Oxford Nanopore Technologies Short Fragment Mode

Oxford Nanopore Technologies has launched Short Fragment Mode (SFM), a free software feature for real-time sequencing of short fragments of DNA. The company said that while SFM can ​​"unlock" the ability to sequence DNA fragments down to 20 bases, it does not require any new sequencing reagents or devices since it is a result of software rather than chemistry updates. Additionally, the company said SFM will be available from the single-use Flongle to the high-throughput PromethIon.
