Resolve Complex Human Genetic Variation with Confidence
Apply to win free sequencing to drive new discoveries in your clinical research with PacBio highly accurate long reads–HiFi reads.
How Will HiFi Reads Help You Understand Human Health and Disease?
- Get Sanger-quality accuracy (>99.9%) and long read lengths (up to 25 kb) using a single technology solution
- Comprehensively detect and phase all variant types, from SNVs to structural variants, including 5% more variants in the medical exome
- Use the uniform coverage of HiFi reads to sequence through hard-to-access regions of the human genome including repeat expansions, promoters and flanking regions of transposable elements
HiFi Reads Can be Used Across a Range of Applications for Clinical Research
|Targeted Sequencing for accurate detection of all variant types in specific genes or regions using either an amplicon or amplification-free approaches|
|Variant Detection for comprehensive detection of all variants in the genome with high precision and recall|
|Whole Genome Sequencing for generation of reference-quality de novo genome assemblies|
RNA Sequencing to gain a complete view of transcript isoform diversity – no assembly required – for bulk or single-cell approaches
