Long read club is part of a recently funded Wellcome Trust Technology Development Award. Our overall goal is to help the genomics community achieve finished quality, complete reference quality genomes routinely and at scale.

The nanopore human WGS consortium are curating a regularly-updated NA12878 human cell line data release from nanopore data. More information on their Github:
At AGBT 2019, the T2T consortium released an extensive dataset for the haploid human CHM13 cell line including 50X ultra-long nanopore coverage, 10X Genomics data, BioNano data. This is complimented by existing PacBio data. The goal of the consortium is to complete a telomere-to-telomere contiguous finished assembly of a haploid human genome.

As part of protocol development, we have generated extensive ultra-long read data for E. coli K-12 MG1655 which is released here in case it is useful for development (e.g. of assembly software).
