Sequence All Life with Confidence
Explore how HiFi reads can advance scientific discovery and apply to win free sequencing on the Sequel II System.
What are HiFi Reads?
PacBio highly accurate long reads, known as HiFi reads, are changing how scientists think about sequencing. HiFi reads provide both Sanger-quality accuracy (>99%) and the long reads needed to assemble even the most complex genomes and whole transcriptomes.
Did you know? PacBio is the only sequencing technology to offer HiFi reads. Learn more about HiFi reads
New to SMRT Sequencing? Discover the advantages
HiFi reads can be used across many of the SMRT Sequencing applications
|Whole Genome Sequencing for generation of reference-quality de novo genome assemblies|
|Variant Detection for comprehensive detection of all variants – from SNVs to structural variants|
|RNA Sequencing to gain a complete view of transcript isoform diversity – no assembly required|
|Targeted Sequencing for accurate discovery and detection of all variant types even in the hardest to reach regions of the genome|
|Complex Populations to resolve the complexity of bacterial, viral, and cancer cell populations|
|Epigenetics through direct detection of DNA modification during sequencing|
