  • Applications Director, Oxford Nanopore Technologies
    Biography
      Dan leads the Applications Team at Oxford Nanopore Technologies. His responsibilities include developing library preparation methods to allow MinION users to work with a broad range of sample types and working with external collaborators to demonstrate new uses for the technology.

    Abstract:
    Oxford Nanopore’s MinION is a small sensing device which can sequence DNA and RNA directly, without the need to perform an enzymatic synthesis reaction. The device is portable and is powered by USB. Oxford Nanopore’s workflows are capable of performing real-time biological analyses.
     
    In this presentation we give a brief introduction to the technology, and describe the work performed by Oxford Nanopore’s Applications team on the use of the MinION for direct RNA sequencing and for analysis of microbial genomes and communities.
