Zoom in on Genetic Variation for a Better Future
Could your research benefit from highly accurate long-read sequencing? Apply for this SMRT Grant! — Now including free DNA Extraction with Circulomics
With highly accurate long reads, known as HiFi reads, you can capture genetic variation to help organisms adapt to changing climates, conserve endangered species, and produce the higher yielding, more nutritious, and pest and disease resistant foods needed to feed future generations.
Explore the range of HiFi sequencing applications
Get to know all all the benefits of HiFi sequencing.
|Whole Genome Sequencing
Explore chromosome-scale differences with reference-quality genome assemblies
Detect all variants, from SNPs to SVs, to uncover functional insights
Characterize alternative splicing with full-length isoform sequencing
Classify specific variants of interest with amplicons up to 20 kb
The 2021 Plant and Animal Sciences SMRT Grant is Open
Apply to Win Free Sequencing to Reveal Novel Genetic Variation
