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)
