When Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) sequencing was first released, it promised a huge shift in our approach to sequencing – moving away from methods that had up to that point been validated and entrenched in labs across the world. In this guide, PacBio's Nick Sisneros provides some insight into SMRT Sequencing and the tips and tricks that will ensure success in the template prep and sample preparation for use on this sequencing platform.READ MORE
