Oxford Nanopore Updates: Reveals the nanopore used in Nanopore devices




Storified tweets from Oxford Nanopore’s technology focus Google hangout by Clive Brown.  Briefly, Oxford Nanopore revealed the pore it uses in its devices. It is not MSP pore. :) It is using CsgG pore from E.coli. And it is using heavily engineered CsgG with over 700 mutations (with license) to make it a better pore […]

Read Until: Real time selective sequencing using Oxford Nanopore MinION




AGBT 2016 is happening now and it has been two years since we heard about the first MinION experiment at AGBT 2014. It has been two years since Oxford Nanopore selected participants for its MinION early access program. And  Oxford Nanopore has come a long way since the last two years. Two very interesting papers […]

Software tools for Oxford Nanopore sequence data




Nature Methods has a nice technology feature on Oxford Nanopore,  MAP program, and the experiences of 1000’s of researchers who were part of Oxford Nanopore’s MAP program. Nanopores: a sequencer in your backpack Among  other interesting things about Nanopore sequencing, it also has a list of software tools developed for analyzing Oxford Nanopore sequence data […]
