PacBio scientist Dr. Jenny Ekholm discusses the role of CYP2D6 gene in drug metabolism and how SMRT Sequencing is playing in understanding it.
STAT featured the work of Stanford and PacBio in solving a medical mystery, made possible only with PacBio long reads.
Stanford scientists have used long-read sequencing to diagnose a patient’s rare genetic condition that other technology failed to diagnose.
More coverage of the Genetics in Medicine paper by Stanford and PacBio describing a clinical genetics case solved with PacBio long reads.
The Human Genome is still not finished because of limits of previous technology, but PacBio technology is now helping to close the gaps.
A groundbreaking project from the DOE is attempting to shine light on the unexplored branches of the tree of life by sequencing large numbers of unknown microbial genomes.
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory scientists published an improved reference genome for maize based on PacBio sequencing.
Scientists published a new reference genome assembly for maize with SMRT Sequencing and other technologies, called “a major leap forward”.
Mt. Sinai is one of the largest users of PacBio sequencing and plan to continue this trend as they spin out a new commercial venture, Seme4.
A model for climate change, the sunflower’s genome has been cracked by a team applying SMRT Sequencing to resolve long & similar repeat regions.
PacBio’s Swati Ranade writes about the promise of using SMRT Sequencing for full-length HLA typing in transplant patients.
PacBio sequencing was used to identify an uncommon strain of klebsiella pneumoniae circulating in Houston.
PacBio single-molecule sequencing was used to study Utricularia gibba, enabling the scientists to build a better genome by generating individual strings of bladderwort DNA more than 40 times longer than before.
Metabolomics provides a molecular measurement of phenotype, or the characteristics resulting from the genotype’s interaction with the environment. Using a range of analytical tools to scale the mountains of data collected, scientists use metabolomics to understand systems biology.
PacBio moved into a new larger space in Menlo Park Labs, signing a 10-year lease for a 180,000-square-foot building that includes offices and R&D space.
