Start Your Journey to Discovery
Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing allows you to access the full spectrum of human genetic variation to uncover the hidden heritability of disease and better understand population diversity.
Increase your genetic discovery power with a comprehensive view of structural variation so you can find novel disease genes, identify causative mutations, and reveal the underpinnings of complex disease
Our 2018 Structural Variation SMRT Grant Program is Open. Apply Now!
Want to explore the human genome with a complete view of genetic variation?
Tell us how low-coverage, whole genome sequencing will advance your disease research or population genetics study for a chance to win free SMRT Sequencing including:
- Construction up to 3 SMRTbell libraries
- SMRT Sequencing (up to 12 SMRT Cells)
- Bioinformatics analysis
Submit your 250-word proposal by Friday, November 30, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. PST
One winner will be selected from all qualified applications by a panel of scientists from PacBio and the University of Minnesota Genomics Center. Read the official rules.
