The SMRT APAC Grant powered by DNAnexus and in partnership with PacBio and Microsoft funds free de novo assembly services on PacBio SMRT Sequencing data for the most unique plant or animal genome
APAC Webinar: Best Practices for Rapid Reference-Quality Genome Assembly
September 5, 2018 at 10:00 AM China Standard Time
In partnership with PacBio and Microsoft, the SMRT APAC Grant powered by DNAnexus, will grant free reference-quality assembly services on PacBio SMRT Sequencing data for the most unique plant or animal genome and its direct contribution to the scientific community.
To enter, submit a 250-word proposal including a short description of your particular plant or animal genome, (up to 1.5 Gbp in size), and how its sequencing and de novo assembly would benefit the larger scientific community. The deadline for submission is 30th of September at 5:00pm CST, and the winner will be announced the week of October 8th.
Benefits of DNAnexus De Novo Assembly
Requiring massive computational resources to assemble reads or run structural variation detection across datasets, genome assembly is made even more challenging due to high levels of genetic diversity, repetitive elements, and duplicated genomic regions. Our bioinformatics expertise and computational power enable the delivery of high quality results, leveraging genome data and tools in a collaborative and secure ecosystem.
Fast, Refined, & Tailored
De Novo assembly in less than two weeks; Easily incorporate additional technologies to improve genome assembly and add additional bioinformatics tools (e.g. structural variant callers).
All data and results reside in our compliant and independently certified platform.
Cost-Efficient & Experienced
Save time, compute, and data handling resources; Technical expertise working with complex genomes (e.g. high ploidy, heterozygosity, and/or high repeats).
