Long Read Sequencing

Our Research and Approach

The long read sequencing team within DNA Pipelines Operations at the Wellcome Sanger Institute provides support for research projects requiring longer sequence read lengths, enabling high quality de novo assembly for a wide range of prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms. The team employs a number of platforms to meet the research goals of the institute’s faculty groups.

Whilst following optimised SOPs for each technology (in use within the team), we are also happy to entertain more bespoke long read sequencing requests pushing each technology to its limit. This will often involve close collaboration between the long read team, customers and the relevant instrument manufacturers support teams.
