Eye-Opener Session

Covering the whole genome: How HiFi sequencing enables the most complete view for genomics

Tuesday, March 30, 9:30 am – 10:45 am


Justin Blethrow, PhD
Staff Product Manager

PacBio’s highly accurate long reads offer an unparalleled view of the genome, revealing all forms of variation from SNPs to large structural variants. HiFi reads also provide the best view of the transcriptome through full length sequencing of transcript isoforms. Now, HiFi sequencing also provides direct insight into the vertebrate epigenome and gene regulation through automatic calling of 5-methyl cytosine in native DNA.
