Pacific Biosciences has developed Single Molecule Real Time (SMRT™) DNA sequencing technology. This technology enables, for the first time, the observation of natural DNA synthesis by a DNA polymerase in real time. This approach is based on eavesdropping on a single DNA polymerase molecule working in a continuous, processive manner, and this transformative technology delivers long reads, fast time to result, and built-in flexibility, enabling a new paradigm in genomic analysis. We will be presenting on the technology and applications of this cutting edge technology.



Kind Reminder: Please take off your lab coat before coming to the seminar.
