While RNA-sequencing has dramatically accelerated our understanding of biology, quantitation and discovery of full-length RNA isoforms resulting from alternative splicing remain poorly resolved. Alternative splicing is a core regulatory process that modulates the structure, expression, and localization of expressed proteins through differential exon and/or UTR splicing during transcript maturation. Beyond being an integral component of cellular development and homeostatic maintenance, RNA splicing is implicated in a wide range of pathologies with hallmark isoforms being linked to cardiovascular, neurological, and immunological diseases. Current limitations in isoform quantitation and discovery arise from the inability of existing sequencing platforms to scalably sequence full-length…
In this talk, Dr. Elizabeth Tseng demonstrates a throughput increase for the scIso-Seq method by concatenating single-cell molecules, increasing yield a minimum of 6-fold per SMRT Cell 8M. She explains the bioinformatics workflow for analyzing concatenated scIso-Seq data, which begins with de-concatenation, followed by tagging of UMI and barcode information that can be processed by the isoseq3 pipeline for deduplication. Reads are then aligned against the reference genome, followed by SQANTI3 for transcript classification against a reference annotation (ex: GENCODE) which produces an isoform-level sparse matrix to be analyzed with single-cell tools such as Seurat. She also shows how to…

With SMRT Link you can unlock the power of PacBio Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing using our portfolio of software tools designed to set up and monitor sequencing runs, review performance metrics, analyze, visualize, and annotate your sequencing data.
The Agilent Femto Pulse system automated pulsed-field CE instrument is a fast, high-resolution benchtop capillary electrophoresis (CE) platform that utilizes pulsed-field electrophoresis to separate high molecular weight DNA fragments. This platform allows important DNA quality checkpoints to be completed in less than 1.5 hours with minimal sample input for de novo large genome sequencing projects and other PacBio applications leveraging multi-kilobase read lengths. The instrument can be used in place of gel-based pulsed-field electrophoresis (PFGE) systems to fully support generation of large-insert SMRTbell libraries with accurate sizing to 165 kb. Alternative DNA sizing instruments cannot accurately resolve large DNA fragments…
The study of genomics has revolutionized our understanding of science, but the field of transcriptomics grew with the need to explore the functional impacts of genetic variation. While different tissues in an organism may share the same genomic DNA, they can differ greatly in what regions are transcribed into RNA and in their patterns of RNA processing. By reviewing the history of transcriptomics, we can see the advantages of RNA sequencing using a full-length transcript approach become clearer.
At Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, scientists used SMRT Sequencing to decode one of the most challenging cancer genomes ever encountered. Along the way, they built a portfolio of open-access analysis tools that will help researchers everywhere make structural variation discoveries with long-read sequencing data.
To bring personalized medicine to all patients, cancer researchers need more reliable and comprehensive views of somatic variants of all sizes that drive cancer biology.
With Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing and the Sequel Systems, you can easily and affordably sequence complete transcript isoforms in genes of interest or across the entire transcriptome. The Iso-Seq method allows users to generate full-length cDNA sequences up to 10 kb in length — with no assembly required — to confidently characterize full-length transcript isoforms.
