Characterizing C9ORF72 repeat expansions and transcripts using HiFi sequencing

  Americas/Europe broadcast: Wednesday, May 22, 8:00 AM PDT | 11:00 AM EDT | 4:00 PM BST
  Asia-Pacific broadcast: Thursday, May 23, 11:00 AM SGT

The rapid advancement in sequencing technologies has significantly influenced our approach to understanding and tackling complex genetic disorders, notably neurodegenerative diseases and conditions characterized by repeat expansions. Among these technologies, HiFi sequencing stands out for its accuracy and depth, providing insights that were previously beyond reach. This webinar will focus on how PureTarget and Kinnex solutions harness the power of HiFi sequencing to illuminate the genetic landscapes of these challenging disorders.

HiFi sequencing's precision and comprehensive coverage make it an invaluable tool in the genetic researcher's arsenal. The PureTarget repeat expansion panel, with its tailored approach to sequencing regions known for repeat expansions, and the Kinnex kit, dedicated to uncovering the spectrum of transcriptomic diversity, represent the forefront of these efforts. Together, they offer a synergistic solution that enables researchers to explore the genetic and epigenetic intricacies of neurodegenerative diseases with unprecedented clarity.

This webinar aims to dive deep into these technologies, showcasing their potential to revolutionize our understanding and treatment of complex genetic conditions.

Attend to:

  • Benefit from the knowledge of Mayo Clinic scientist Evan Udine, on using the PureTarget and Kinnex kits, alongside other PacBio technologies, to push the boundaries of neurodegenerative disease research.
  • Explore how the PureTarget repeat expansion panel offers comprehensive sequence information for pathogenic repeats, providing clarity where short reads and traditional methods may fall short.
  • Understand how the Kinnex full-length RNA kit complements genome sequencing by detailing the transcriptome complexities of neurodegenerative diseases.
