Webinar Summary

The gold standard of molecular testing is real-time PCR, which has limited target capability.

Nanopore sequencing has paved the way for differentiation between closely-related microorganisms, identification of animal species, and detection of causative agents of an outbreak, as the technology enables onsite genome sequencing at point-of-need with high speed.

This talk will focus on the use of nanopore sequencing in field settings without the need for bioinformatics experience, including tricks to achieve a successful sequencing run at low cost.

 

Attending this webinar, you will learn:

  • How to do nanopore sequencing with limited resources
  • Does extraction matter?
  • Which is best - MinION or Flongle?
  • Is there a need for a bioinformatician to analyze the sequencing data?
  • What are the applications of nanopore sequencing in molecular identification?
