Including Q&A session

The application of Oxford Nanopore Technologies long-read sequencing in genomics research continues to expand. In this presentation I will highlight a number of tools we have developed to keep track of the myriad of analysis tools that are becoming available for long-read data (https://long-read-tools.org) along with software for visualising DNA methylation signal (NanoMethViz) and performing isoform analysis (FLAMES) in both bulk and single-cell transcriptomics data. Applications to studying imprinting in mouse development and exploring gene expression changes in different cell types in cancer will be presented, as well as future directions for this research.


All welcome!
