Virtual Global Summit: Third generation sequencing for diagnosis of rare disease

In this PacBio Virtual Global Summit 2020 presentation, Neil Miller of Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City describes how third generation sequencing offers sensitive single nucleotide variant detection, variant phasing and the ability to detect large structural variants and complex genomic events which may provide utility in the diagnosis of rare disease. This talk will discuss the use of PacBio HiFi whole genome sequencing in the Genomic Answers for Kids program at Children’s Mercy, Kansas City and how these data are being used to search for disease causing variants in cases that have remained unsolved after clinical exome and whole genome sequencing.
