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.
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.
The Environmental and Agronomical Genomics 2021 symposium is jointly organised by France Génomique (FG) and the GDR Génomique Environnementale (GE). The Environmental and Agronomical Genomics 2021 symposium will be the opportunity to have an update on most recent environmental genomics research, as well as an overview of high scientific impact projects carried out in collaboration with FG platforms.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Join local researchers and scientists from PacBio as they update you on the latest SMRT Sequencing applications and capabilities.
Learn how scientists are using highly accurate long-read sequencing to make new discoveries about bacteria, viruses, and the complex systems they inhabit and influence in this, the fourth of a four-part microbial genomics webinar series.
The Bioinformatics Core is excited to announce a three day workshop on Iso-Seq in partnership with PacBio! With instruction from experienced Core personnel and Iso-Seq analysis experts, this short course will provide a mixture of lectures and hands-on analysis to give participants an overview of the possibilities represented by full length transcript isoform sequencing with Iso-Seq.Participants will explore experimental design, cost estimation, data generation, and analysis, following Iso-Seq experiments from end to end and learning about several applications of this high quality full length RNA sequence data. Exercises will be performed with provided datasets, using command-line interaction on the Genome Center Compute Cluster.
There are no prerequisites other than basic familiarity with genomic concepts. Some familiarity with the command-line and R is helpful. However, we will dedicate time on the first day to bringing everyone up-to-speed to be able to run the commands needed during this workshop. This workshop will be held remotely over Zoom and Slack, and run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day.
PacBio scientists will present new research at the ESHG Conference demonstrating how HiFi sequencing enables new discoveries.
Learn how scientists are adopting highly accurate long reads, known as HiFi reads, to gain views of human genetic diversity. With high accuracy (>99.9%) and long read lengths up to 25 kb, HiFi sequencing allows scientists to find causative pathogenic variants and identify novel disease-associated genes with best-in-class variant calling for all variant types as well as complete and phased assemblies of the human genome.

Join us August 2 – 6 for Plant Health 2021 Online as we explore major shifts in bacterial, viral, nematode, and fungal pathosystems to help you anticipate and deflect future shifts in disease risk. Attend our pre-meeting week, July 26 – 30, for a variety of activities, including 45 committee meetings, the APS Awards Ceremony, APS Society Updates, and multiple networking opportunities. All are welcome to attend the committee sessions to listen, learn, and contribute your ideas on ways to advance APS and plant pathology.
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.
