Tutorial: Bioinformatics Lunch & Learn – HiFi Assembly

Tutorial
Sequel II System
Analysis

Description +

The release of the PacBio Sequel II System in 2019 brought dramatic throughput improvements and protocols for producing a new data type, highly accurate long reads or HiFi reads. PacBio is the only sequencing technology to offer highly accurate long reads (HiFi reads) that provide Sanger-quality accuracy (>99%) with the read lengths needed for assembly of complex genomes. The long length and high accuracy of HiFi reads makes them the ideal starting point for many applications, and one area of major interest is genome assembly. HiFi assembly is faster, cheaper, more accurate, and easier to phase than standard long-read assembly. In this webcast, you will learn: The difference between long reads and HiFi reads; the strengths of HiFi read assembly for human, plant, animal, and insect genomes; step-by-step instruction on how to assemble HiFi reads using the publicly available FALCON package (https://github.com/PacificBiosciences/pb-assembly)
