Highly accurate, closed bacterial genomes allow you to see both the SNPs and structural variations that drive the biology that matters to you, including AMR and virulence in clinical applications and metabolic adaptations in environmental isolates. With PacBio sequencing you can assemble through repetitive regions to reveal hidden biology, including insertion sequence elements and synthetic gene clusters.
Join our speakers as they share the latest advances in Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing, including:
- Details of the newly updated microbial whole genome sequencing pipeline, which leverages the multiplexing capabilities of the Sequel System to provide PacBio genomes at lower cost
- New insights into the ecophysiology of Minnesota microbes using long-read sequencing
- An understanding of how whole genome sequencing is used in pathogen surveillance programs at hospitals
