Researchers from the University of Hawaii, Oxford Nanopore Technologies, and elsewhere outline a sequencing strategy for pulling viral genomes out of metagenomic sequence collections. The amplification- and assembly-free method is designed to directly sequence environmental viruses with single-molecule, nanopore sequencing reads that extend across complete viral genomes, the team explains, taking advantage of known virus and phage features.
