A P. aeruginosa serotype-defining single read from our first Oxford Nanopore run

Here is, I think, the first publically-available Oxford Nanopore read to be published. This came off our MinION instrument this morning (Wednesday 11th June). The DNA was derived from Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain 910 which originally came from hospital water. DNA was fragmented with Covaris G-Tube as per the Oxford Nanopore standard genomic library preparation protocol. The read maps to part of the P. aeruginosa O6-antigen determining region.
