DNA: An introduction to nanopore sequencing

Oxford Nanopore is developing 'strand sequencing', a method of DNA analysis that is compatible with the Company's GridION™ and MinION™ systems.

'Strand sequencing' is a technique that passes intact DNA polymers through a protein nanopore, sequencing in real time as the DNA translocates the pore. Oxford Nanopore intends to commercialise this technology independently.

The following movie is an introduction to nanopore DNA sequencing. For more information please visit the specific pages linked above.
