Do you have this year’s SMRTest Microbe? Apply Now!

As announced at ASM Microbe last month, the GRC and PacBio are once again co-sponsoring the “SMRTest Microbe” Grant Program. We are accepting research proposals for one more week!

Submit a short application (<250 words) describing your microbe or microbial community and how it would benefit from the long reads, high accuracy and direct detection of epigenetic modifications generated by SMRT Sequencing. One winner will be selected by a panel of scientists and will receive up to four library preparations and a sequencing run using up to eight SMRT Cells. Sequencing and bioinformatics analysis will be performed by the GRC, a PacBio Certified Service Provider.

Are you interested in microbial genomes, complex populations, or methylomes? If so, submit your proposals by July 15, 2016.

Other restrictions apply. See official rules.
