For more than two decades, AGI has been at the forefront of plant genomics, leading and/or collaborating on several major projects in the field (see Research).
Adopting the PacBio sequencing platform since 2014, AGI has so far been involved in more than 100 genome sequencing projects, and currently leverages on the highly accurate HiFi reads generated by the Sequel II and Revio instruments. More details about the possibilities that Revio sequencing offers are here.
Beyond whole genomes, AGI also sequences transcriptomes, bacterial genomes, 16S amplicons (V1-V9 region), and produces Hi-C libraries.
Some of the many applications of the PacBio technology:
