Application Brief: Low-coverage, long-read whole genome sequencing for structural variation – Best Practices

With the Sequel System, you can affordably and sensitively characterize structural variation (SV) of all types ranging in size from tens to thousands of basepairs. Low-coverage, long-read whole genome sequencing (WGS) data provides rapid discovery of common SVs for population genetics studies and resolves rare SVs unique to an individual, with a very low false-discovery rate.

Product Note: Fast, high-resolution DNA sizing with the fragment analyzer system

The Fragment Analyzer instrument is a fast, high-resolution benchtop capillary electrophoresis (CE) platform that utilizes proprietary markers to accurately size fragments ranging from 10 bp up to 50 kb. This platform allows important DNA quality checkpoints to be completed in 1 hour for de novo large-genome sequencing projects and other PacBio applications leveraging multi-kilobase read lengths. The instrument can be used in place of time- consuming QC steps involving Pulsed Field Gel Electrophoresis (PFGE), saving time by avoiding multiple overnight gel runs when preparing large-insert SMRTbell libraries. Alternative DNA-sizing instruments cannot accurately resolve large DNA fragments in this range.

Application Brief: Long-read RNA sequencing – Best Practices

With Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing and the Sequel System, you can easily and affordably sequence transcript isoforms of up to 10 kb in their entirety. The lso-Seq method allows users to generate full-length cDNA sequences — with no assembly required — in order to confidently characterize the full complement of transcript isoforms within targeted genes, or across an entire trenscriptome.

Application Note: Targeted sequencing and chromosomal haplotype assembly using Cergentis TLA technology with SMRT Sequencing

The Targeted Locus Amplification (TLA) Technology from Cergentis enables the targeted, hypothesis-neutral, amplification of any genomic locus of interest over 50 kb using just one primer pair complementary to a short locus-specific sequence. TLA is a strategy to selectively amplify complete loci on the basis of crosslinking physically proximal sequences. Unlike other targeted sequencing methods, TLA works without prior detailed locus information, as one primer pair is sufficient to amplify tens to hundreds of kilobases of DNA surrounding that locus. In a separate application of TLA, the unamplified template can be used for genome-wide phasing and assembly. TLA enables targeted…

Application Note: Multiplex target enrichment using barcoded multi-kilobase fragments and probe-based capture technologies

Target enrichment capture methods allow scientists to rapidly interrogate important genomic regions of interest for variant discovery, including SNPs, gene isoforms, and structural variation. Custom targeted sequencing panels are important for characterizing heterogeneous, complex diseases and uncovering the genetic basis of inherited traits with more uniform coverage when compared to PCR-based strategies. With the increasing availability of high-quality reference genomes, customized gene panels are readily designed with high specificity to capture genomic regions of interest, thus enabling scientists to expand their research scope from a single individual to larger cohort studies or population-wide investigations. Coupled with PacBio long-read sequencing, these…
