Gene therapy is at an inflection point and experiencing tremendous growth. High accuracy and complete visibility are critical to the success of novel vector discovery, vector design, and manufacturing quality control for gene therapy products. This webinar illustrates why PacBio HiFi sequencing is the ideal solution due to its ability to sequence full length AAV genomes at high accuracy, which allows for detection of fragmentation, mutations, and large structural events. Short reads, qPCR, and less accurate long-read technology can miss important changes that may be present in the AAV sequence, potentially affecting the safety and efficacy of gene therapy products.
