nanopore sequencing

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 nanopore sequencing-based test is designed to both diagnose SARS-CoV-2 infection, as well as monitor mutations that may affect efforts to combat the virus.

In Nature this week: researchers in Canada sequence the genome of the black mustard plant Brassica nigra, and more.

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

Researchers used long-read nanopore sequencing in 100 tomato varieties to uncover more than 230,000 structural variants in the tomato genome.

The survey further characterized antibiotic resistance genes within these communities, suggesting that such an approach could aid in infection control efforts.

The company is also working on a diagnostic COVID-19 test, called LamPore, that will run on its MinIon and GridIon nanopore sequencing platforms

In Genome Biology this week: features affecting gut microbiome and parasite patterns, cellular interactions in lung tumor microenvironment, and more.

The first version of the platform, which the company submitted for Emergency Use Authorization to the US FDA last week, analyzes RNA extracted from a swab.

Combining Ubiquitome's handheld PCR device and Oxford Nanopore's sequencer may enable a single person to screen 500 samples and obtain 24 whole genome sequences per day.
