Long Reads Sequencing

The KMSR offers long-read sequencing solutions from PacBio and Oxford Nanopore. Compared to short read sequencing technology, they provide the following advantages:

  • Long reads with no amplification.
  • Direct detection of epigenetic modifications on native DNA.
  • Direct sequencing through regions of the genome inaccessible or difficult to analyze by short-read platforms.
  • Uniform coverage of the genome as they are not as sensitive to GC content as short-read platforms.
