Flash Report: Oxford Nanopore announces further collaborations

2012 is over and Oxford Nanopore Technologies has failed to maintain its commitment to commercialize the revolutionary GridION and MinION DNA strand sequencing products directly to customers within the past year.
However a new press release dated 8 Jan 2013 reveals that something is moving forward. The company announced that it has completed a series of agreements with leading academic research institutions (including University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Brown University, Stanford University, Boston University, University of Cambridge and University of Southampton) to further develop and exploit nanopore sensing technology for the analysis of DNA, RNA, proteins and other single molecules.
Will 2013 be the year of nanopore-based NGS sequencing?
