More comprehensive variant detection at scale in rare disease research

September 26, 2023

Tuesday, September 26, 2023 | 15.00 BST | 16.00 CEST

Higher throughput and lower costs of long-read sequencing are now available on the Revio system with its trusted highly accurate long-read chemistry (HiFi chemistry). In this webinar, Adam Ameur, PhD, associate professor at SciLifeLab in Uppsala, Sweden, will discuss early results of whole-genome HiFi sequencing in rare disease research as part of the Genomic Medicine Sweden project.

A pangenome reference of Chinese populations

September 27, 2023

Wednesday, 27 September, 2023
10:30AM – 11:30AM (India) | 1:00PM – 2:00PM (Singapore) | 2:00PM – 3:00PM (Korea, Japan) | 3:00PM – 4:00PM (Melbourne)

Human genomics is witnessing an ongoing paradigm shift from a single reference sequence to a pangenome form, yet populations of Asian ancestry remain underrepresented. In Dr. Shuhua Xu’s latest Nature article ‘A Pangenome Reference of 36 Chinese Populations’, the Chinese Pangenome Consortium (CPC) attempted to uncover missing sequences and previously unidentified hidden variations within Chinese ethnic groups. CPC also aimed to establish a high-quality genome reference for comprehensive profiling gene diversity in Chinese as well as other Asian populations.

Join Dr. Shuhua Xu, a professor of human population genetics and the Principal Investigator of the Population Omics Group at Fudan University, as he introduces his team’s new findings in their latest Nature article.



Understanding SMRT Link run QC and on-instrument analysis on the PacBio Revio system

September 28, 2023

Thursday, September 28, 2023
8.00 AM PDT | 11.00 AM EDT | 4.00 PM BST | 5.00 PM CEST

In this webinar, PacBio scientists Nancy Francoeur, PhD and Caroline Storer, PhD take a closer look at QC metrics and on-instrument analysis pipelines in SMRT Link. Primary run QC metrics let you evaluate sequencing performance, monitor performance trends, and understand how sample loading affects SMRT sequencing quality and yield.

World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics

October 10, 2023 - October 14, 2023

October 10, 2023 – October 14, 2023

These are exciting times in psychiatric genetics. With unprecedented data availability, we are moving from gene-identification to understanding mechanisms of psychiatric disorders, allowing for a rethinking of psychiatric categorization and for new intervention approaches to be envisaged. The WCPG is the premier international scientific meeting for research in psychiatric genetics and related areas. Leading experts of genetics, neuroscience, and psychiatry from all over the world will be participating.

A new age in liquid biopsy research with highly accurate short-read sequencing

October 18, 2023 - October 19, 2023

Americas/Europe broadcast: Wed., Oct. 18 | 10:00 AM PDT, 6:00 PM BST
Asia-Pacific broadcast: Thurs., Oct. 19 | 11:00 AM SGT

New, proprietary technology from PacBio delivers a 10 to 100-fold increase in accuracy over traditional short-read sequencing platforms. With enhanced sensitivity and reduced sequencing depth, PacBio short-read sequencing technology empowers cancer researchers to see what they haven’t been able to before.

In this webinar, learn about game-changing liquid biopsy research capabilities made possible by the Onso sequencing system and powered by proprietary sequencing by binding (SBB) chemistry.

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory – Single Cell Analyses

November 08, 2023 - November 11, 2023

November 08, 2023 – November 11, 2023

We are pleased to announce the eighth US-based Single Cell Analyses Meeting, which will be held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, New York. The meeting will begin with dinner and an evening session on Wednesday, November 8, and conclude with lunch on Saturday, November 11, 2023.

The CSHL Single Cell Analyses meeting is the oldest single-cell biology meeting as this year will mark its 14th anniversary. Throughout the years, this meeting alternates its host location between US and CSHL China. This meeting assembles leaders in the field, together with junior faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students, to discuss new, cutting-edge developments and techniques in single-cell analysis in bacterial, yeast, plant, and animal systems.
