De Novo Sequencing


De Novo sequencing sequences the whole genome sequence of unidentified microorganisms or animals and plants, and genetic factors of sarcoma and disorders can be discovered from the obtained results. By utilizing both the short read from Illumina Hiseq and long read from DNA Link’s Pacbio RS II, we provide service optimized for genome assemble finishing.

PacBio RS II System Read length distribution(P6-C4 lasted chemistry)


In De Novo assemble, long reads have an advantage of creating long contigs from having many long read composition, and Pacific Biosciences SMRT (Single Molecule Real Time) RS, which is a third generation sequencer, also has an advantage of ability to read at length a single molecule in real time without the amplification step. Long reads allow to overcome repeat and GC rich region, and obtain single contig. In addition, it is also possible to obtain an optimal outcome by performing a hybrid assembly between long reads and short reads and adjusting error and accuracy accordingly.
