Oxford Nanopore

Oxford Nanopore Technologies was founded in 2005 to develop an electronic, single molecule sensing system based on nanopore science. The company now has more than 250 employees from multiple disciplines including nanopore science, molecular biology and applications, informatics, engineering, electronics, manufacturing and commercialization. Oxford Nanopore's instruments — MinIon, PromethIon, and GridIon are adaptable for the analysis of DNA, RNA, proteins, small molecules and other types of molecule.

At the AGBT meeting this week, talks will feature real-time surveillance approaches, cDNA sequencing, and de novo genome assembly using MinIon data.

Researchers in Canada and the UK have used data from the Oxford Nanopore MinIon alone to assemble a bacterial genome into a single contig.

The researchers concluded that the technology "holds promise for clinical applications."

CSHL scientists described the work in a paper published online earlier this month and in a presentation this week at the annual Plant and Animal Genomes conference.

The team also assessed the performance of the MinIon and how it compares to other platforms.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Oxford Nanopore Technologies is working on a high-throughput nanopore sequencing platform called PromethIon, along with updates and new applications for the MinIon, according to a company official.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Early access users of Oxford Nanopore Technologies' MinIon sequencer and their collaborators have used nanopore data they generated to assemble a yeast genome de novo from error-corrected reads, to generate a hybrid de novo assembly of a bacterial genome,

This article, originally published Sept. 4, has been updated with comments from other MinIon early access users.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Oxford Nanopore Technologies has raised £35 million ($59 million) from existing and new investors, bringing its total funding since its founding in 2005 to £180 million ($302 million).
