We use Oxford Nanopore Long-read sequencing to study RNA regulation.
We do not only apply multiple Nanopore sequencing approaches (for example Native RNA sequencing and custom cDNA approaches), but also develop novel bioinformatics tools to study the impact of specific features of RNA on translational regulation. We have recently published a tool to measure poly(A) tail lengths of the whole transcriptome and aim to apply this approach in early zebrafish development.
