PacBio APAC Webinar Series

HiFi Metagenomics 101:
From Sample to High Resolution Genomes


Thursday, 28 January 2021


14:00 - 15:00 Singapore Time

PacBio’s HiFi sequencing is currently the best-in-class data type for various genomic applications. Specifically in metagenomics applications, the combination of length and accuracy of HiFi reads allow a much higher resolution of the underlying complex populations.

In this webinar, we will provide recommendations and best practices for wet-lab workflows in order to generate the highest quality HiFi metagenomic data using PacBio Sequel system.

Then, we will discuss the bioinformatics workflow starting from CCS to command line analysis of HiFi data.

Finally, we will also take a deep dive into a shotgun metagenomics analysis to demonstrate how the high accuracy of HiFi sequencing allows the assembly of many complete or near-complete metagenomic-assembled-genomes (MAG).
