Why Nanopore Just out (March 1st 2021): New nanopore sequencing chemistry in developers’ hands; set to deliver Q20+ (99%+) “raw read” accuracy (modified enzyme, tweaked run conditions and further improved base calling model in the Bonito base caller) Nanopore reads are much longer than PacBio, they can reach 330 kbp in length, even exceeding 2Mb. Yield/cell is 245Gb. It can be used for both…… Read more »
