Mitigating Pandemic Risk with Influenza A Virus Field Surveillance at a Swine-Human Interface
In this pre-print, Rambo-Martin and colleagues describe their Mobile Influenza Analysis(Mia) platform used for in-field outbreak surveillance of swine flu at an agricultural event featuring exhibition swine. Compared to the standard sequencing laboratory-based pipeline for Influenza detection which takes 39 hours, the authors achieved complete characterisation of 13 viral genomes 18 hours after unpacking the Mia platform, demonstrating the speed, portability and versatility of the MinION nanopore sequencing device.
New clinical research white paper
Our clinical research white paper outlines the advantages of nanopore sequencing for the detection of a variety of genomic and epigenomic variants. Read specific case studies that reveal how clinical researchers are now utilising nanopore sequencing to deliver new insights into human health and disease.
