Plant Biology Worldwide Summit

Sign on and get a ringside seat to some of the world’s best plant science research– facilitated by cutting-edge technologies which expand the traditional limits of communication, collaboration, and networking–and now available to the plant science community all over the world. Following on from the huge success of last year’s Plant Biology 2020 conference, which welcomed attendees from 56 countries, our theme from 2021 is FROM a global audience TO a global audience and that international perspective will be reflected throughout the program.

Join the PacBio Sponsor workshop titled ‘Accessing Genomes and Plant Ecosystems – One SMRT Cell at a Time’, Wednesday July 21st 4:15pm EDT, for a look into how long read sequencing applications are used for the purpose of genome and transcriptome sequencing for plants and their associated microbiome.


PacBio Data Deep Dive: A Closer Look at HiFi Sequencing

Back by popular demand, don’t miss this rebroadcast of our very popular bioinformatics webinar! Join Dan Browne as he explores the content of PacBio HiFi BAM files, provides examples of how HiFi reads can be filtered, and goes through recommendations for downstream analysis.

Virtual Event

Iso-Seq Social Club Vol. 1

Attend the first Iso-Seq social event and learn about how researchers have been applying full-length transcript sequencing to the exciting new fields of single-cell transcriptomics, proteomics, and more!


Unleashing the Power of HiFi Sequencing – How the Sequel IIe System Removes Barriers and Empowers Life Scientists

HiFi reads from PacBio are transforming sequencing! Join us for this webinar to learn how HiFi reads are empowering leading core labs and service providers, and how the new Sequel IIe System, which directly outputs HiFi reads, is making it easier than ever before to get started with HiFi reads or add capacity.


Bioinformatics Workflows for Amplicon Sequencing: from HiFi Data to Results

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. This allows you to detect all variant types across relevant regions and sequence through low complexity regions like repeat expansions, promoters, and flanking regions of transposable elements. This webinar will provide an overview of multiplexed amplicon dataset analysis in SMRT Link and the command line and downstream analysis options.

In this webinar Bas Tolhuis will cover the points below, followed by a Q&A session:

  • Review recommendations for demultiplexing targeted sequencing data.
  • Learn about new features of targeted sequencing analysis in SMRT Link v10.1 (SARS-CoV-2 Analysis Application).
  • Explore several downstream applications (16S Microbiome Analysis, PacBio Amplicon Analysis or pbaa).
Virtual Event

SMRT Science Journal Club

Join us for our quarterly SMRT Science Journal Club, which provides researchers a platform to showcase their publications involving PacBio HiFi data. Attendees can meet with authors after the event.
