The Sequence Analysis Meeting: SFAF 2014

The Sequencing, Finishing, and Analysis in the Future (SFAF) meeting kicks off today in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The conference is hosted by Los Alamos National Laboratory and focuses on the analytical details that are so important as the community assesses how to get the most out of all this sequence data. This year, we will have two PacBio speakers, and there will be a number of other talks from users of our long-read sequence data. Steve Turner, our CTO, will speak on Wednesday morning about the use of Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT®) Sequencing for generating highly contiguous genome assemblies…

PAG Highlights and Workshop Recording: Generating High-Quality Bacterial, Plant and Animal Genomes

It was great to visit sunny San Diego for the International Plant and Animal Genome meeting last month. We were impressed with the quality of talks and posters, and we appreciated all the scientists who stopped by our booth or attended our workshop. One highlight for us was listening to Kim Worley from Baylor’s Human Genome Sequencing Center as she described a sooty mangabey primate genome project. Sooty mangabey is a model organism for HIV research, since this particular primate can be infected with the immunodeficiency virus and never develop any symptoms. Because this resistance likely comes from a complex…

Baylor Team Uses PacBio’s SMRT® Sequencing to Upgrade and Finish Draft Genomes

Scientists at the Human Genome Sequencing Center at Baylor College of Medicine recently published a paper demonstrating the utility of PacBio’s long reads for upgrading and finishing draft genomes. “Mind the Gap: Upgrading Genomes with Pacific Biosciences RS Long-Read Sequencing Technology,” published in PLoS One late last year from lead author Adam English and senior author Richard Gibbs, details a method for improving draft genomes, many of which have been assembled from short-read sequence data. In addition, the Baylor team has developed its own algorithm called PBJelly to automate the finishing process, optimized for long-read sequence data. According to the…

PAG 2013 – What Would You Do with a Complete Genome?

We’re pleased to be hosting a workshop at the 21st annual International Plant & Animal Genome conference in San Diego next week — and whether you’re attending or not, we invite you to participate. The workshop will focus on generating high-quality bacterial, plant, and animal genomes using SMRT® Sequencing technology. If you’ll be at PAG, we encourage you to reserve a seat to attend the event. If not, sign up to receive a recording of the workshop. Our event will take place on Tuesday, January 15th from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the San Diego Room. We’ll have presentations from…
