Characterize complex populations with single-molecule resolution
Distinguishing closely related DNA molecules in the same sample requires single-molecule resolution with high accuracy and long read lengths. For these applications, we have developed a sequencing mode that generates intra-molecular consensus called Circular Consensus Sequencing (CCS).
Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing is the only technology that generates this level of single-molecule consensus accuracy at multi-kilobase read lengths, and it has been used for a variety of complex population applications. With this advanced sequencing method, you have the ability to:
- Deconvolute complex mixtures of unique haplotypes
- Accurately identify somatic variants
- Resolve complex communities
The circular nature of the SMRTbell DNA template allows polymerase to sequence the same DNA molecule multiple times with multiple passes. This produces high intra-molecular consensus accuracy.
