ASHG 2015: Workshop, Presentations, and First Chance to See the Sequel System

Thursday, October 1, 2015

We’re looking forward to the year’s biggest scientific meeting focused on human genetics next week — the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) 2015 annual meeting, taking place in Baltimore, Maryland. SMRT® Sequencing will be featured in 36 scientific presentations, as well as our lunchtime workshop. Even if you’re not attending you can attend our workshop virtually to learn more about our newest SMRT Sequencer – the Sequel™ System — and about the latest uses of SMRT Sequencing for human biomedical applications.

Our workshop, “Addressing Hidden Heritability through Long-Read Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing” will be held on Wednesday, October 7, from 1:00-2:30 p.m. Eastern Time at the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel, Baltimore. The event will be hosted by Michael Hunkapiller and Jonas Korlach from Pacific Biosciences, and include talks by Richard Gibbs from Baylor College of Medicine and Richard Wilson from Washington University in St. Louis. Sign up to attend in person or virtually.

Podium Presentations

The depth and breadth of scientific talks presented at ASHG this year demonstrate how long-read SMRT Sequencing is opening up new frontiers by helping the genome sequencing community create gold-standard genome references, characterize complex regions, resolve structural variation, and unlock isoform diversity. Highlights include the following podium presentations:

 

Wednesday, October 7

2:30 p.m.

Long read single-molecule real-time (SMRT) full gene sequencing of cytochrome P450 2D6 (CYP2D6) #27

  1. Yang, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

3:15 p.m.

Comprehensive genome and transcriptome structural analysis of a breast cancer cell line using PacBio long read sequencing #14

  1. Nattestad, Cold Spring Harbor

3:30 p.m.

Evolution and structural diversity of the complement factor H related gene cluster #47

  1. Cantsilieris, University of Washington School of Medicine

 

Friday, October 9

2:15 p.m.

Saturday, October 10

10:45 a.m.

Full-length mRNA sequencing uncovers a widespread coupling between transcription and mRNA processing #71

S.Y. Anvar, Leiden University Medical Center

 

Additional Activities at ASHG

Research conducted using SMRT Sequencing will also be featured in at least 28 poster presentations. Check out the full list of PacBio-related ASHG meeting research and activities. Attendees can also visit the PacBio booth (#907) to learn more about the new Sequel System.

We hope to see you in Baltimore!
