The DNA sequencing technologies in use today produce either highly accurate short reads or less-accurate long reads. Using new advances in circular consensus sequencing (CCS) we have improved the accuracy of single-molecule real-time (SMRT) sequencing to generate reads which are both long (>15 kb) and very accurate (>99.9%). Using these new highly accurate long reads (HiFi reads), we demonstrate performance improvements across many applications including comprehensive variant detection in human genomes, de novo assembly of plant and animal genomes, full-length RNA transcript isoform sequencing and metagenomics community sequencing. When combined with recent improvements in ZMW density, polymerase speed and analog chemistry - introduced with the SMRT Cell 8M, Sequel II System and 2.0 chemistry - we demonstrate scalability of the method for affordable HiFi sequencing for large-scale study designs. This has resulted in broad adoption of HiFi for multiple global genome projects including Solve-RD, HGSVC, HGRP, VGP and All of US.
