Survey transcript diversity with easy-to-use Iso-Seq analysis
Using the long reads generated by Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) sequencing, our Iso-Seq method provides reads that span entire transcript isoforms, eliminating the need for computational reconstruction, and enabling functional characterization of full-length transcript isoforms. Explore the RNA sequencing application and workflows.
Our Iso-Seq analysis empowers you to discover novel transcripts and genes, identify fusion genes, annotate isoforms and alternative splicing events.
Iso-Seq analysis uses highly accurate long reads (HiFi reads) generated with the CCS algorithm to cluster and generate full-length, high-quality transcript isoforms. Isoforms can be then mapped to a reference. Iso-Seq analysis is an easy-to-use application accessible via the SMRT Link graphical user interface.
How it works
Full-length, HiFi reads (Q20, single-molecule resolution) are identified and clustered at the isoform level, then polished to create high-quality consensus.
