Best Practices for Using the Iso-Seq Method for Plant & Animal Genome Annotation
Speaker: Elizabeth Tseng, Ph.D. Principal Scientist, Bioinformatics/Marketing, PacBio
Date and Time: Tuesday, May 14th, 2019 12:00 PM KST
In this webinar, Elizabeth will review the current guidelines for experimental design, bioinformatics processing, and quality control metrics for using the Iso-Seq method for plant and animal genome annotation. The Iso-Seq method can characterize full-length transcripts without the need for computational transcript assembly and is fully supported bioinformatically through PacBio’s SMRT Analysis software that outputs high-quality, full-length transcript sequences. Furthermore, the single molecule nature of the Iso-Seq method enables detection of allelic specific isoform expression.
