Abstract

The development of new sequencing platforms, technologies, and bioinformatics tools in the past decade fostered key discoveries in human genomics. Among the most recent sequencing technologies, nanopore sequencing (NS) has caught the interest of researchers for its intriguing potential and flexibility. This up-to-date review highlights the recent application of NS in the hematology field, focusing on progress and challenges of the technological approaches employed for the identification of pathologic alterations. The molecular and analytic pipelines developed for the analysis of the whole-genome, target regions, and transcriptomics provide a proof of evidence of the unparalleled amount of information that could be retrieved by an innovative approach based on long-read sequencing.
