Generating complete, reference quality microbial genomes with 'nanopore only' metagenomic sequencing

Wednesday, 3rd May, 2023, 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM CEST.

Recent advances in nanopore sequencing mean it is now possible for any lab to generate reference quality microbial genome assemblies without the requirement for short read or reference polishing – saving considerable time and cost. In this webinar, Dr. Lei Liu from Aalborg University, Denmark, will share his experiences of utilizing 'nanopore only', long read sequencing to generate complete, high quality genome reconstructions from complex metagenomes.
Join this webinar to:
• Discover the importance of long reads for obtaining complete closed microbial genome assemblies
• Learn how the latest nanopore sequencing chemistry can deliver metagenomic consensus accuracies of Q50 (99,999%)
• Hear how researchers at Aalborg University are applying 'nanopore only' approaches to generate affordable, reference quality genome assemblies from complex environmental samples
• Find out how 'open source' analysis tools, such as NanoPhase, streamline the generation of metagenome assembled genomes
