Oxford Nanopore Expands MinIon Early-Access Program as Users Present, Publish Early Results | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Oxford Nanopore Technologies said last week that it is admitting additional users to its early-access program for the MinIon sequencer, while increasing numbers of program participants are presenting and publishing their results.

At the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology meeting in Marco Island, Fla., this week, for example, researchers from The Genome Analysis Centre in the UK and from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory are scheduled to talk about real-time surveillance approaches, cDNA sequencing, and de novo genome assembly using MinIon data.
