Hey , in your new episode you interview a woman scientist, but you introduce her merely as the wife of another scientist. Her husband isn’t even in the episode. What gives? 1/n

Alban Ramette in talking about their experience with and virus sequencing. Only one read cover 98.5% of the genome! And consensus sequence can win sequencing errors.

Worth noting that both of these can be done in real time using EPI2ME. and might have a view on how rapidly 😊

Ooh, we now have answers! ultrafast DNA sequencing this morning - from raw sample to detecting changes in soil biodiversity in 2h35.

So, we have soil (hopefully shortly soil DNA) from and for . We will be trying to decipher the genetic code of the microbes living in the soil - and show DNA sequencing at work

Looking forward to hearing Prof. Zhang and his colleague talk next week. They’ve got a great vision for how sequencing can be used to monitor wastewater treatment processes.

Bad news: Isolated frm a commercial poultry farm in - colistin-resistant E. coli. The chickens often carried multiple resistance genes, one copy mcr-1, and one copy of mcr-3. "This is the first report of these two genes on a single plasmid."

That's a super rapid kit run :) Hope it yields some interesting genomes for you to analyse!
