As an original adopter of the single molecule, real- time (SMRT) sequencing technology, MGI continues to work with the latest technology, a Sequel System. The run time ranges from 30 minutes to 20 hours per SMRT cell with 1 to 12 SMRT cells per run.
Key applications for long-read technology include:
- De novo genome assembly
- Structural variation analysis
- Gene annotation
- Targeted analysis
- Whole genome analysis
- RNA isoform sequencing (Iso-Seq)
