    PacBio HiFi sequencing for the de novo genome assembly of microbial, fungal, plant, animal and human genomes has been described in hundreds of publications, and its best-in-class performance has been validated by the scientific community in many benchmark comparisons. In another recent technology comparison study entitled “ Benchmarking of long-read sequencing, assemblers and polishers for yeast genome ” by Dr. Chen-Guang Liu, Dr. Zhuo Wang and collaborators, the researchers performed a very detailed evaluation of PacBio HiFi and Oxford Nanopore Technologies sequencing and assemblers for...
