Iso-Seq (Full-Length Isoform Sequencing)


Single Molecular, Real-Time (SMRT®) long-read technology, through PacBio Sequel, enables sequencing of contiguous full-length transcripts. This method, called Iso-Seq, avoids errors that can occur with short-read approaches, and captures each transcript’s start, polyadenylation, and splice sites from a single read.

Potential applications include better annotated genomes, detection of gene fusion, and discovery of novel isoforms.

The capabilities of Iso-Seq are greatly enhanced on the PacBio Sequel system compared to the older RSII. Azenta Life Sciences, formerly GENEWIZ has further optimized the process to exceed PacBio’s benchmarks in output and read length. Learn more here.
