UCSD Team Develops PacBio Sequencing Method to ID Structural Variant Breakpoints | GenomeWeb

Researchers from the University of California, San Diego have developed a sequencing method using Pacific Biosciences' RS machine to identify breakpoints for structural variations, which they think may eventually have applications in cancer, including early diagnosis and monitoring patients' response to treatment.

The team published a proof of concept of the method using cancer cell lines in Genome Research earlier this month.
