Communications Center MDC.C

PacBio Day Berlin

Join us for an afternoon of SMRT Science

Learn how the new Sequel® II System delivers highly accurate long reads while reducing project costs and timelines with ~8x more data.

Lunch will be provided, but space is limited.
Register now free of charge to save your spot.

Enter our SMRT Draw: Tell us on the day how you would use SMRT Sequencing for de novo assembly or RNA Sequencing of full-length transcripts to enter to win free sequencing from The Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (Terms & Conditions apply).
