Targeted sequencing with HiFi reads allows you to sequence only the genomic regions you care about — easily and cost-effectively at scale. Hybrid capture and amplicon workflows are available to suit your needs, giving you all the benefits you expect from HiFi reads including accurate haplotype resolution and comprehensive detection of all variant types. The length and accuracy of HiFi reads allow you to access genomic dark regions such as areas of high homology, GC-rich and repetitive regions, and to resolve complex gene families like HLA and pharmacogenes like CYP2D6.

HiFi Target Enrichment
Combine Twist Bioscience target enrichment with PacBio long and accurate HiFi reads to efficiently sequence your priority genomic regions at scale. Sequence enriched regions with a protocol optimized for HiFi reads to get comprehensive detection of single nucleotide variants, structural variants, and indels with haplotype resolution. HiFi target enrichment can deliver accurate alleles for complex gene families such as immune genes (e.g., HLA) and pharmacogenes (e.g., CYP2D6).
HiFi target enrichment enables you to sequence at scale with ready-made Twist Alliance Panels or custom designs. Learn more about Twist and plan your project with this app brief.
HiFi amplicon sequencing
Enjoy a simplified workflow with one primer pair and one amplicon pool, easy assay optimization, long-range phasing, and simplified data analysis. Target medically relevant, individual genes or small gene panels using a PCR-based approach. If you can amplify it, HiFi sequencing can span your amplicon in a single read, giving unambiguous haplotype resolution through direct phasing. HiFi amplicon sequencing allows you to replace multiple assays with one fast, easy, scalable, and economical workflow.

HiFi targeted sequencing and comprehensive analysis of SMN1/2 with Paraphase
In this Application Note, we demonstrate targeted HiFi sequencing assays combined with a new informatics method for the combined analysis of SMN1 and SMN2. The software tool, Paraphase, is an informatics method that identifies full-length SMN1 and SMN2 haplotypes, determines gene copy numbers, and calls phased variants using PacBio® HiFi data.

Shining a light on dark genes
Countries around the world have recognized the value of precision health and population genomics research initiatives. They have launched efforts to sequence thousands to millions of genomes in order to learn more about how complex or rare inherited diseases impact their populations and how to mitigate their impacts. The goal? Building diverse health databases, learn how biology and lifestyle affect health, and bring us closer to a future where precision medicine is the standard.
But a population genomics program database can only be as good as the data it collects. Which raises the question – are the programs in place today able to collect everything they need to be the most effective for their target population?
