nanopore

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.

The firm, Universal Sequencing Technology, recently launched a library prep kit to get long-range information from short reads and is working on a long-read sequencing platform.

The UK-based sequencing technology firm raised £29.3 million in capital and sold £80.2 million in secondary shares.

The two companies had worked closely together since Parabricks spun out of the University of Michigan in 2015 and entered the Nvidia accelerator program.

Researchers from France's DreamPore and their collaborators used a nanopore to distinguish between 15 of the 20 proteinogenic amino acids.
