Long-read sequencing is a highly accurate approach that can be used to:
Long-read sequencing technology has the potential to improve the efficiency and accuracy of many existing DNA sequencing applications while increasing the coverage of clinically important genes.
These advantages allow for the phased re‐sequencing of human genomes and rapid de novo sequencing of plant and animal genomes.
The Illumina Long-Read Applications Ecosystem is a group of partnerships dedicated to ensuring the delivery of high-quality data for fully featured genomes, including phasing, detection of structural variants, and de novo assembly of all species.
The combination of our core sequencing technology, along with our partners’ linked-read preps, assembly protocols, and analysis pipelines, are allowing Illumina to bring advanced long-read application solutions to the market. The Illumina Long-Read Ecosystem leverages the following partner products and services:
