DNA/RNA sequencing -PacBio Sequencer

PacBio sequencing platform is a long-read sequencing platform, which is also known as one of the Third-Generation Sequencing(TGS) technologies. The core technology, single-molecule real-time(SMRT), empowers the generation of reads with tens of kilo-base in length. On base of “Sequencing-by-Synthesis”, single nucleotide resolution is achieved by Zero-mode waveguide(ZMW), where only limited volume at the bottom(site of molecule synthesis), is illuminated. In addition, SMRT sequencing largely avoids sequence-specific bias in NGS system, in that most of PCR amplification steps are not required in library construction process.
