We develop a general computational approach for improving the accuracy of basecalling with Oxford Nanopore's 1D2 and related sequencing protocols. Our software PoreOver ( ) finds the consensus of two neural networks by aligning their probability profiles, and is compatible with multiple nanopore basecallers. When applied to the recently-released Bonito basecaller, our method reduces the median sequencing error by more than half.
