Functional Genomics with PacBio Long-Read Sequencing

The latest generation of long-read single molecule real-time (SMRT) sequencing is revolutionising genomics. We are using the PacBio service at the Ramaciotti Centre for Genomics to sequence a number of organisms including novel yeast and bacterial genomes, and that major Aussie pest, the cane toad.

A number of student projects are available in collaboration with BABS and industry, including: improving PacBio de novo whole genome assembly; completing and annotating genomes; comparative genomics to identify molecular mechanisms for novel biological functions.
