Tyson Clark, Ph.D., Director, Applications Development, PacBio
Complex eukaryotic genomes often contain regions that are challenging for standard targeting sequencing methods because they are difficult to amplify. This includes the nearly 30 known disease-associated repeat expansions in the human genome. We have developed a novel, amplification-free technique that employs the CRISPR/Cas9 system for specific targeting of individual human genes. This method, in conjunction with SMRT Sequencing’s long reads, high consensus accuracy, and uniform coverage, allows the sequencing of complex genomic regions that cannot be investigated with other technologies. Using human genomic DNA samples and this strategy, we have successfully targeted the loci of a number of repeat expansion disorders (HTT, FMR1, ATXN10, and C9orf72). With this data, we demonstrate the ability to isolate hundreds of individual on-target molecules and accurately sequence through long repeat stretches, regardless of the extreme GC-content, followed by accurate sequencing on the PacBio RSII or Sequel System.
Aaron Wenger, Ph.D., Staff Scientist, PacBio
Most of the base pairs that differ between two human genomes are in intermediate-sized structural variants (50 bp to 5 kb), the majority of which are accurately detected only by PacBio long-read SMRT Sequencing. We will present the newest laboratory and bioinformatics protocols for structural variant detection on the PacBio Sequel System; discuss the sequence coverage required to achieve a target specificity; and present brief case studies.
