COMPLETE LONG READ
LONG READ SEQUENCING
The predominant method for large-scale population research analysis of whole-genomes has historically involved sequencing an individual genome using short-reads, and aligning to a consensus reference sequence. Shortcomings of this method include loss of haplotype knowledge, genetic phasing information, and structural variation. While short-read sequencing provides sufficient power to call single nucleotide variants (SNVs) across most of the consensus genome, a comprehensive analysis of the genome of each unique individual is not possible.
PerkinElmer has created an efficient workflow to automated the 10x Genomics® long read sequencing technology which includes high molecular weight gDNA extraction, sample QC, and sample prep, providing Linked-Reads sequencing capabilities for a variety of sample types including saliva, dried blood spots, blood, and plasma.
