At LongSeq, we use next-generation nanopore sequencing, capable of deciphering complex genetic cases that conventional sequencing is not able to solve.

This sequencing is characterized by obtaining long reads of genomic DNA or RNA in real-time without manipulation. Our team has its own bioinformatics pipelines for data analysis.

Why use it?

Main advantages of nanopore SEQ.

Nanopore long read sequencing allows the analysis of unmanipulated DNA and RNA strands in real-time. Additionally, this technology offers the possibility of enriching or depleting genomic regions in real-time through software, thus increasing the sequencing yield in regions of interest without the need for previous amplification steps.

These features enable methylation studies, detection and characterization of structural variants, resolution of large haplotypes, de novo assembly, transcription profile analysis and detection of alternative transcripts.

Areas of application:




Applications and results

  • Characterization of structural variants at nucleotide level, including complex regions of difficult characterization such as tandem repeats.
  • Resolution of large haplotypes using a straightforward and fast methodology.
  • Determination of biallelic mutations and resolution of large haplotypes using a a quick and cost-effective methodology.
  • Resolution of clinical cases without previous diagnosis due to the limitations of conventional techniques (e.g., large structural alterations, retrotransposon insertions, etc.).
  • RNAseq: analysis of transcription profiles, study of alternative transcripts and epitranscriptomics.
  • Whole plasmid sequencing.
  • Metataxonomics studies. Complete analysis of the 16S rRNA gene.
  • De novo assembly of small genomes.
