Last time, I covered Oxford Nanopore LamPORE COVID-19 detection scheme. London Calling was over a week ago, so the chance to scribble before its all old news is rapidly shrinking. As noted yesterday, Clive Brown didn't speak here but instead will broadcast at some future date; it was left to his top technical lieutenants to cover the developments in the platform which have happened since the Community Meeting in New York back in early December. I've tried to hit the highlights here, but don't claim to be comprehensive.

London Calling was last week, held online due to the pandemic. My plans to attend in person were one of a myriad of travel arrangements upended by the calamity, though that is utterly trivial in comparison to the tragedy of so many lost lives, damaged survivors and economic ruin. Attending remotely also made it harder to ignore my work duties, which are at a crescendo (well, not really: it's been this intense for months). But all the talks are available online, so I have stolen some time to review the Oxford Nanopore technology announcements. There wasn't a Clive Brown talk; apparently he will deliver a broadcast later this summer to tease us with more crazy ideas emerging from the ONT Skunk Works.
