Maize genome complexity traversed with Oxford Nanopore technology

  Maize is one of the most economically important crops globally and much effort has been spent generating the high quality B73 reference genome. However, the 10 chromosome, 2.3 gigabase (Gb) B73 reference genome was a substantial challenge due to the fact it is comprised of 85% transposable elements, 75% of which are long terminal […]

Human genome sequencing on PromethION: characterization of structural variants and repetitive regions

  At the VIB-UAntwerp Center for Molecular Neurology, we apply sequencing technologies to elucidate the genetic etiology of neurodegenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer Disease and Frontotemporal Dementia. Structural variation and repetitive regions are insufficiently characterized using currently dominant short-read sequencing technologies. Long-read sequencing on the Oxford Nanopore PromethION has the potential for a comprehensive […]
