Sequence your targets
Targeted sequencing is a powerful way to increase the cost-effectiveness of variant discovery and detection. To generate a full view of relevant targets, you need complete and uniform coverage across regions of interest. Unfortunately, short-read sequencing data is prone to mis-mapping and often fails to span repeats. Additionally, PCR-related bias can result in insufficient coverage for variant calling in GC-rich regions1.
Access the full spectrum of genetic variation
Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing combines single-molecule observation, long-read sequencing, and the lowest degree of bias to fully characterize genetic complexity — including structural variation, rare SNPs, indels, copy number variation, microsatellites, haplotypes, and phasing. Through targeted sequencing on the PacBio Systems, you move beyond simply cataloging SNPs and target all types of variation across relevant genomic regions, including low complexity regions like repeat expansions, promoters, and flanking regions of transposable elements.
