ASHG 2017 Day 4: CRISPR/Cas9 Targeting and Structural Variant Calling CoLabs

It was a packed house as PacBio scientists led the inaugural CoLabs presentation at ASHG17 A new program at ASHG this year came from the CoLaboratories, or educational theaters featuring 30-minute talks on a variety of clinical, laboratory, and data analysis topics. We were honored to present in the inaugural CoLabs today, with PacBio scientists offering tips on CRISPR/Cas9 enrichment as well as long-read whole genome sequencing for structural variant discovery. Tyson Clark, Ph.D Tyson Clark, director of applications development, gave a talk titled “Targeted Enrichment without Amplification and SMRT Sequencing of Repeat-Expansion Disease Causative Genomic Regions.” He demonstrated a…
