Sequencing 101: From DNA to Discovery – The Steps of SMRT Sequencing

Starting a sequencing project can be daunting. First of all, there are several types of sequencing technologies, each based on unique processes. At PacBio, we use a technology called Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing.   Learn how SMRT Sequencing works in this short video:   Although each sequencing project is unique, there are five main steps to go from DNA to discovery with SMRT Sequencing:   Step 1: Sample Prep Similar to cooking, for the best results, start with the best ingredients. The ideal sequencing starter is high molecular weight DNA. There are plenty of kits on the market that…
