Microbial Genomics Webinar Series - Part 2


Resolving Viral Evolution and Quasispecies Diversity with HiFi Sequencing


Tuesday, August 10, 2021


10:00 a.m. PDT
1:00 p.m. EDT
6:00 p.m. BST

Sign up to watch this webinar OnDemand, and revisit the other webinars in our Microbial Genomics Webinar Series listed below, to learn how scientists are using highly accurate long-read sequencing to make new discoveries about bacteria, viruses, and the complex systems they inhabit and influence.

Attendee Takeaways:

  • Understand HiFi sequencing methods for resolving viral diversity in complex systems
  • Examples of how HiFi sequencing can phase entire viral genes or genomes, revealing quasispecies diversity within patients
  • How combining fully-phased minor variant data with other data types provides insights into viral evolution, immune escape, and drug resistance
