Library preparation and HiFi sequencing applications for AAV

  Wednesday, September 20 | 8:00 AM PDT | 11 AM EDT | 4 PM BST

Gene therapy is experiencing unprecedented growth. Accurate, comprehensive data is crucial for successful vector discovery, design, and characterization. HiFi sequencing offers a unique solution, enabling the sequencing of full-length AAV genomes with extraordinary precision.

Join us for this exciting digital event where Edward Oakeley, PhD, from Novartis will share and explain his experience and the developments of the HiFi AAV genome sequencing method over time and how his group has developed a modified library preparation protocol to maximize the usefulness of PacBio HiFi reads for AAV characterization. The modified library prep protocol includes adding an additional step for the synthesis of a complementary second strand in order to capture a greater variety of AAV molecules in the analysis.

By attending this webinar, you'll gain a deep understanding of the unique advantages that HiFi sequencing brings to the table, empowering you to make informed decisions that can significantly impact the safety and efficacy of gene therapy products.

Sign up now to secure your spot at this informative webinar and:

  • Hear real-world success stories: Inspiring accounts from a biopharmaceutical researcher who has harnessed the power of HiFi sequencing to achieve highly accurate reads for AAV vector discovery, design, and optimization. Be inspired by the success and apply the insights to elevate your own research endeavors.
  • Stay ahead of the curve: Discover the challenges of AAV sequencing and how using long-read sequencing can address these needs, ensuring you stay ahead in the rapidly evolving gene therapy landscape.
  • Unveil a powerful solution: Learn about PacBio's cutting-edge AAV solution and analyses for vector discovery, design, and characterization. With HiFi sequencing, you can unleash the true potential of your gene therapy research.
