The Introduction of Nanopore Sequencing
Oxford Nanopore Technologies has developed the nanopore-based DNA and RNA sequencing technology. The Nanopore sequencer is proven compatible with a variety of input material such as genomic DNA, amplified DNA, cDNA, and RNA. Nanopore technology for sequencing biomolecules has wide applications in the life sciences, including identification of pathogens, food safety monitoring, genomic analysis, metagenomic environmental monitoring, and characterization of bacterial antibiotic resistance.
Compared to the traditional workflow, the Nanopore sequencer has some highlighted advantages.
