  • Oxford Nanopore @ ASHG

    New thread started for ONT discussion as the old one was getting long. Also, GridION spotted in the wild?

    So it's not a hollow box...

    A call out to all ASHG attendees to please document ONT's announcements and hardware here for the community not attending.

    Is that sequencing cartridge actually connected to the rest of the electronics

    Can't really tell from the photo.

        Info from another person I know attending ASHG:
        No info on when for sale or price. Essentially error free to 10 kb - not sure I heard that right. No data to release. Just starting early access program.

          Thanks for the info. Getting the same vibe from following other Twitter accounts - no data yet.

          On the other hand, they are doing some cheeky marketing:

            Single-use MinION from Oxford Nanopore will cost ~$1000 and yield ~10Gbases in 6 hours with reads up to 40kb.

              Based on oxford nanopore representative explanations, here is a technical annotation of the MinIon picture #ashg2012

                  Good blog post toning down the hype over at mikethemadbiologist's page

                    Anyone can put a plexiglass top on a microATX case full of wires...Mike's post reflects my own opinions, I HOPE this isn't all just marketing. But it's really hard to not yell bull**** if they're not going to release data or show these things actually *doing* something.

                        Good article

                        Chief Executive Officer Gordon Sanghera spent some time telling me how the technology could tag proteins or microRNA with specially-made DNA strands and be used for detection, but he wouldn’t say a word about the company’s timeline for DNA sequencing. Instead, he urged patience. “What we said at AGBT, we will make good.”
                        I thought they said beta units would be out by September or October and they'd go on sale in December. It'd be a lot easier to be patient if they spared us the dog and pony show and just delivered.

                          Hmm. My XBox 360 looks a lot like that.....

                            Overall my conversation was pretty disappointing as far as new info (although the gentleman I talked to resisted a pretty good grilling from me and a 454/Roche product manager).

                            Points from my conversation that I can remember...
                            • GridION == "4-5x more sensors" than the MinION (no comparative runtime specs).
                            • GridION can sip from a 96 well plate full of samples (this was demo'd as a flat bottom black microtiter plate with no septa...hmmm).
                            • Acquisition speed == "bases per second".
                            • The above picture suggesting sample prep is just a "10bp overhang" is not correct and not confirmed
                            • The prototypes of the MinION ended up much larger than shown at AGBT due to heat issues (had to "add fans").
                            • They will not confirm which gating protein (exo or phi29) or which pore (mspA or a-HL), but that the gate protein is not covalently coupled to the pore. (which strongly suggests to me that it is phi29...the exo-release method would undoubtedly need exquisite positioning for efficient detection)
                            • According to the CEO, the DNA input concentration is "nanomolar". This makes sense to be given the binding kinetics of phi29 to it's binding site...but translates into high concentrations for a single molecule platform. When questioned about the possibility of doing very dilute samples where all the molecules matter, he suggested some method of on-chip enrichment/concentration (?????).
                            • They are cagey about data release because they want to (my paraphasing) "release data when it's ready"

                            Anyway, that's all I got. The ratio of ([booth girls] + [Apple-esque brushed aluminum] + [blinky lights]) to (data) was undefined...so that seems to speak for itself.

                              Since data = 0, don't you mean infinite?

                                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...
