BioSB HotTopics: ONT Nanopore sequencing

On April 20, 2017 we are organising the first edition of the new series of HotTopics meetings that were previously organised by the Netherlands Bioinformatics Centre.

BioSB HotTopics: ONT Nanopore sequencing

April 20, 2017, TU Delft

Nanopore sequencing has been revolutionizing the sequencing arena for the last few years. The last decade, sequencing went from highly-specialized to a commodity product that can be readily purchased from a specialty provider. ONT has taken this again a step further and is now enabling anyone to get into ‘do-it-yourself’ sequencing. Sequencing now requires no capital investment, very little in lab setup and anybody with a steady hand can start to generate data. While the technology has tremendous potential, there are still a few teething problems and sharing expert knowledge is critical to realize its full potential. Luckily, there is a comparatively large expert-user community within the Netherlands.

The goal of this meeting is to bring us together and strengthen information sharing and collaboration within the Netherlands and beyond.
