The latest PacBio sequencer, the SequelTM System, has been installed at the CGS this summer. Since then we have worked with several researchers on different applications such as full-length 16S sequencing, amplicon sequencing, whole genome de novo sequencing, Iso-Seq etc. In this sharing session, two local research groups will share their first-hand experiences, PacBio representative will provide an update on the technology and our own colleagues will discuss service logistics and data handling. Subsidized experience-price for service will also be announced.
