Building Better Genomes.
Enabling Breakthrough Discovery.

PacBio de novo genome assemblies deliver megabase-size contig N50s, consensus accuracies >99.99%, and phased haplotypes so you can do more biology – capturing undetected SNVs, fully intact genes, and regulatory regions embedded in complex structures.

Workflows: From DNA to Reference-Quality Genome Assembly

Choose the sequencing mode that’s right for your project

PacBio is the only sequencing technology to offer highly accurate long reads (HiFi reads).

 

Learn more about these sequencing modes

 

 

 

 

 


HiFi reads have a minimum accuracy of Q20 (99%), produce small file sizes, and enable fast analysis time.

See the HiFi Reads Workflow


Long reads generate data with half the reads >50 kb and maximum read lengths up to 175 kb while maintaining short sequencing run times.

See the Long Reads Workflow
