SMRT Leiden: Ultra-fast comparative genomics of complex genomes at population scale

In this SMRT Leiden 2020 Online Virtual Event presentation, Erwin Datema of KeyGene shares his work on using high-throughput, accurate long-read sequencing technologies, such as PacBio HiFi sequencing, to drastically reduced the investment required to generate high-quality genome sequences. As a result, they have shifted away from the reference-centric view of the genome, and entered the pan-genome era. Here, Datema highlights some of the breakthrough algorithmic innovations KeyGene has developed to generate and analyze population-scale pan-genomes for plant genomes of all complexities and sizes.
