At ASM Microbe 2017, SMRT Sequencing Advances Microbial Applications

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

We can’t wait for ASM Microbe! It’s one of the largest microbiology conferences in the world and is taking place June 1-5 in New Orleans. With more than 10,000 people expected to attend, it’s a key event for connecting with this community, hearing the latest scientific and clinical advances, and introducing microbial experts to the opportunities afforded by long-read SMRT Sequencing.

If you’ll be at the conference, please stop by booth #1328 to meet the PacBio team. We will be happy to provide updates on the newest enhancements coming to SMRT Sequencing in the next few months. One of those involves multiplexing bacterial sequencing to get results from many different organisms in a single SMRT Cell — exciting stuff!

This year’s meeting will feature several talks and posters using PacBio data to help monitor infectious disease, investigate metagenomes, characterize viruses and more. Here is the full list of posters – don’t miss Jessica Sieber, winner of the 2016 SMRT Grant Program, who will be presenting data in her poster on June 3rd at 12:15 pm.
