“Harnessing Nature’s Powerful Sequencing Engine:
Single-Molecule Real-Time DNA Sequencing”
Brian Kelly, M.S.
Sr. Sequencing Sales Specialist, Pacific Biosciences
Monday Mar 14, 2011
Pagano Conference Room, Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center
Pacific Biosciences Single Molecule Real Time (SMRTTM) DNA sequencing system enables, for the first time, massively parallel, uninterrupted observation of a single DNA polymerase molecule working in a continuous, processive manner. An overview of the SMRTTM sequencing technology will be provided, including current capabilities and performance trajectory. Additional capabilities of the platform include SMRT Biology applications such as direct detection of methylation and direct RNA sequencing. Through an early access program, PacBio sequencing is already providing the sequencing solution for a number of challenging studies that cannot be accomplished by traditional and second generation sequencing systems. Please join us for this presentation and following discussion regarding how this groundbreaking technology can be utilized in your research.
All are welcome and refreshments will be served!
