Delivering a more complete view of genetic diversity

A deeper understanding of the genetics underlying biological traits is a key factor in resolving many agricultural, industrial, and environmental challenges.

Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing delivers a complete view of genetic diversity in large and highly complex plant and animal genomes and is ideal for those engaged in evolutionary studies and agricultural genomics. This technology drives research discovery and reveals the valuable insights needed to support the improvement of crop, livestock, and industrial products.

The PacBio Systems are suited for a wide range of applications and provide scientists with the ability to:

02_AgBioSpot01

Explore evolution and diversity in high resolution

Often only a single, fragmented reference genome is available for a species, genus, or even family, limiting discovery potential. Past use of short, biased next-generation reads often resulted in poor draft-quality genomes. High-quality reference genomes with evidence-based gene annotations deliver the most complete view of genetic diversity, allowing scientists to make novel and meaningful discoveries.

02_AgBioSpot02

Uncover key genes for improved agricultural products

Whether breeding crops or livestock, preventing and treating disease, or protecting against pests, a deeper understanding of genetic components is critical for designing high-performance products. High-throughput, long-read, and cost-effective sequencing produces the most complete and accurate view of genes of interest, enabling a faster response to market demands.

02_AgBioSpot03

Engineer organisms with precision for industrial applications

By optimizing existing biochemical pathways or engineering new ones, scientists turn microbes and plants into safe, contained manufacturing centers. SMRT Sequencing delivers a seamless process for sequencing individual organisms or parsing out microbial communities, resulting in complete and accurate genome assemblies as a basis for engineering.
