Nick Loman blogs about his group’s participation in the monitoring of Ebola in Guinea, describing the work of Josh Quick in the field. At The Atlantic, Ed Yong describes the story.
In this study, we adapt a protocol for the growth of previously uncultured environmental bacterial isolates, to make it compatible with whole genome sequencing.
Nanopore sequencing introduces true real-time sequencing for the first time. Full exploitation of real-time sequencing requires a novel approach to data analysis for which we have developed the minoTour platform.
