High-quality genomes of small organisms, such as insects, are essential resources to understand their biology and combat them as disease vectors and agricultural pests. However, the small body size of many species poses a challenge when sequencing single individuals with long-read technologies.
Join us to hear how several researchers have overcome these challenges using the new low and ultra-low DNA input methods with highly accurate long reads (HiFi reads) from PacBio.
Attend this webinar to understand:
- Advantages of using HiFi reads to sequence and de novo assemble genomes of single individuals
- Methods and protocols to generate high-quality genome assemblies from as low as 5 ng of input DNA
