Long-read sequencing service (PacBio Sequel System) at CGS


We are pleased to launch a new platform service for long-read sequencing (third-generation sequencing) at Centre for Genomic Sciences using PacBio SequelTM System.

Sequel System, the latest PacBio sequencer, is based on Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing technology. Sequel System SMRT Cells typically generate ~365,000 reads each, half of read lengths are more than 20 kb. Per cell sequencing output is about 7 Gb with 10-hour movie, 2.0 chemistry. Sequel System is ideal for rapid and cost-effective de novo genome assembly, structural variation analysis, gene annotation, targeted analysis, and much more.

The service now is ready to serve, and please come to join the sharing session (refer to below) for more service information.
