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 […]

Being positive about Oxford Nanopore




In case you missed it, a Japanese team jumped the ship from Oxford Nanopore’s MinION early access program and published a paper and the data giving a negative picture about what Oxford Nanopore sequencing can do. If you are not following Oxford Nanopore, there is a good chance that you can take the paper at […]

Nick Loman’s Talk on Nanopore Sequencing Using MinION at #UKGS2014




Nick Loman gave a first-ever talk presenting user generated Nanopore sequencing data from MinION.  (The first-ever look at Oxford Nanopore data, not generated by a user, was seen at last year AGBT .) Oxford Nanopore launched EAP late last year and possibly 100’s of users are part of the program and generating data from MinION. […]

Behold. Oxford Nanopore Reads Are Here




Long reads are here to rule. Thanks to Nick Loman from Birmingham UK, now we can have our first look at long reads from Oxford Nanopore. Nick Loman has tweeted and published on figshare the first long read from Oxford Nanopore MinION. It is a 8476 base long DNA sequence from Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain 910 produced […]

And So Begins Oxford Nanopore MinION Sequencing




Oxford Nanopore MinION has started reaching the hands the researchers, who were selected for the first wave of Oxford Nanopore’s Early Access Program to try out MinION. And so begins nanopore sequencing experiments. Thanks to Mick Watson and Nick Loman. The lucky researchers started announcing the arrival of spring gift on Twitter. So far, it […]
