Iso-Seq Study Reveals More Complexity than Expected in Maize Transcriptome

In a new publication from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, scientists produced a dataset for what authors call “the single largest collection of [full-length] cDNAs available in maize” and significantly improved genome annotation. The effort relied on the Iso-Seq method with SMRT Sequencing, which allows scientists to generate ultra-long reads covering full transcripts. The paper, “Unveiling the complexity of the maize transcriptome by single-molecule long-read sequencing,” comes from lead author Bo Wang and senior author Doreen Ware, who is also affiliated with the USDA Agricultural Research Service. It offers the first published results from using the Iso-Seq method on a maize…

Data Release: Zika-Susceptible Aedes aegypti De Novo Genome Assembly

We are excited about the release of a new genome assembly for the mosquito Aedes aegypti, which we hope will aid scientists in studying vector-pathogen dynamics, including those of the rapidly spreading Zika virus. The Aedes aegypti Aag2 cell line genome sequence was generated by a joint effort between Raul Andino’s lab at The University of California, San Francisco and PacBio. This cell line was derived by Peleg in 1975 and adapted in 1991 by Lan and Fallon. It was selected for sequencing based on its susceptibility to infection by many arboviruses, including Dengue, Chikungunya, Zika, Sindbis, and Rift Valley…

East Coast UGM: SMRT Sequencing Data for Carnivorous Plants, Hummingbirds, Mammalian Methylation, Repeat Expansions, and More

Many thanks to the nearly 200 scientists who signed up for our East Coast User Group Meeting, and to the Institute for Genome Sciences for hosting us! The event was a hit with customers and PacBio staff alike, and discussions we heard in the hallways and during breaks told us there was some great knowledge exchange that should give labs inspiration for generating and analyzing their SMRT Sequencing data. The day kicked off with a talk from our own Marty Badgett, senior product manager for the PacBio RS II System and Sequel System. He offered some historical perspective on throughput improvements…

SMRTest Microbe Grant Program:
Nominate Your Favorite Microbe Now!

We’re pleased to launch the latest opportunity to have your favorite microbe sequenced on a PacBio System. The SMRTest Microbe Grant Program, kicking off at this year’s American Society for Microbiology annual meeting in Boston, will give one scientist a free genome sequence for his or her chosen microbe. For those folks unable to make it to the meeting this year, don’t worry — you do not need to attend ASM Microbe to enter the program. To enter, simply submit a short application describing your microbe or microbial community and how it would benefit from the long read lengths, high…

Case Study: Institute for Genome Sciences Expands Long-Read Capabilities with Sequel System

An updated case study about the Genomics Resource Center (GRC) at the University of Maryland’s Institute for Genome Sciences (IGS) reports that SMRT Sequencing has become an integral tool for generating complete microbial genomes, improving plant and animal genome assemblies, and exploring human genome variation. The GRC has a scientific pedigree and a sample-to-interpretation service commitment that place it in a league of its own. The team operates under a simple mantra: ‘If it can be sequenced, we can do it.’ Both the GRC and IGS were founded in 2007 when a high-powered team of investigators formerly at The Institute…
