Are you ready to unlock your next great discovery with highly accurate long-read sequencing?
In this online workshop, which is being held in conjunction with ASHG 2020 but open to everyone, PacBio Chief Scientific Officer Jonas Korlach will introduce the new Sequel IIe System as well as our latest applications using highly accurate long reads (HiFi reads), including human WGS for variant detection, de novo genome assembly, single-cell RNA sequencing, and targeted sequencing using PCR and No-Amp methods.
We will also be joined by Emily Farrow (Children’s Mercy, Kansas City)—who will share her experience using long-read sequencing to identify novel genetic variations as part of the Genomic Answers for Kids study—and Hagen Tilgner (Cornell University)—who will discuss his pioneering work around single-cell isoform analysis in the nervous system.

Highly accurate long reads (HiFi reads) provide comprehensive variant detection for both genomes and transcriptomes. New improvements in protocols and analysis methods have increased scalability and accuracy of variant calling. As demonstrated in the precisionFDA Truth Challenge V2, HiFi reads (>99% accurate, 15 kb - 20 kb) now outperform short reads for single nucleotide and structural variant calling and match for small indels. This includes calling >30,000 small variants and >10,000 structural variants missed by short reads, many in medically relevant genes.
For Single-Cell RNA sequencing, HiFi reads allow for precise detection of UMIs and single cell barcodes while still providing full-length transcript isoform information. Any single cell platform that produces full-length cDNA can be sequenced on the PacBio Systems, with the Sequel II System generating up to 3 million full-length reads per SMRT Cell 8M, sufficient to characterize ~3,000 single cells.
