Connecting molecules, enabling full-length discoveries with Kinnex kits

Monday, January 15 | 12:50 – 3:00 PM PST Town and Country Hotel, Room C

Please join us to learn how researchers are utilizing Kinnex from PacBio to transform their multiomic research. From RNA-Seq to 16S at scale, these applications can now produce HiFi reads at much higher orders of magnitude on PacBio long-read sequencing platforms. Attend this session to hear the latest on how HiFi sequencing applications, on our high-throughput Revio system, are being used for comprehensive characterization of plants, animals, and their surrounding ecosystems.

Introductory remarks and workshop overview


CoLab #1: Exploring the potential clinical utility of HiFi sequencing for homologous loci (pseudogenes)

Date/Time: Thursday, November 2 | 10:10 – 10:40 AM EDT

Location: Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Exhibit Hall, CoLab Theater #2

Alexander Hoischen, PhD
Assistant Professor, Radboud University Medical Centre

PacBio HiFi long-read sequencing has the potential to become a single front-line assay for interrogating rare disease cohorts because of its ability to accurately call and phase all classes of variants. An international group of clinical researchers and PacBio have been collaborating to study the efficacy of HiFi sequencing in interrogating the many possible genetic mechanisms that underlie rare diseases. This presentation will provide an overview of the group’s goals and activities and will share recent results, particularly around correctly resolving clinically relevant genes that lie in areas of high sequence homology or otherwise complex regions of the human genome.

CoLab #2: Expanding NGS truth sets with long-reads: more comprehensive variant detection in a multi-generational pedigree

Date/Time: Friday, November 3 | 10:10 – 10:40 AM EDT

Location: Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Exhibit Hall, CoLab Theater #2

Post-Doctoral Fellow, University of Washington, Eichler Lab

Zev Kronenberg, PhD
Senior Manager, Computational Biology, PacBio

Accurate long-read sequencing characterizes the full spectrum of genetic variation across the genome, but variant calling software is still catching up to the sequencing technologies. We have generated deep Pacific Biosciences (PacBio) high-fidelity (HiFi), ultra-long Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT), Strand-seq, and Illumina whole-genome sequencing data to construct near-T2T, phased genome assemblies from primary material obtained from a 4-generation, 28-member CEPH pedigree (1463). We are constructing a more comprehensive and validated catalog of >8 million single-nucleotide variants, indels, short tandem repeats, and structural variants, including a detailed assessment of inversion polymorphisms that associate with disease risk. The use of multiple orthogonal technologies, near-T2T phased-genome assemblies, and a multi-generation family allow us to assess inheritance patterns and to create a “truth set” for all classes of human genetic variation upon which to test and benchmark new technologies.


  • All poster presentations are scheduled for Monday, January 15 in the Exhibit Hall.
