SMRT Grant Winner Spotlight

“PacBio HiFi long-read sequencing is enabling a new look at human genomics. In our SMRT grant, we utilized this innovative technology to identify the relevant variation in a family with autism that had remained unsolved with previous technologies. Thank you to PacBio for funding our research and for helping us to not only find answers in this family, but to also support us in working towards Precision Genomics in autism.”

Tychele Turner, Washington University in St. Louis

HiFi for Accuracy SMRT Grant – co-sponsored by the DNA Sequencing Center at Brigham Young UniversityCCGA, and BIOTOOLS.

We are pleased to announce the winners of this SMRT Grant:

  • Claudia Gonzaga-Jauregui of International Laboratory for Human Genome Research, National Autonomous University of Mexico for her project to use HiFi sequencing to understand genetic disorders that remain unanswered even after deep characterization with other molecular tools and sequencing platforms.
  • Sven Winter of Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre for his project to use HiFi sequencing to generate high-quality assemblies of two giraffe species to facilitate analysis of structural differences.
  • Charlene Kahler of University of Western Australia for her project to use HiFi sequencing to conduct metagenomic analysis of oropharyngeal samples collected from individuals carrying meningococcal disease to identify factors involved in infection.

Clinical Research SMRT Grant Program – co-sponsored by Icahn Institute for Data Science and Genomic Technology at Mount Sinai.
We are please to announce the two winners of this SMRT Grant:

  • Danielle Brandes of Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf for her project to discover structural variants related to pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia that have been missed by other technologies.
  • Jenny Taylor of Oxford University for her project to use HiFi sequencing to resolve structural variants and phase variants for a few participants in the UK’s 100,000 Genomes Project as a demonstration of how this approach could potentially help address unsolved disease cases.
