A recent paper in Nature shows what the PacBio sequencer at the Scientific Genomics Platform at the MDC can do. 

Scientists at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) have now presented a new technique in the journal Nature that enables us to understand this process dynamically. Using a “random generator,” research teams led by Hans-Reimer Rodewald and Thomas Höfer (DFKZ) labeled hematopoietic stem cells with genetic barcodes. This allowed them to clearly identify their descendants and track which cell types emerged from which stem cell. The technique offers new insights into the development of various tissues and carcinogenesis.
