Join us January 12-16 at PAG XXVII in San Diego, California and find out how Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing can help advance your research.
Below you’ll discover the many ways to engage with us at the conference and we look forward to meeting you. 

Not able to attend PAG? Then make sure to sign-up below to receive the recording of our PAG workshop and copies of the posters we’ll present at the conference.

Stop by our booth and chat directly with PacBio staff who will be on-hand to answer your questions and share insights. And while you’re there, fill out a raffle card to win free SMRT Sequencing from one of our Certified Services Providers (CSP) exhibiting at the conference. The prize includes four SMRT Cells, reagents, sequencing, and analysis support from Computomics. We’ll be giving away two prizes!
How it works:


1. Complete the entry form and submit at our booth.
2. Winners will be announced on Monday at 12:00 p.m. and Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. at our booth. You need not be present to win. 

For an extra chance to win the raffle, collect all 9 PacBio trading cards in the exhibit hall. Visit our booth and our CSPs on the show floor and then show us your complete collection for an extra entry.
