Run through your microbial hurdles with the Sequel System
With PacBio long read sequencing, you can generate near-complete de novo assemblies of microbes and their accessory plasmids, confidently resolve viral diversity, and characterize microbial populations down to the species level.
The 2017 Microbial SMRT Grant program is now closed for submissions.
The winner will be announced this fall on this page and on our blog. Thanks to all the participants and our partner, the University of Maryland’s Genomics Resource Center (GRC) at the Institute for Genome Sciences (IGS).
