In this SMRT Science Journal Club talk, Mikhail Kolmogorov from the University of California Santa Cruz discusses his computational approach to the generation of lineage-resolved complete MAGs by precision phasing.
In this talk, speakers will describe the importance of high accuracy and long read length for generating closed bacterial assemblies. Speakers will also share examples of how hard-to-assemble domains and plasmids impact important biological traits including, pathogen virulence and anti-microbial resistance. Finally, they will provide an overview of the advantages of highly accurate long-read sequencing for outbreak tracking.
In this talk, speakers provide an understanding of how highly accurate long-read sequencing of extended 16S amplicons enables the identification of metagenome community members at higher taxonomic resolution than short-read methods. You’ll also hear examples of how metagenome functions that impact human health can be driven by specific species or strains within a community and learn how the gut microbiome can impact drug efficacy.

Learn why it is critically important to understand accuracy in DNA sequencing to distinguish important biological information from sequencing errors.
Discover how HiFi reads enable every aspect of viral research, from understanding viral genomes to the host immune response.
Discover the benefits of HiFi reads and learn how highly accurate long-read sequencing provides a single technology solution across a range of applications.
In this video Shawn Levy, Discovery Life Sciences’ Chief Scientific Officer, along with Cheryl Heiner, PacBio Principal Scientist, discuss the advantages of HudsonAlpha Discovery’s specialized sequencing services for PacBio HiFi reads to advance research for clinical, translational, and other studies spanning a range of diseases.
In this talk, speakers provide an understanding HiFi sequencing methods for resolving viral diversity in complex systems, examples of how HiFi sequencing can phase entire viral genes or genomes, revealing quasispecies diversity within patients, and how combining fully-phased minor variant data with other data types provides insights into viral evolution, immune escape, and drug resistance.
In this talk, speakers provide an overview of PacBio-recommended tools for metagenome sequencing analysis, where to download example test data, the typical performance for HiFi metagenome sequencing of fecal samples, the impact of read accuracy on metagenome assembly of long-read data, and finally, how deep sequencing that combines HiFi reads and Hi-C data can enormously increase recovery of high-quality MAGs and connect plasmids and viruses to host strains.
We sequenced complete HIV-1 genomes from single molecules using Single Molecule, Real- Time (SMRT) Sequencing and derive de novo full-length genome sequences. SMRT sequencing yields long-read sequencing results from individual DNA molecules with a rapid time-to-result. These attributes make it a useful tool for continuous monitoring of viral populations. The single-molecule nature of the sequencing method allows us to estimate variant subspecies and relative abundances by counting methods. We detail mathematical techniques used in viral variant subspecies identification including clustering distance metrics and mutual information. Sequencing was performed in order to better understand the relationships between the specific sequences of…
Background: To better understand the relationships among HIV-1 viruses in linked transmission pairs, we sequenced several samples representing HIV transmission pairs from the Zambia Emory HIV Research Project (Lusaka, Zambia) using Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing. Methods: Single molecules were sequenced as full-length (9.6 kb) amplicons directly from PCR products without shearing. This resulted in multiple, fully-phased, complete HIV-1 genomes for each patient. We examined Single Genome Amplification (SGA) prepped samples, as well as samples containing complex mixtures of genomes. We detail mathematical techniques used in viral variant subspecies identification, including clustering distance metrics and mutual information, which were used…
PacBio 2013 User Group Meeting Presentation Slides: Lance Hepler from UC San Diego’s Center for AIDS Research used the PacBio RS to study intra-host diversity in HIV-1. He compared PacBio’s performance to that of 454® sequencer, the platform he and his team previously used. Hepler noted that in general, there was strong agreement between the platforms; where results differed, he said that PacBio data had significantly better reproducibility and accuracy. “PacBio does not suffer from local coverage loss post-processing, whereas 454 has homopolymer problems,” he noted. Hepler said they are moving away from using 454 in favor of the PacBio…
