Oxford Nanopore Technologies Ltd.. (10/18/17). "Press Release: Oxford Nanopore at ASHG 2017".

Region Region Orlando, FL
  Country United States (USA)
Organisations Organisation Oxford Nanopore Technologies Ltd.
  Today Oxford Nanopore Technologies plc (LSE: ONT)
  Group Oxford Nanopore (Group)
  Organisation 2 American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG)
Products Product ASHG 2017 Annual Meeting Orlando
  Product 2 GridION sequencing system

Since ASHG last year, the MinION has been used to sequence human genomes (and also large plant genomes), the higher-throughput GridION and PromethION have emerged, new direct RNA and cDNA sequencing kits have been launched and we have started a developer programme for targeted enrichment. Throughput and accuracy levels have escalated, and with all of these developments, new publications around human genetics have been emerging. There will be lots to talk about if you would like to visit us on booth #649. If you aren't at ASHG, visit our human genetics web page or read down.

At the booth: #649

• Meet the family of nanopore devices – including the GridION™ X5 – run up to 5 Flow Cells, with embedded compute.

• Meet the nanopore team, who can answer your questions about the technology and your applications

• Browse the Resource centre to find out how others are using nanopore sequencing for human genetics research, including improving the human genome assembly, assembling centromeres, HLA typing and same-day genomic and epigenomic analysis of brain tumors. 

• Talk to us about joining our exclusive evening event 

• Grab a copy of our recent white papers offering new insights into large genomes and structural variation.

• Pick up some of our posters - New today: an RNA poster showing very low %GC bias and lower requirements for total data and number of reads 

• Enter our competition to win a MinION starter pack

Oxford Nanopore evening event – Evening reception

Join us on Thursday, 19th October, for an evening of drinks, food, and research updates on human genetics and RNA sequencing from nanopore users. You can talk to nanopore staff about getting the most out of your flow cells, including hands-on practice. Researchers Chia-Lin Wei, Wilfried Haerty and Svetlana Madjunkova will also be presenting their latest research. Register your interest.
