Oxford Nanopore Technologies was founded in 2005 as a spin-out from Professor Hagan Bayley's laboratory at the University of Oxford. The Company is developing a revolutionary DNA sequencing system that gives direct electrical identification of DNA bases in sequence, using a protein nanopore coupled with a processive enzyme. Oxford Nanopore has additional collaborations with other leading academics in the nanopore field, and expects to evolve future generations of nanopore sequencing systems.
Tasks in project will include :
Tight collaboration with Hagan Bayley one of the founders of Oxford Nanopore Technologies.
