The collaboration builds on an oligonucleotide supply agreement the partners signed in 2019 for Clear Labs' nanopore sequencing-based food safety testing.

Angstrom Bio is developing a rapid, scalable coronavirus test that uses nanopore sequencing to detect barcoded PCR products.

In Nature this week: sequence of the Gala apple and two of its wild relatives, analysis of SARS-CoV-2 genomes highlights role of US travelers and superspreaders in transmission in Israel, and more.

Investors in the round included International Holdings Company (IHC), based in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, and RPMI Railpen, a UK pension fund.

The Boston-based firm is pursuing nanopore technology as a readout for its unique information-encoding format, which could help customers store vast amounts of data.

The new pore, a complex between E. coli CsgG and part of CsgF, called certain homopolymers more accurately than an engineered version of CsgG.

The Delaware jury said Oxford Nanopore had infringed three patents, but also found that they were invalid, mostly because they were not enabled.

The method uses nanopore sequencing to analyze short cell-free DNA fragments from blood, providing results in as little as six hours.

The methods exploit a feature of Oxford Nanopore's technology that ejects molecules mid-read, enabling a new level of control over human DNA sequencing runs.

All three methods build on the use of methyltransferases to mark accessible regions of the genome, using nanopore sequencing to detect the modifications.
