The potential of using Oxford Nanopore Technologies MinION sequencer is evaluated for Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS). A reference sample (NA112878) was sequenced alongside an individual with clinical indications. The authors applied novel bioinformatic approaches to the analysis and identify innovations that could significantly improve the platform’s potential for clinical WGS.

BluePippin was used to enrich DNA fragments >6kb using the High-Pass protocol prior to library construction.
