Sequencing ultra-long DNA molecules with the Oxford Nanopore MinION

BioRxiv : the Preprint Server for Biology
John M UrbanSusan A Gerbi


Oxford Nanopore Technologies’ nanopore sequencing device, the MinION, holds the promise of sequencing ultra-long DNA fragments >100kb. An obstacle to realizing this promise is delivering ultra-long DNA molecules to the nanopores. We present our progress in developing cost-effective ways to overcome this obstacle and our resulting MinION data, including multiple reads >100kb.
