European Biotechnology News-- Exploiting the genome
PacBio, the UK’s Sanger Institute and Public Health England will analyse the genomes of 3,000 bacterial pathogens.
( "PacBio’s 3rd generation SMRT sequencing technology achieves the longest read lengths and highest consensus accuracy in the industry. Because the technology can directly detect base modifications, the epigenomes for bacteria can also be obtained with no additional data acquisition, providing unprecedented insight into the role of DNA methylation in bacterial pathogenicity.")!!
