DOI: 10.1038/nbt.4060

[…] coverage of the genome. additionally, all nanopore data used in this analysis were aligned using bwa, while giab pacbio data were aligned using blasr., to handle the large data volume, the original marginalign and signalalign algorithms were ported to cloud infrastructures using the toil batch system. toil allows for computational resources to be scaled horizontally and vertically as a given […]

DOI: 10.1038/nature16996

[…] designated as high-quality (due to having more complement events than template events) in the fail folder as determined by poretools were extracted into fasta (for nanopolish) and fastq format (for marginalign) with poretools version 0.5.1 ., we use a reference mapping approach to detect single nucleotide variants through alignment to a reference strain from early in the outbreak (em_079517) . […]

[…] platform (r7.3 pore, version 5 chemistry) the yields of high quality data from the instrument are becoming impressive, with up to several hundreds of megabases per run. using the nanopore-optimised marginalign software they report impressive accuracy scores of 92–93% when considering the filtered, best quality two-direction “passing” data., the marc analysis is as close we have to a hayne’s […]
