PacBio HiFi sequencing has been used to generate the latest and most complete version of the human genome, characterize population-level structural variations, diplotype pharmacogenetic loci, and elucidate complex alternative splicing at the single-cell level. The two main characteristics of HiFi data – long read length and high accuracy – are critical for applications that either require near-perfect consensus sequencing or long-range phasing information. However, existing computational tools that were designed for short-reads often failed to either utilize the long-range information or employed heuristics that did not apply to HiFi data. Thus, a new generation of alignment, assembly, splicing, and annotation tools had to be…

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…
PacBio Vice President of Segment Marketing, Dr. Jennifer Stone, demonstrates how HiFi sequencing is changing the game in human genetics by sharing some of the exciting milestones and seminal publications our technology has produced this year.
Using concatenation we increase single-cell Iso-Seq (scIso-Seq) throughput to ~8 million de-concatenated full-length molecules per SMRT Cell 8M. We show that the scIso-Seq method captures full-length isoform information at the single-cell level.
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…
Understanding genome sequences and how they evolved is critical for harnessing that evolutionary process for agricultural improvement. Whether asking questions about the gain/loss of genes, the role of structural variation on phenotypic diversity, or identifying favorable alleles in exotic and wild species, DNA and RNA sequencing have proven to be extremely valuable tools for breeding programs all over the world. This panel-style webinar brings together three plant biologists to talk about their journeys into sequencing plant genomes and how these efforts have helped push plant breeding forward.
