Expanding NGS truth sets with long-reads: more comprehensive variant detection in a multi-generational pedigree

Accurate long-read sequencing characterizes the full spectrum of genetic variation across the genome, but variant calling software is still catching up to the sequencing technologies. We have generated deep Pacific Biosciences (PacBio) high-fidelity (HiFi), ultra-long Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT), Strand-seq, and Illumina whole-genome sequencing data to construct near-T2T, phased genome assemblies from primary material obtained from a 4-generation, 28-member CEPH pedigree (1463). We are constructing a more comprehensive and validated catalog of greater than 8 million single-nucleotide variants, indels, short tandem repeats, and structural variants, including a detailed assessment of inversion polymorphisms that associate with disease risk. The use of multiple orthogonal technologies, near-T2T phased-genome assemblies, and a multi-generation family allow us to assess inheritance patterns and to create a “truth set” for all classes of human genetic variation upon which to test and benchmark new technologies.

Exploring the potential clinical utility of HiFi sequencing for homologous loci (pseudogenes)

PacBio HiFi long-read sequencing has the potential to become a single front-line assay for interrogating rare disease cohorts because of its ability to accurately call and phase all classes of variants. An international group of clinical researchers and PacBio have been collaborating to study the efficacy of HiFi sequencing in interrogating the many possible genetic mechanisms that underlie rare diseases. This presentation provides an overview of the group’s goals and activities and recent results, particularly around correctly resolving clinically relevant genes that lie in areas of high sequence homology or otherwise complex regions of the human genome.

Achieving more comprehensive variant detection at scale in rare disease research

Higher throughput and lower costs for highly accurate long-read (HiFi) sequencing are now available on the Revio system. HiFi sequencing enables you to capture all variant types with high precision and recall, phase haplotypes, and identify methylation patterns across the genome. Dr. Adam Ameur of SciLifeLab in Uppsala, Sweden, has implemented the Revio system to create new discovery opportunities for a range of HiFi sequencing applications, including whole-genome sequencing in human genomic research.

Customer testimonial – TGen explores the next-level accuracy of Onso short-read sequencing.

Experience a new era of short-read sequencing accuracy with the Onso system. In this illuminating video, Candice Wike, Ph.D., from the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), part of City of Hope, joins Product Marketer Young Kim in Menlo Park. During their conversation they take us on a journey through the remarkable world of TGen’s research and highlights the game-changing potential of this advanced technology.

TGen, located in Phoenix, AZ, is a nonprofit biomedical research institute focused on precision medicine in areas such as oncology, pathogens and infectious diseases, rare childhood disorders, and neurological disorders.

In discussing her experience with PacBio’s Onso system, Dr. Wike highlights the system's exceptional accuracy, spotlighting its capacity to detect ultra-low variants with unprecedented precision. The significance of this accuracy is emphasized as she discusses the beauty of mapped reads and the statistical power they offer, enabling the detection of variants at an astonishingly low frequency of 0.001%.

She also explains how the high accuracy from the technology’s sequencing by binding (SBB) chemistry, reduces the need for complex library prep methods and intricate downstream bioinformatics pipelines in the short-read sequencing space. With the PacBio Onso system, researchers like Dr. Wike can trust that the data they see is a direct representation of their findings, removing the need for additional error correction processes. Beyond the technical intricacies, Dr. Wike discusses PacBio’s collaboration with TGen and how Onso, with its ability to detect variants at such high accuracy, will enable TGen to continue asking the questions that push the boundaries of precision medicine.

Streamlined chromosome-scale phasing with HiFi sequencing

Reconstructing complete phased genomes is key to understanding the genetic basis of many complex traits. However, the bioinformatic complexity of long-range phasing creates a pressing need for streamlined, efficient computational approaches that can reconstruct high-quality, chromosome-scale phased sequences at scale. Highly accurate long reads from PacBio (HiFi reads) are well suited for haplotype-resolved assemblies of human, non-human, and cancer genomes. With the right bioinformatics tools, HiFi data enables high-quality phased genome assembly to examine structural variant landscapes, characterize cancer-related mutations, and facilitate new, unbiased studies of haplotype variation.
