Adaptive Sampling: Target Regions of DNA in Real Time
Oxford Nanopore sequencing devices enable direct, real-time analysis of short to ultra-long fragments of DNA/RNA in fully scalable formats.
It’s possible to target regions of DNA in real time using adaptive sampling on nanopore devices. The nanopore has the ability to read the strand sequence in real time, if it is not the strand of interest, the strand is ejected, but if it is, the nanopore recognises this and continues to read the strand. Researchers then get more of the sequence they are interested in within a shorter period of time, allowing faster and easier analysis.
