Organisms and biology are immensely complex, and to truly understand disease mechanisms, heritability, potential diagnoses, and development of therapies, we need access to more genomic information. Linked-Reads constructs long-range information from short-reads to provide access to hidden and inaccessible information. With Linked-Reads, researchers now have the power to resolve ambiguous single nucleotide variants, provide phasing and haplotype information, identify structural variants, and assemble genomes without the need for a reference sequence. 

Download this poster from The Scientist, sponsored by 10X Genomics to learn about linked reads, structural variants, and resolving haplotypes!
