A SINGLE MOLECULE REAL-TIME DNA SEQUENCING FACILITY - MATCHING CONTRIBUTION

Grant number: LE150100035 | Funding period: 2015 - 2015

Abstract

A PacBio SMRT sequencing facility will be established and used to accelerate ten specific research programs across a breadth of biological disciplines at two institutions. A specialised high throughput DNA sequencing technology called Single Molecule Real-Time (SMRT) sequencing developed by Pacific Biosciences (PacBio) is revolutionising biological research. SMRT sequencing allows researchers to discover important information in DNA and RNA molecules that are missed by other modern DNA sequencing approaches. It is expected that this facility will also be a key infrastructure resource for the wider scientific community, helping to address fundamental questions in biology.
