Oxford Nanopore Technologies Remora

Oxford Nanopore Technologies announced it has integrated Remora, a tool to enable whole-genome methylation detection from PCR-free nanopore sequencing, with the company's sequencing software MinKnow. Remora can run in parallel to standard basecalling, and the process takes 10 minutes at no additional cost, the company said. Remora can deliver high methylation detection accuracy from a single read and provides biological insight into eukaryotic samples at only 20X coverage, according to the company.
