PacBio Says 'Strobe Sequencing' Increases Effective Read Length of Single-Molecule Sequencer

At last week's Biology of Genomes meeting at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, the company showed that by turning the system's lasers off and on during a run it can generate longer reads with gaps that could be useful for sorting out complex repeat regions in the genome.
