Oxford Nanopore Technologies Ltd (Oxford, UK) have recently commercialized MinION, a small and low-cost single-molecule nanopore sequencer, that offers the possibility of sequencing long DNA fragments. The Oxford Nanopore technology is truly disruptive and can sequence small genomes in a matter of seconds. It has the potential to revolutionize genomic applications due to its portability, low-cost, and ease of use compared with existing long reads sequencing technologies. The MinION sequencer…

De novo yeast genome assemblies from MinION, PacBio and MiSeq platforms
TLDR
This paper re-sequenced a well characterized genome, the Saccharomyces cerevisiae S288C strain using three different platforms: MinION, PacBio and MiSeq.
Nanopore sequencing enables near-complete de novo assembly of Saccharomyces cerevisiae reference strain CEN.PK113-7D
TLDR
The power of long-read sequencing is demonstrated by providing a high-quality reference assembly and annotation of CEN.PK113-7D and places a caveat on assumed genome stability of microorganisms.
High contiguity Arabidopsis thaliana genome assembly with a single nanopore flow cell
TLDR
It is demonstrated that even when the purpose is to understand complex structural variation at a single region of the genome, complete genome assembly is becoming the simplest way to achieve this goal.
High-Quality de Novo Genome Assembly of the Dekkera bruxellensis Yeast Using Nanopore MinION Sequencing
TLDR
This work sequenced and assembled a reference genome of the nonconventional Dekkera bruxellensis yeast and obtained a first glimpse into the genomic variability within this species by comparing the sequences of several isolates.
Oxford Nanopore MinION sequencing enables rapid whole-genome assembly of Rickettsia typhi in a resource-limited setting
TLDR
The genome of an isolate of Rickettsia typhi, an important and neglected cause of fever across much of the tropics and subtropics, is sequenced, which represents the first complete genome sequence of a human R. typhi isolate collected in the last 50 years.

De Novo Assembly of a New Solanum pennellii Accession Using Nanopore Sequencing[CC-BY]
TLDR
The generation of a comprehensive nanopore sequencing data set with a median read length of 11,979 bp for a self-compatible accession of the wild tomato species Solanum pennellii indicates that such long read sequencing data can be used to affordably sequence and assemble gigabase-sized plant genomes.
High-quality de novo genome assembly of the Dekkera bruxellensis UMY321 yeast isolate using Nanopore MinION sequencing
TLDR
The most complete and contiguous de novo assembly of D. bruxellensis to date is generated and obtained a first glimpse into the genomic variability within this species by comparing the sequences of several isolates, representing a reference to study genome dynamic in this yeast species.
High-Quality de Novo Genome Assembly of the Dekkera bruxellensis Yeast Isolate Using Nanopore MinION Sequencing.

Oxford Nanopore sequencing, hybrid error correction, and de novo assembly of a eukaryotic genome.
TLDR
The assembly with the long nanopore reads presents a much more complete representation of the features of the genome and correctly assembles gene cassettes, rRNAs, transposable elements, and other genomic features that were almost entirely absent in the Illumina-only assembly.
Hybrid error correction and de novo assembly of single-molecule sequencing reads
TLDR
This work introduces a correction algorithm and assembly strategy that uses short, high-fidelity sequences to correct the error in single-molecule sequences, leading to substantially better assemblies than current sequencing strategies.
Reconstructing complex regions of genomes using long-read sequencing technology.
TLDR
It is shown that it is possible to resolve regions that are complex in a genome-wide context but simple in isolation for a fraction of the time and cost of traditional methods using long-read single molecule, real-time (SMRT) sequencing and assembly technology from Pacific Biosciences.
Pilon: An Integrated Tool for Comprehensive Microbial Variant Detection and Genome Assembly Improvement
TLDR
Pilon is a fully automated, all-in-one tool for correcting draft assemblies and calling sequence variants of multiple sizes, including very large insertions and deletions, which is being used to improve the assemblies of thousands of new genomes and to identify variants from thousands of clinically relevant bacterial strains.
Assembling Large Genomes with Single-Molecule Sequencing and Locality Sensitive Hashing
TLDR
The MinHash Alignment Process (MHAP) is introduced for efficient overlapping of noisy, long reads using probabilistic, locality-sensitive hashing and demonstrated that single-molecule sequencing alone can produce near-complete eukaryotic genomes at modest cost.
Nonhybrid, finished microbial genome assemblies from long-read SMRT sequencing data
We present a hierarchical genome-assembly process (HGAP) for high-quality de novo microbial genome assemblies using only a single, long-insert shotgun DNA library in conjunction with Single Molecule,
Minimap and miniasm: fast mapping and de novo assembly for noisy long sequences
TLDR
A new mapper, minimap and a de novo assembler, miniasm, is presented for efficiently mapping and assembling SMRT and ONT reads without an error correction stage.

TLDR
SPAdes generates single-cell assemblies, providing information about genomes of uncultivatable bacteria that vastly exceeds what may be obtained via traditional metagenomics studies.
Decoding long nanopore sequencing reads of natural DNA
TLDR
This work builds on recent progress with respect to nanopore resolution and DNA control to interpret the procession of ion current levels observed during the translocation of DNA through the pore MspA, and shows nanopore sequencing reads of phi X 174 up to 4,500 bases in length, which can be unambiguously aligned to the phiX 174 reference genome.
Direct determination of diploid genome sequences
TLDR
This paper demonstrates a straightforward and low-cost method for creating true diploid de novo assemblies, made from a single library from ~1 ng of high molecular weight DNA, using the 10x Genomics microfluidic platform to partition the genome.
