Among the many interesting talks , the most anticipated talks is from Oxford Nanopore CTO Clive Brown’s talk announcing the future things to expect from Oxford Nanopore. The talk did not seem to […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

Oxford Nanopore Data and MinION: Valentines Day’s Gift to Genome Enthusiasts

It looks like genome enthusiasts have got a nice Valentine’s Days gift from Oxford Nanopore today. Oxford Nanopore have started announcing the lucky participants who will be receiving their Oxford MinION as part of the Oxford Nanopore’s early access program. It is not clear, how many labs were given the early access to MinION. I’ve […]
