly trimmed EPG. This function is useful for data free of background to accurately detect low level mutations More sensitivity results in a reanalysis of an EPG after increasing the detection limit Remove EPG results in the complete removal of an EPG Add Variant results in the addition of a variant to a report Add All Variants results in the addition of all variants for an EPG to a report Add Sequences results in the addition of the sequence to the library 7.3 Additional Functions
39 Replaces Page 39 of Zooming the EPG The EPG can be enlarged by pressing the Shift key and the up/down or left/right arrows on the computer keyboard Hiding the EPG Simultaneously pressing the computer keyboard Shift key and one of the letters representing the 4 bases will remove the trace of this base from the EPG. Repeating this procedure will return the trace. This function is useful if heterozygous peaks are perfectly overlaid and the base call requires confirmation Expanding the EPG Window Pane Boundaries Clicking the Pane Boundaries and holding the mouse key enables the movement of the Pane Boundaries to expand or contract the EPG view 7.4 Sequence View Options
40 Replaces Page 40 of 50 Explanation The View option allows switching between EPG and aligned text sequence of each sample. Viewing the sample text sequence enables high throughput SNP. Select Consensus to view the sample text sequences Select Consensus to view the sample text sequences Each text sequence corresponds to the sample in the Sample Pane Sequences that are different from the reference sequences are highlighted
41 Replaces Page 41 of Select Dots after selecting consensus to view only those sequences that differ from the reference sequence Select Quality to view the sample text sequences and BCS Each text sequence corresponds to the sample in the Sample Pane Colour coding indicates quality and the BCS. White is good quality and high BCS, red is poor quality and low BCS Suggested Applications for Consensus sequence and Quality view Assign s ability to import thousands of sequence, its accurate and novel approach to base calling and the simple switch between EPG and sample text sequence simplifies high throughput SNP screening
42 Replaces Page 42 of Select Alignment to view the sequences of the best matched alleles The sequence of the selected sample (blue in the sample pane) is always at the top of the list and contains highlighted sequence that differs from the reference sequence All sequences below the sample sequence are the sequences of the corresponding allele combinations in the results pane Highlighted allele combination sequences are sequence differences between the allele combination and the selected sample sequence 8 Reports Explanation Assign enables 4 possible report formats 1) A variant report for applications where test sequence is compared with a single reference sequence 2) A genotype report for genotyping applications when matching a sample sequence against a library of known sequences. 3) A FASTA report that provides a fasta file of sequences from all samples in the Assign layout 4) A Quality (BCS) report that enables a quality control analysis of samples within the Assign layout and for all layouts within a specific directory Contact us regarding custom reports

48 Replaces Page 48 of Quality Report The Quality Report section enables the generation of longitudinal quality control plots. The mean BCS and standard deviation for an EPG is a quality score for that EPG. Similarly the mean BCS and standard deviation for a sample is a quality score for a sample. Plotting the BCS for all samples is an effective way of performing sequencing quality control. Assign will perform a quality analysis on all saved layouts within a Selected Folder or specific saved projects by using Get Projects. This enables Assign to be used solely as a Sequencing Quality Control software. The quality report produces an excel file containing worksheets with quality data.
