What is the read length for long-read genome sequencing?

You are here:

We use Oxford Nanopore MinION for long-read sequencing runs.  The read lengths for MinION range from 1Kbp to 4Mbp, however, typical sequencing runs yield read lengths with a modal distribution peak between 15Kbp to 100Kbp.  Ultra-long reads beyond 100Kbp require special library prep methods and are typically beyond the scope of most projects.
