SMRT sequencing technology generates reads tens of kilobases in length allowing to assemble complete genomes and sequence full-length transcripts. Technology is free of systematic errors and achieves >99.999% consensus accuracy. No bias based on GC content means sequencing through regions inaccessible to other technologies. Capturing sequence data from native DNA or RNA molecules enables highly accurate long reads with >99% single-molecule accuracy. With no PCR amplification step, base modifications are directly detected during sequencing.
