Sequel System Data Release: Iso-Seq Results for Hummingbird and Zebra Finch Brain Tissue

[caption id="attachment_18776" align="alignright" width="300"] Anna's hummingbird photo by Pat Durkin[/caption] If you’re interested in avian vocal learning or want to explore a PacBio Iso-Seq data set generated with the Sequel System, we have good news. We’ve just released data from Iso-Seq interrogations of brain tissue from two avian models of vocal learning, Anna’s hummingbird (Calypte anna) and zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata), sequenced in collaboration with the Erich Jarvis and Olivier Fedrigo labs at the Rockefeller University. If you’re not familiar with the Iso-Seq method, it’s the long-read sequencing answer to short-read RNA-seq studies. By using SMRT Sequencing for a transcriptome…
