PacBio SMRT Sequencing – Have your cake and eat it too – High Accuracy and Long Reads!

PacBio provides the most comprehensive view of human genomes and transcriptomes. Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT®) sequencing delivers long continuous reads, high consensus accuracy, uniform coverage and epigenetic characterization. Kevin will be discussing the latest developments to the PacBio® technology including highlighting the dramatic results of genome sequencing using 99.9% accurate (QV30) >10kb reads. You’ll learn how this revolutionary approach boosts yields, streamlines analysis and allows for simultaneous SNV, InDeL and SV detection with phasing all on a single platform. He’ll also delve into how these changes affect full length isoform sequencing and targeted (amplicon) approaches.
