Sequencing for everyone

Our SMRT Grant Programs enable the scientific community to submit their genome or transcriptome projects for a chance to win PacBio sequencing. With support from our partners, we offer these programs throughout the year.

Stay tuned for the winner of the 2017 ‘Open Your Eyes to Isoform Diversity’ SMRT Grant Program

With PacBio long-read sequencing, you’ll see the complete picture of isoform diversity in your cancer sample. Isoform sequencing on the Sequel System can reveal gene fusions, splice variants, and novel isoforms to expose hidden biology and discover novel biomarkers for early detection, cancer stratification, and drug resistance.
Tell us how the Iso-Seq method will drive new discoveries in your cancer research for a chance to win free SMRT Sequencing and bioinformatics analysis.

The SMRT Grant program is now closed to new submissions.

The winner will be announced soon here and at our blog.

Winner of the 2017 Plant and Animal SMRT Grant Program

We are pleased to announce that Dancing with Dingoes by Bill Ballard and Claire Wade from the University of New South Wales and University of Sydney, respectively, is the winner of our 4th annual Plant & Animal SMRT Grant Program. This project will receive genome sequencing and assembly thanks to our partners, the Arizona Genomics Institute and Computomics. The PIs plan to explore the dingo genome as an intermediate step along the evolutionary pathway from wild wolves to domestic dogs, testing Darwin’s 1868 hypothesis.
