The Application of Nanopore Sequencing Technology to the Study of Dinoflagellates: A Proof of Concept Study for Rapid Sequence-Based Discrimination of Potentially Harmful Algae
Hatfield et al., 2020
The aim of this study was to explore the suitability of the MinION platform for the detection and discrimination of dinoflagellates in environmental samples. This is the first study to prove the suitability of nanopore sequencing technology for taxonomic identification of harmful algal bloom organisms using ~ 3KB amplicon that encompassed multiple regions of the rDNA cassette.
