Scientists at the sequencing core facility in the McGill University and Génome Québec Innovation Centre have raised the bar on assembly performance and read length at an affordable price using their PacBio RS II Sequencing System.
Korean service provider DNA Link has established strong expertise with the PacBio sequencing platform in response to high global demand for the technology.
GATC Biotech, the first PacBio Certified Service Provider in Europe, became a leader in the sequencing field by continuously adopting new technologies, developing innovative products, and delivering quality results to its 10,000-strong customer base. Today, GATC Biotech is constantly looking for new ways to maximize the value of highly accurate, long-read sequencing.
At the University of Arizona, a leading genomics research facility benefits from decades of BAC- based sequencing expertise, original studies of crop genomes, and a unique emphasis on high molecular weight DNA.
At the University of Maryland’s Genomics Resource Center, SMRT Sequencing has become an integral tool for generating complete microbial genomes, improving plant and animal genome assemblies, and exploring human genome variation.
At the National Center for Genome Resources in Santa Fe, New Mexico, scientists run a world- renowned sequencing service facility that’s heavy on long reads and bioinformatics expertise. It also supports a wide range of microbial, plant, and animal projects.
The Sequel II System is powered by Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing, a technology proven to produce highly accurate long reads, known as HiFi reads, for sequencing data you and your customers can trust.
Jeremy Schmutz discusses the increased throughput and reduced project costs using HiFi reads from the PacBio Sequel II System in his work sequencing, assembling, and analyzing a variety of genomes at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology.
In this technical application note we demonstrate how long reads can be used to study hard-to-sequence regions. We will give an overview of the methods and considerations when targeting genomic regions or transcript sequencing and present various results and examples of applications.
