When accuracy matters, researchers choose HiFi sequencing

At PacBio, we are passionate about accuracy in sequencing data. If your research could benefit from highly accurate long-read sequencing, apply for this SMRT Grant.


Why is accuracy so important?

Because you need sequencing data you can trust for advanced biological insights.

HiFi reads are both long (up to 25 kb) and highly accurate (99.9%) to generate complete, contiguous, and correct assemblies of even the most complex genomes with minimal compute resources.

HiFi reads offer best-in-class detection of all variant types including single nucleotide variants (SNVs), indels, and structural variants (SVs).

The Arizona Genomics Institute leverages a two-decade experience in generating genomic resources for modern agricultural and biological research. Leveraging old-school DNA and RNA extraction methods to produce highly purified sequencing substrates, AGI has delivered high-quality PacBio data since 2014.  
Uppsala Genome Center (UGC) is the key provider of long-read sequencing in Sweden. The Sequel, Sequel II and Sequel IIe systems are all operated at UCG along with significant compute/GPU resources for bioinformatic analysis. With this equipment, UGC provides services for projects including human/clinical sequencing, and high-quality genome assembly of a large number of animals, plants, and other species.
Uppsala Genome Center is one out of three partners in the National Genomics Infrastructure (NGI), an internationally leading infrastructure in genomics, and a unique resource for the Swedish research community. NGI is hosted by the Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab).  
Genomics WA is the certified service provider of PacBio Sequel II system services in Perth, Australia. We deliver high quality data from a variety of samples including human, microbial, plants, and crops.
