De Novo Sequencing Of Genomes

You want to sequence a new genome? We recommend long reads

Achieve best quality genome de novo assemblies using a PacBio long read technology platform.

Long reads are essential for assembling genomes. Only long continuous stretches can span all sorts of repetitive regions in your genome and result in high quality assemblies with a reasonable number of contigs.

Working closely together with our customers, we perform de novo genome sequencing projects in the following stages:

  • Preparation of SMRTbell libraries with maximal insert size using BluePippin size selection
  • Sequence SMRTbell libraries on PacBio RSII
  • Large genomes: Eventually supplement with Illumina shotgun reads
  • Optional, bioinformatic analysis, e.g. assembly (only small genomes), annotation or comparison of different organisms
