  • Is Oxford NANOPORE technology obsolete before commercial launch?

    An interesting paper integrating Nanopores with optical detection rather than current sensing.

    Well, even ONT took almost 10 years to go from a research paper to a beta device, I think it is too premature to say whether this new tech will amount to anything interesting for now.

      The fine prints of this paper mentioned that this tech is already licensed to ONT. So this is not going to be a competitor of ONT.

      If the current minion can be scaled to output 40Gb per box in the near future as ONT claimed, I don't see any big need for even higher throughput in the near future for this tech (or perhaps this tech is the secret behind the 40Gb output?). It is more important to improve the read accuracy to be on par with PacBio IMHO.

        It may not affect ONT, but people (specially graduate students) who put their resources developing software for current ONT platform will be disappointed once they switch to optical detection.

          Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
          by seqadmin


          The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...
