Bioinformatics tools developed for Oxford Nanopore data analysis !

MinION is the only portable real-time device for DNA and RNA sequencing. Each consumable flow cell can now generate 10–20 Gb of DNA sequence data. Ultra-long read lengths are possible (hundreds of kb) as you can choose your fragment length. One of the technical advantages of ONT data is the read length, which offers great prospects for genome assembly. Generally, assemblers are based on several different types of algorithms, such as greedy, overlap-layout-consensus (OLC), de Bruijn graph (DBG), and string graph.
