RSVP: akieu@pacificbiosciences.com for Pizza Lunch
Topics will include:
The fundamentals of Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing
How to improve assemblies and finish genomes using extra-long reads
(multiple kilobases)
How SMRT Sequencing can span difficult regions and comprehensively
characterize genomic variation
Examples include: rapid and complete assembly of bacterial genomes and
methylomes, gap-filling and hybrid assembly of large genomes,
repeat-expansion analysis, and haplotype phasing
