Sequencing of human genomes with nanopore technology

challenging repetitive regions of the genome7 and in phasing and the detection of complex structural variation8, but relatively high cost and low throughput have so far limited the technology?s adoption. All ... sequencing using a single technology. To evaluate the potential of nanopore sequencing for clinical human genomics we have sequenced two human genomes across multiple runs of the portable MinION device. We

The laser was focused to a spot size of approximately 50 ?m in diameter (D4?) for all

Extreme–ultraviolet high–harmonic generation in liquids

High–harmonic generation (HHG) in gases has been the main enabling technology of attosecond science since its discovery. Recently, HHG from solids has been demonstrated, opening a lively area of ... extreme ultraviolet HHG from liquid water and several alcohols extending beyond 20 eV. This advance was enabled by the implementation of the recent liquid flat–microjet technology, which we show to

Spatial specificity of auxin responses coordinates wood formation

niche mediating wood formation, fundamentally depends on auxin signalling but its exact role and spatial organization is obscure. Here we show that, while auxin signalling levels increase in ... . This production is the basis of wood formation and is thus essential for the accumulation of a large proportion of terrestrial biomass. The plant hormone auxin plays pivotal roles in local patterning
