  • Patent number: 10612083
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to the methods and compositions to efficiently analyze polymer characteristics using nanopore-based assays. Specifically disclosed is a method for generating reference signals for polymer analysis in a nanopore system, wherein the nanopore system has a multi-subunit output signal resolution. The method comprises translocating a reference sequence through a nanopore to generate a plurality of reference output signals, wherein each possible multi-subunit sequence that can determine an output signal appears only once in the reference sequence. The output signals are compiled into a reference map for nanopore analysis of an analyte polymer. Also provided are methods and compositions for calibrating the nanopore system for optimized polymer analysis.

  • Publication number: 20170081713
    Abstract: The present invention relates to, among other things, polymer strands, probes, compositions, methods, and kits for enabling accurate and robust enzyme- and amplification-free detection of DNA and RNA with single base resolution (e.g., detection of a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), an insertion, and a deletion). The compositions, methods, and kits may further provide simultaneous detection of DNA and/or RNA and protein targets.
