Applications of Nanopore sequencing

Research Overview

Oxford Nanopore sequencing technology is a cutting-edge approach with a number of unqiue features, including the real time sequencing of DNA or native RNA without the read length limits of traditional sequencing technologies. In addition, Nanopore sequencing has extreme portability (take the sequencer to the sample) and can also detect nucleic acid base-modifications. This combination of unique attributes allows the use of Nanopore sequencing in many novel (as well as existing) applications. We are developing new methods and applications for Nanopore sequencing, as well as using Nanopore sequencing to address previously intractable biological questions.
