• For Metagenomic Studies, HiFi Reads Deliver Higher-Quality Data

    2 days ago - By Pacific Biosciences

    A new paper from scientists at the Max Planck Institute offers a great look at how HiFi sequencing delivers significantly improved results for metagenome studies compared to short-read data. In this project, HiFi reads led to higher-quality assemblies with less coverage and gave more insight into these complex microbial communities.
