Sequencing technology has advanced rapidly in the last 15 years. The advent of nanopore sequencing introduces truly portable, hand-held sequencing devices which have now been used in every imaginable location from the deep sea to the international space station.
We are exploiting the latest generation Nanopore sequencing approaches to sequence large genomes. Nanopore sequencing is low cost, easy to use and can generate read lengths limited only by the ability to generate suitable input material.
This is the decade of the ‘brain’ and this is also the decade of advancements in ‘genomic technologies’. This project aims to use cutting edge sequencing technologies to understand susceptibility to human disorders of the brain.
