Thank You to Our Co-Sponsor
The HudsonAlpha Genome Sequencing Center has more than two decades of experience developing reference genome sequences and genomic data analyses. From completing three human chromosomes during the Human Genome Project to generating reference assemblies for more than 50 species of plants, we understand the complexities involved in planning and executing sequencing projects to the highest possible standard. As a PacBio Certified Service Provider now running three Sequel II Systems, we are continuing to help customers plan and execute complex genomic projects using SMRT Sequencing and advanced analysis techniques.
