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 […]

Oxford MinION at ASHG 2014: Updates on MinION and PromethION




It is almost two years ago at ASHG 2012, Oxford Nanopore showed off Oxford MinION at ASHG 2012. Almost a year ago at ASHG 2013, Oxford Nanopore  let a few selected researchers try out sequencing by MinION.  Oxford Nanopore is back to ASHG this year at San Diego and announced a few updates and formally […]

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 Oxford Nanopore MinION at #BaltiAndBioinformatics




Nick Loman organized awesome Google Hangout and had awesome list of speakers talk about Oxford Nanopore MinION sequencing. Here is Nick Loman’ talk storified. Thanks to live tweeters. [View the story “Nick Loman’s Talk Oxford Nanopore MinION at #BaltiAndBioinformatics” on Storify]

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 […]
