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 (Pippin HT ) 20 kb libraries and P6/C4 chemistry, we are able to achieve read lengths averaging 12 kb and longer, generating ~750 Mb-1 Gb per SMRT cell.
