ONT Community Meeting 2021

Oxford Nanopore held their annual Community Meeting online at the beginning of this month.  As is typical for this stage of the ONT news cycle, most topics were confirmations and updates of earlier projections, with little brand new material.  There was one surprise, a new concept for running nanopore with little to no auxiliary lab equipment.  Oh, and perhaps in the surprise category is Oxford appears to be finally moving away from the R9 pore which has been their mainstay for many years now.
