Nanopore DNA Sequencing Workshop

Nanopore sequencing is a technology using flow cells which contain an array of tiny holes — nanopores — embedded in an electro-resistant membrane to determine the order of nucleotides in DNA. Each nanopore corresponds to its own electrode connected to a channel and sensor chip, which measures the electric current that flows through the nanopore. When a molecule passes through a nanopore, the current is disrupted to produce a characteristic ‘squiggle’. The squiggle is then decoded using base calling algorithms to determine the DNA or…
