Produce exceptional results with long reads
As the field of genomics evolves, there is a growing awareness in the scientific community of the importance of long-read data. Long sequence reads improve mappability for resequencing and simplify de novo assembly. PacBio Systems allow you to directly sequence DNA and achieve long sequencing reads with uniform coverage. Our Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing technology consistently produces some of the longest average read lengths available in the industry (average > 10,000 bp, some reads > 60,000 bp).
These long reads give you the ability to:
- Assemble high-quality de novo genomes
- Catalog full-length isoforms
- Unambiguously align sequences
- Observe fully phased alleles
- Span repetitive elements and complex regions
- Resolve structural variants
Read length data shown above from a 30 kb size-selected human library on the Sequel System (10-hour movie, 2.0 chemistry) with a total output of 7.6 Gb. Each Sequel System SMRT Cell 1M generates ~365,000 reads.
