Winston just gave a Oxford Nanopore workshop presentation at AACR – slides are available here: timp_workshop_170329b.
Our Nature Methods paper was featured in a News & Views in Nature Methods here.
We’ve submitted our hummingbird PacBio IsoSeq work up to biorxiv: http://biorxiv.org/content/early/2017/03/15/117218
Congrats!! This work was a joint effort with our awesome collaborators in the Welch Lab at UToronto, Pacific Biosystems, and the Wong lab here at Hopkins.
Our paper on nanopore methylation sequencing is published in Nature Methods: http://www.nature.com/nmeth/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nmeth.4184.html Sharing link here: http://rdcu.be/poIs Congrats everyone!
Winston, Stephanie and Isac just went down to AGBT in Hollywood, FL (http://www.agbt.org/).
Stephanie has a talk – in the Tuesday evening (8:50-9:10PM) concurrent session (GENERAL BIOLOGY) – AGBT_2017_shao.
Isac is presenting a poster about his work on characterizing structural variants and single nucleotide variations with solution-phase capture coupled to nanopore sequencing – Isac_AGBT17_v3 copy.
And finally, Winston is presenting some of Rachael’s work hummingbird transcriptome sequencing with PacBio’s IsoSeq technology – AGBT2017_Timp_ruby_wta.
Also – please go to Jared Simpson’s talk on Thursday afternoon – he’s using some of the nanopore methylation characterization work we’ve done together on the recent NA12878 dataset.
We won a JHU Catalyst award! These awards (Catalyst Awards) provide support, both financial and mentoring, to early career researchers at Johns Hopkins.
Over the past 6 weeks we were lucky enough to have Abby Cohen, part of the Center for Talented Youth (CTY) cohort of high school students, come and work in our lab on mitochondrial DNA sequencing. Her work culminated in a poster presentation of her results, where she actually had some preliminary data showing full-length mitochondrial genome sequencing on the Oxford Nanopore minION sequencers. Great work Abby!
