Pacific Biosciences Library Preparation and Sequencing

We are an HHMI-designated Pacific Biosciences (PacBio) sequencing site offering services for library preparation as well as sample sequencing on PacBio RS Single Molecule Real-Time (SMRT) sequencing platform. SMRT sequencing is a third generation sequencing technology that allows for long-read sequencing. With size-selected (Blue Pippin) 20 kb libraries and P5/C3 chemistry, we are able to achieve read lengths averaging 8 kb and longer, generating ~400 Mb per SMRT cell.
