The full-length transcriptome of C. elegans using direct RNA sequencing
Over half of the isoforms in the annotated Caenorhabditis elegans transcriptome lack full-length support. Nanopore direct RNA sequencing obtains full-length isoforms, enabling easier transcript assembly compared to short-read RNA sequencing. In this pre-print, Roach et al. characterised the transcriptome of C. elegans using direct RNA sequencing, significantly expanding the number of genes and isoforms in the C. elegans reference transcriptome with full-length support.
Cancer research infographic
Methods typically used to investigate cancer genomes can be limited. Detect a greater range of genomic variation, in a single run, with long-read nanopore sequencing. See our cancer research infographic to find out more.
