The Oxford Nanopore Technologies Open Data (ont-open-data) provides reference sequencing data from Oxford Nanopore sequencing devices. Data access is provided through the Registry of Open Data on AWS.
The Oxford Nanopore Technologies Open Data project aims to provide exemplar datasets from state of the art long-read sequencing. Datasets are provided without restriction on availability or use to aid researchers, primarily in the field of genomics and transcriptomics. All data is hosted by our collaborator Amazon Web Services on the Registry of Open Data on AWS. Our previous data releases have been used to aid the development of new algorithms for small variant and structural variant calling, and in the creation of new single-cell transcriptomics analyses. Data has also been used together with datasets from other sources for the complete telomere to telomere assembly of the Genome In A Bottle sample HG002.
The data are freely available to all and can be used for:
The data deposited showcases DNA sequences from a representative subset of sequencing chemistries. The datasets correspond to publicly-available reference samples including the widely available Genome In A Bottle human reference samples. Raw data are provided with metadata and scripts to describe sample and data provenance.
The list below represents the most recent dataset or analysis of its class. As new datasets, basecallers, and analysis methods are developed this list will change.
We strive to keep all analyses current, though some may fall behind the more current sequencing runs and basecalling results.
Historical datasets can also by found in the repository. Our previous data release blog posts are archived under the data-releases category.
