On the 10th of October, Rasmus Brøndum from Leymus Genomics will be presenting an exciting new synthetic long-read sequencing technology that functions on existing short-read Illumina® sequencers. LoopSeq®, developed by Loop Genomics, is an innovative sequencing technology that provides previously inaccessible layers of information from Illumina®-generated sequences. This enables a wide variety of diverse sequencing applications, including sequencing of microbiomes, transcriptomes, targeted amplicons, and more.

 

Some of the benefits of LoopSeq® include:

–           Uses your existing Illumina sequencer – no extra instruments

–           Single-molecule sequencing

–           Multiplex single-tube workflow

–           Consensus error correction – error rates reduced 40x vs. standard short reads

–           Full isoform mapping for transcriptome research

–           True quantitative results due to transcript counting using UMIs and full-length reads

–           Better resolution on species and strain level for microbiome research
