Rich Roberts discusses single-molecule sequencing technology with Biome reporter. part 5
Should nanopore sequencing become a commercially viable reality, do you think SMRT sequencing will become redundant or can these two technologies co-exist?
It depends what you mean by nanopore sequencing. I haven’t heard of anything that I believe in so far. Where is the data showing that it works? Despite the claim by Oxford Nanopore that they can read methylated bases, they never answered my emails offering to test those claims critically.
