Oxford Nanopore confirmed at AGBT

ONT will be speaking at AGBT. 11:40 am-12:00 pm

Clive Brown, their Chief Technology Officer will be talking about “Single Molecule ‘Strand’ Sequencing Using Protein Nanopores and Scalable Electronic Devices” just before lunch on Friday at 11:40. But only for 20 minutes.

Back in April last year Clive posted on SEQanswers "What if your reads were over 100kb, very accurate and you had a mountain of them?"

See you there.

PS: Illumina licensed ONTs exonuclease sequencing methods only, and I am not sure what deal they have on the strand sequencing methods. Either exonuclease is going to come out in a blast of publicity later in the year or Illumina will need to negotiate again over strand sequencing.


  1. James - Clive also ominously posted something along the lines of "The days of short reads are numbered" on LinkedIn recently. It remains to be seen I guess! Fingers crossed for some news at AGBT. Will see you there no doubt.

  2. See this article on InSequence:

  3. How to do you scale protein pores to 1-10M or higher parallelism? My bet is that the results they present will look good but they will waffle on the throughput issue.

  4. That is very interesting blog and content. Keep it up.
