HudsonAlpha Chooses Sequel System for NIH-Funded Program Focused on Challenging Pediatric Cases

At the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, scientists are building on advances in agricultural research to power a clinical pediatric research program. For this work, they’re using the Sequel System to perform whole-genome sequencing on trios of children with developmental disabilities and their parents. HudsonAlpha researchers have been using SMRT Sequencing to resolve challenging plant genomes, deploying a Sequel System and a PacBio RS II for these complex projects. The successfulness of that program led the institute to add a second Sequel System for use in sequencing human genomes. The organization is part of the NIH-funded Clinical Sequencing Exploratory Research Program,…
