• The HiFi difference - Getting the right answer

    15 days ago - By Pacific Biosciences

    The combined accuracy and length of PacBio HiFi reads is utilized by an ever-increasing number of researchers, with numerous new publications and preprints appearing every week. Several months ago, Illumina announced an attempt to imitate HiFi reads by synthetically creating longer sequence information from short reads, which they named Infinity reads. This is in response to the broad recognition of the value of HiFi long-read sequencing in the field of human genomics, with studies using HiFi reads describing the improved resolution of complex genomic regions for LD studies , the greater...
