SMRT Sequencing of Chicken Heart Transcripts Yields New Genes and Isoforms

The Gallus gallus (common chicken) genome was initially published in 2004, but the latest RefSeq and Ensembl annotations remain incomplete. The chicken is an important model organism, especially for research on embryogenesis and heart development. In a new paper published in PLOS One, researchers representing the Cardiovascular Development Consortium of the Bench to Bassinet Program and Pacific Biosciences describe work to improve the chicken genome annotation using SMRT® DNA Sequencing. In “Long-Read Sequencing of Chicken Transcripts and Identification of New Transcript Isoforms,” the consortium describes how they used SMRT sequencing to generate full-length cDNA reads from embryonic chicken hearts, combined…

Innovation Centre in Quebec Uses SMRT Sequencing for
Cost-Effective, Complete Microbial Genomes

At the McGill University and Génome Québec Innovation Centre, many projects conducted in the sequencing core facility fall under the umbrella of life sciences rather than biomedical research. To the scientists responsible for making the core facility operate as smoothly as possible, that makes a world of difference. “When you’re in the life sciences in addition to human biomedical [research], you’re out there in the world of things that haven’t been sequenced before, or haven’t been sequenced particularly well,” says Ken Dewar, a principal investigator at the Innovation Centre. To navigate this type of uncharted territory, scientists at the center…

Webinar Recap: Automating PacBio 10 kb Template Preparation

During our recent sample prep webinar, PacBio® scientists described new automated options for the 10 kb SMRTbell™ template preparation workflow. In case you didn’t have the chance to attend, here’s a quick recap. Watch the webinar: Automating PacBio 10 kb template preparation The webinar was hosted by Marty Badgett, our consumables product manager, with field application scientist Mike Weiand and technical support scientist Kristi Spittle Kim. The goal of the session was to introduce two new automation solutions that were developed based on interest from customers for more streamlined sample preparation. Both of the systems, available from PerkinElmer and Agilent Technologies,…

GC-Rich Genome of Pandoraea Bacterium Assembled with SMRT Sequencing

Scientists from the Institute of Biological Sciences at the University of Malaya recently published a description of Pandoraea sp. strain RB-44 in Genome Announcements, a journal from the American Society for Microbiology. The genome sequence was completed using Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT®) Sequencing. Pandoraea is a soil bacterium; this particular strain was collected from the site of a former landfill. Some strains of Pandoraea have been suggested as cystic fibrosis clinical pathogens, the authors report, though “their role in pathogenicity is still largely unknown.” Corresponding author Kok-Gan Chan and colleagues may have a new lead in that mystery. Their Pandoraea…

FDA-Supported Pathogen Database to Expand with SMRT Sequencing

We’re delighted to report that Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT®) Sequencing will be a crucial technology in a new research program conducted by the University of Maryland School of Medicine. The Institute for Genome Sciences at the university’s medical school was awarded a contract from the FDA to sequence bacterial pathogens and contribute annotated assemblies to a database accessible through NCBI. Sequencing efforts will be performed by the Genomics Resource Center (GRC) at the institute. The goal of the program is to help develop a reliable database containing the genome sequences of pathogens and other microbes, providing users a comprehensive source…

Deep Thoughts by Ken Dewar from McGill University

Scientist Ken Dewar from McGill University discusses his vast expertise in next-generation sequencing, some little-known facts about the launch of the 454 platform, and a revolutionary business idea for researchers running PacBio sequencers. Perhaps a solution to those dwindling grants? “There’s something fundamentally cool about this,” Dewar says. Happy April Fools’ Day from all of us at PacBio!
