      Editor’s Assessment

      Hybrid genomes are tricky to assemble, and few genomic resources are available for hybrid grapevines such as ‘Chambourcin’, a French-American interspecific hybrid grape grown in the eastern and midwestern United States. Here is an attempt to assemble Chambourcin’ using a combination of PacBio HiFi long-reads, Bionano optical maps, and Illumina short-read sequencing technologies. Producing an assembly with 26 scaffolds, an N50 length 23.3 Mb and an estimated BUSCO completeness of 97.9% that can be used for genome comparisons, functional genomic analyses, and genome-assisted breeding research. Error correction and pilon polishing was a challenge with this hybrid assembly, but after trying a few different approaches in the review process have improved it, and as they have documented what they did and are clear about the final metrics, users can assess the quality themselves.

      This assessment refers to version 2 of this preprint.

      Summary: The manuscript by Rae et al. reports a new protocol for labeling genetically-tagged proteins of interest with heavy atom particles for visualization by electron microscopy. The optimized protocol builds on the use of the enzyme APEX2, fused to the target protein of interest. The contrast enhancement may be useful in diverse 3D EM techniques. Also, reviewers were enthusiastic about the prospects for quantitative studies, even for low-levels of endogenous expression. Semi-quantitative studies may be enabled because the new method appears to improve the proportionality of the signal such that the number of APEX2 tags in a sample correlates with the number of heavy atom particles. The apparent simplicity of the protocol raises the potential for it to become a standard in the field of EM labeling.

      Evaluation Summary:

      Tracking horizontal gene transfer of mobile resistance genes is exceptionally important in the context of AMR and its burden on public health. An accessible high-throughput technique that provides an alternative to Hi-C or single-cell whole genome sequencing for associating mobile antibiotic resistance genes with their bacterial hosts in complex microbial populations is an important development for the field. The method introduced here, which relies on cellular emulsion and fusion PCR in one step, is an improvement over the previously published epicPCR. In addition, the method can be applied to other studies on complex microbial communities beyond antibiotic resistance.
