Sequence Metagenomes with Confidence
With Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing you are able to generate the long, highly accurate reads you need to see metagenomes in high resolution – from soil and water to the gut – so you can:
- Gain species-level resolution with full-length 16S rDNA
- Discover novel, complete genes and gene clusters to reveal new biology, with no assembly required
- Understand key community functions by sequencing entire operons in a single read at 99.9% accuracy
|Metagenomics||Get inspired and hear how other scientists are using PacBio metagenomic sequencing to inform their research including workflows and the latest publications.|
