Connect with the SMRT Sequencing Community
Join us at the events listed below to discover how Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing can help advance your research.
Join us for this webinar to understand the evolution of sequencing technologies and where they stand today, the experiences of three plant biologists incorporating sequencing into their work, and how you can get a sequencing pilot project started for your research.
The Sequel IIe System generates highly accurate long reads (HiFi reads) from genes or regions of interest ranging in size from several hundred base pairs to 20 kb with >99.9% single-molecule read accuracy. HiFi sequencing is the tool of choice to affordably generate contiguous, complete, and correct de novo genome assemblies of even the most complex plant genomes. This webinar will provide an overview of the Maize B73 genome assembly from HiFi sequencing through scaffolding.
In this webinar Greg Concepcion will:
- Review the benefits of HiFi sequencing for genome assembly and examples of assembly metrics for plants and animals
- Demonstrate assembly and scaffolding of a large diploid plant genome Maize B73 (2.2Gb) with HiFi and Hi-C data for scaffolding, including:
- Algorithm recommendations
- Pre- & post-processing recommendations
- Provide recommendations for annotation and further downstream analysis
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
GENEWIZ and PacBio team up to highlight research that HiFi reads enable for human biomedical research. Stay to talk to our speakers about their various topics of research. Submit your project proposal before the deadline for a chance to win free sequencing!
Join PacBio and your industry peers at the world’s largest online gathering of human genetics and genomics professionals. The meeting provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of cutting-edge science in all areas of human genetics. ASHG members and leading scientists from around the world are selected to present their research findings at invited, plenary, platform, and poster sessions. PacBio is a Gold Sponsor at this year’s event.
The next Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory conference on Genome Informatics will be held virtually (this meeting has alternated with the Hinxton meeting started under the joint auspices of CSHL and the Wellcome Trust). The meeting will begin late morning Eastern Time, Wednesday, November 3, ending late afternoon Eastern Time on Friday, November 5.
Highly accurate long-read sequencing, or HiFi sequencing, is being used around the world to inspire discoveries in human biomedical research, plant and animal sciences, and microbiology and infectious disease. This year, the Global Virtual User Meeting will showcase research using PacBio powered technology from whole genome sequencing for de novo assembly to comprehensive variant detection to RNA sequencing and more!
Register now for a 24-hour virtual journey to join fellow researchers and hear from experts to learn how HiFi sequencing is expanding knowledge of genomes and inspiring advancements in science.
Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) 2021 Annual Meeting & Expo will take place November 16-20 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Please plan to join us on November 16 for Short Course Day, and on November 17 for Corporate Workshop Day, ahead of the scientific program.
The theme of our meeting this year will be, “Leading Molecular Medicine Forward”.
AMP is the leading organization in the field of molecular diagnostics, and our annual meeting is widely considered the “premier gathering” of molecular professionals. As always, we will explore how cutting-edge technology and developments in molecular testing and diagnostics continue to have a major impact on patient care. The AMP 2021 Program Committee has planned an impressive program to spark dialogue and engagement amongst attendees and exhibitors from around the world, and we look forward to many happy reunions of colleagues and friends after this difficult pandemic period.
