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 […]

Oxford Nanopore MinION Data from E.Coli K-12 Genome is here

The wait is over. The long sought after data from Oxford Nanopore is here. Almost three months ago, we got a glimpse of a single read from Nick Loman. Now, Nick Loman organizing the really awesome Nanopore themed Google Hangout and announced that Oxford Nanopore MinION data from E.Coli K 12 substrain. The E. coli […]

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. […]

Oxford Nanopore MinION Updates: Poretools, Improved Chemistry, SNP Calling, Scaling up Nanopore Sequencing

After a few quite weeks on the news from Oxford Nanopore front, this week had a flurry of activities on Oxford Nanopore. Just like before, NIck Loman was behind person behind all interesting updates on @nanopore. If you missed all the action. Here is the summary of recent nanopore activities. First, Nick Loman and Aaron […]

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 […]
