When Accuracy Matters – Scientists Choose HiFi Sequencing
At PacBio we are passionate about accuracy in sequencing data. If your research could benefit from highly accurate long-read sequencing apply for this SMRT Grant!
Why is Accuracy So Important?
Because you need sequencing data you can trust for advanced biological insights.
HiFi reads are both long (up to 25 kb) and highly accurate (>99.9%) to generate complete, contiguous, and correct assemblies of even the most complex genomes with minimal compute resources.
“If your genome isn’t HiFi, it’s no longer reference grade.”
— Kevin McKernan, Medicinal Genomics
HiFi reads offer best-in-class detection of all variant types including single nucleotide variants (SNVs), indels, and structural variants (SV).
“HiFi Reads really allow us to call accurate structural variations and other types of variations that you can’t actually see in something like with short-read sequencing.”
— Jeremy Schmutz, Faculty Investigator, HudsonAlpha Institute of Biotechnology
