Metagenomic analysis involves studying all the DNA present in an isolated sample, simultaneously identifying multiple microorganisms for various applications, such as pathogen detection or resistance. DNA sequencing technologies have enabled obtaining the complete DNA of non-cultivated microorganisms. However, identifying organisms from mixed populations using traditional short-read sequencing technologies remains challenging. The latest nanopore sequencing technology offers real-time, long-read sequencing that can overcome the limitations of these methods.

In this project, we will collaborate with various industry partners to develop new metagenomic applications using nanopore sequencing. Additionally, we will explore automation of sample preparation and use artificial intelligence (AI) for data analysis.
