ABOUT PACIFIC BIOSCIENCES:
Pacific Biosciences was founded in 2004 with the goal of developing a Single Molecule Real Time (SMRT™) approach for nucleic acid sequencing. Their stated mission is to transform the way humankind acquires, processes and interprets data from living systems through the design, development and commercialization of innovative tools for biological research. They have developed a novel approach to studying the synthesis and regulation of DNA, RNA and protein. Combining recent advances in nanofabrication, biochemistry, molecular biology, surface chemistry and optics, they created a powerful technology platform called single molecule, realtime, or SMRT™, technology. SMRT technology enables real-time analysis of biomolecules with single molecule resolution, which has the potential to transform our understanding of biological systems by providing a window into these systems that has not previously been open for scientific study.
