Currently I am using whole genome nanopore sequencing, Illumina short read and 10x linked read to study oncogenesis mechanisms of certain types of rare cancer. I am wondering about the advantages of nanopore sequencing in this field, e.g. fusion gene discovery, detection of large structural variants and copy number alterations (SV/CNA), as compared to Illumina and 10x? I am struggling with generating my doctoral thesis proposal, so any advice will be appreciated!
