Sequencing by Binding (SBB): increase accuracy of short-read genomes

Speaker: Jonas Korlach, PhD – Chief Scientific Officer, PacBio
Date/Time: Saturday, 10 June 2023 9:00-9:30

Sequencing by Binding (SBB) is a new short-read sequencing method which separates the labeled nucleotide binding step from the nucleotide incorporation step, allowing for optimization of each step separately and thereby resulting in higher sequencing accuracy. I will describe the performance and benchmarking of SBB sequencing, following by examples where higher short-read sequencing accuracy can be a benefit, including higher accuracy in sequencing long homonucleotide stretches, and higher sensitivity and specificity for rare variant detection for cell-free DNA and infectious disease applications.

Shining light on the dark genome: accurate quantification of tandem repeats for translational and basic research

Speaker: Egor Dolzhenko, PhD – Bioinformatics Scientist, PacBio
Date/Time: Sunday, 11 June 2023 11:00-11:15

Tandem repeats (TRs) are genomic regions consisting of repetitions of a DNA sequence. TRs are associated with many genetic disorders and harbor up to 80% of structural variants. TRs are difficult to analyze with short-read sequencing data due to their repetitiveness and structural complexity. The standard computational methods for variant calling often do not correctly resolve variation in TR regions.
