MicroBinfie Podcast, 23 CoronaHiT large scale multiplexing of SARS-CoV-2 genomes on Nanopore

microbinfie, podcast1 min read

We chat with the authors of CoronaHiT which lets you sequence up to 94 SARS-CoV-2 samples on a single MinION flowcell. This reduces the cost of sequencing 3-fold, with a simpler, faster protocol. Justin O'Grady and David Baker join Andrew Page and Nabil-Fareed Alikhan to chat about how it all works, how it came into being and why its awesome. Preprint: https://doi.org/10.1101/2020.06.24.162156
