The TGC offers service on the MinION instrument from Oxford Nanopore Technologies, employing the fourth-generation DNA sequencing technology. Ultra-long read lengths are possible (hundreds of kb) as you can choose your fragment length.
The MinION offers advantages in all areas of research, such as microbiology, environmental research, microbiome, human genetics, cancer research, plant and animal research and more. Specifically, the ultra-long read lengths allow for special applications not possible in other sequencing technologies. For example, in human genetics, it enables full characterization of structural variation, repetitive regions, haplotype phasing, RNA splice variants, isoforms and fusion transcripts. In microbiology complete bacterial, fungal and viral genomes can be sequenced with the MinION sequencer; identifying and characterizing microbes from environmental or single organism samples.
