Core webinar: PromethION 24 – what you’re missing matters

Long nanopore sequencing reads offer the potential to improve both the speed and yield of genetic characterisation and information.

During this webinar, Steven Jones from the Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre discussed the benefits of long nanopore sequencing reads for a range of research applications. Then, Joe Whittaker introduced Oxford Nanopore’s technology and demonstrated the range of PromethIONTM devices available, and how they can be utilised to achieve flexible, large-scale, direct DNA and RNA sequencing.

Core webinar: Comprehensive analysis of human variants and cancer genomes with multi-omic nanopore sequencing

Widespread genomic aberrations are a hallmark of many cancer types. Despite their contribution to oncogenesis, the identification of complex driver events such as structural variants (SVs) in cancer remains challenging.

During this webinar Mikhail Kolmogorov, (Tenure-Track Stadtman Investigator, National Cancer Institute) presented how he developed an efficient and scalable workflow that generates state-of-the art small variant calls, structural variant calls and de novo assemblies from a single PromethION Flow Cell. Then, Etienne Raimondeau (Technical Product Manager, Oxford Nanopore Technologies) shared a comprehensive overview of simple and efficient human whole-genome sequencing.
