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 […]

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 […]
