Enhancing everyday microbiology workflows with easy-to-use, benchtop nanopore sequencing


Thursday, 20th October, 2022  
16:00 to 17:00 CEST (Berlin, Paris, Madrid)


If you think sequencing data would benefit your research, but equally feel that it is not an option open to you — perhaps because of cost, accessibility, or expertise — then join this webinar to hear from two early-career scientists who have taken complete control of when, where, and how they sequence using the MinION from Oxford Nanopore Technologies.

In this webinar:

  • See real-life examples of workflows before the use of nanopore sequencing
  • Learn about the journey to sequencing with the MinION
  • Discover the novel insights gained from utilising nanopore sequencing
  • Hear the latest research into bacterial infections and the evolution of antibiotic resistance

Presented by:

  Aaron received his PhD from UC Berkeley in the department of Integrative Biology, employing next generation sequencing, genome editing, and bioimaging techniques in non-model organisms. He started using nanopore sequencing in 2014, performing in situ biodiversity studies in the Amazon rainforest. Now, as Segment Marketing Manager at Oxford Nanopore, Aaron helps drive forward the development of new areas in the research life sciences market.
  Natalie is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Roslin Institute, UK. Following her PhD researching the repetitive genome of Bordetella pertussis, she is currently investigating the potential of long nanopore sequencing reads generated using the MinION for rapid detection of bacterial infections in dogs. She has also written a chapter on the genetics of regeneration for a book about Doctor Who!
  Richard has just completed his PhD at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, UK, in which he studied the impact of horizontal gene transfer on the evolution of antibiotic resistance in Enterobacteriaceae. Employing conjugation studies, molecular biology techniques, sequencing, bioinformatics, and computer programming in R and Linux, he has collaborated with ongoing projects in Malawi, which employ a One Health perspective to tackle AMR.
