At ESHG, SMRT Sequencing Contributed to De Novo Assemblies, Structural Variant Discovery

The annual meeting of the European Society of Human Genetics — held last month in the sleek Swedish Exhibition & Congress Center in Gothenburg, Sweden — was a terrific assembly of thousands of scientists who are together pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in genome research. The PacBio team particularly enjoyed seeing so many impressive ESHG presentations with scientific results from SMRT Sequencing pipelines featuring applications such as de novo whole genome sequencing, structural variant detection, the Iso-Seq method, and targeted sequencing.   Mark Chaisson For example, in a plenary talk, the University of Southern California’s Mark Chaisson (@mjpchaisson) spoke…
