American Society for Microbiology (ASM) NGS 2020

Join us at the virtual 2020 ASM Conference on Next-Generation Sequencing, taking place Dec. 7-11, 2020, and get comprehensive guidance with up-to-date examples in the use of NGS technology for applied results in the traceability and clustering of microbial pathogens associated with food safety, clinical infection, environmental contamination and other potential sources of disease outbreaks. You’ll walk away with access to the available resources and direction you need relating to bioinformatics and epidemiology.


University of Pittsburgh Virtual Seminar

As the foundation for advanced scientific discoveries, sequencing data must be accurate and complete. With PacBio highly accurate long reads, known as HiFi reads, scientists no longer need to compromise between long read lengths and high data accuracy. In this webinar, we will illustrate through real-life case studies using HiFi applications to gain comprehensive views of your studied genomes and transcriptomes regardless of their size and complexity.

Virtual Event

PacBio Neuroscience Day 2020

Our Neuroscience Day virtual event aims to empower scientists on their journey of discovery. Join us to learn how highly accurate long-read sequencing can be used at every stage of your research, from disease variant identification to elucidation of the disease mechanisms and screening disease cohorts. Engage with leading scientists across three session tracks to learn from their experiences and explore the latest tools to advance your science.
