In the past few months, Centre for Genomic Sciences has worked with several investigators on a number of NGS projects using SMRT technology (PacBio P6-C4 chemistry). Now we are ready to share our experience with you on SMRT!

We will tell you how CGS may assist you with PacBio sequencing. Two investigators will share their first-hand experience. And a PacBio representative will be here to update everyone about the latest news of PacBio sequencing and much more. All these will be enriched with a nice coffee session!
