The team behind the Biomolecule Sequencer project today issued a pre print describing their project to sequence DNA on the International Space Station. The authors note that “Simulated runs of in-flight nanopore data using an automated bioinformatic pipeline demonstrated the feasibility of real-time sequencing analysis and metagenomic identification of microbes in space. Additionally, cloud and… Read More Biomolecule Sequencer issues pre-print publication
