Explore the Microbial World

Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing provides the highly accurate long reads, or HiFi reads, necessary to capture any microbe in high resolution. Apply for this SMRT Grant for your chance to win free sequencing!

What Will You Explore?

Microbial Genomes – achieve reference-quality assemblies, closing even the most repeat-dense and GC-rich genomes and resolving plasmids

Metagenomes – characterize microbial communities with species-level resolution with full-length 16S rDNA and shotgun sequencing for metagenomic profiling and assemblies

Microbial Epigenetics – characterize DNA modifications and methyltransferase recognition motifs

Viral Populations – resolve all the variants within a population to understand evolution, quasispecies dynamics, drug-resistance, and immune escape

SARs-CoV-2 – gain access to the viral RNA genome with long-read amplicon sequencing

The 2020 Microbial Genomics SMRT Grant Program is Open - Apply Now

Tell us in 250 words or less how SMRT Sequencing will drive new discoveries in your microbial research for a chance to win construction of up to 6 SMRTbell libraries, sequencing with up to 6 SMRT Cells 8M on the Sequel II System, and bioinformatics support.

Things to know about this SMRT Grant Program:

  • We encourage scientists of all career stages to apply
  • You can read the official rules, or reach out if you have questions about this SMRT Grant
  • One winner will be selected from all qualified applications by a panel of scientists from PacBio and Maryland Genomics
  • The submission window closes: Friday, November 6, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. PST

Don’t want to wait for the SMRT Grant to start your project? Connect with a PacBio scientist to discuss your research ideas.
