Analysis of Nanopore Sequencing Data

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Oxford Nanopore MinION sequences DNA and RNA by measuring the disruption of electric current caused by the molecule passing through a protein nanopore embedded in a membrane. These devices are portable, can sequence extremely long reads, and are sensitive to base modifications like 5-methylcytosine. In my talk I will discuss methods for analysing the current signals measured by these devices including the key developments in basecalling and my group's work on calculating a consensus sequence for an assembled genome and detecting base modifications.
