Human genome sequencing on PromethION: characterization of structural variants and repetitive regions

At the VIB-UAntwerp Center for Molecular Neurology, we apply sequencing technologies to elucidate the genetic etiology of neurodegenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer Disease and Frontotemporal Dementia. Structural variation and repetitive regions are insufficiently characterized using currently dominant short-read sequencing technologies. Long-read sequencing on the Oxford Nanopore PromethION has the potential for a comprehensive identification […]

VirION: Towards Long-Read Viral Metagenomics

The study of viral ecology is taking major leaps forward with the use of long-read sequencing and viral metagenomics. On this webinar we discuss how MinION technology is bringing scientists closer to high-throughput single-virus genomics from environmental samples.
