Resolve the genetic complexity of neurological disease
With Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing you can explore disease mechanisms with confidence. Identify the genetic drivers of neurological, neuromuscular, and neurodegenerative disorders with a complete view of all variants in the genome or full-length isoforms in the transcriptome.
Explore these SMRT Sequencing Applications to Get Inspired
|Variant Detection to phase alleles and screen for variants including SNPs, complex structural variants like repeat expansions, and long homopolymers|
|RNA Sequencing of full-length isoforms of disease-relevant genes to characterize the complete landscape of gene-specific transcripts|
|Targeting Sequencing of candidate genes with pre-designed capture panels or long-range PCR to enrich and sequence multi-kilobase fragments|
The 2019 Neuroscience SMRT Grant Program is Open. Apply Now!
