Oxford Nanopore Technologies Ltd is pleased to announce a new agreement to strengthen the Company's collaboration with the University of Oxford. The Company will fund research in the laboratories of Professor Hagan Bayley and will partner exclusively with the University to develop revolutionary products for molecular analysis from these new discoveries.
“We are delighted to have signed this new agreement to broaden and extend the collaboration between the University of Oxford and Oxford Nanopore Technologies”
Research projects within the Bayley group include methods for the direct sequencing of single stranded DNA (ssDNA). This and other nanopore sequencing techniques may offer substantial performance benefits over currently-available sequencing technologies through improved cost and speed.
"We are delighted to have signed this new agreement to broaden and extend the collaboration between the University of Oxford and Oxford Nanopore Technologies," said Dr Gordon Sanghera, CEO. "Our core technology is compatible with a broad range of nanopore sensors and so this collaboration enhances the potential of our system, from evolving our first generation of DNA sequencing technology to exploring new applications such as protein sensing."
