Genome Sciences Pacific Biosystems Facility



The single molecule real-time (SMRT) sequencing is a third generation sequencing that allows for long-read sequencing. With the RSII technology, we are able to get an average of 4-5 Kb of sequence read with 3-20 Kb library preparations, generating about 400 Mb per SMRT cell. We are an HHMI-designated Pacific Biosciences (PacBio) sequencing site offering services for library preparation as well as sample sequencing.

  • We provide library preparations and sequencing for:
    – Large-insert gDNA (3-20 Kb)
    – BAC-based DNA
    – Purified PCR products
    – Whole genome sequencing small genomes
