BGI Adopts Single Molecule, Real-Time Sequencing from Pacific Biosciences
Monday, May 4, 2015
“The de novo genome services offered by BGI will be supported by SMRT sequencing technology to take advantage of its long reads and improved accuracy of assembly,” said Dr.
The PacBio RS II delivers the industry’s longest read lengths combined with unbiased coverage and high accuracy. These characteristics enable customers to access the complete spectrum of sequence variant types, from single nucleotide polymorphisms to complex structural variation, and from genomic regions that were previously inaccessible. In addition, SMRT Sequencing is the only technology that provides direct detection of base modifications and direct variant phasing information across full-length genes and chromosome haplotype blocks.
