Josh Quick describes his recent work to monitor ebola in Guinea using the MinION.
The MinION is scheduled to travel to the International Space Station, where it will perform the first DNA sequencing in space.
In this talk I will cover the highs and lows of being part of the Oxford Nanopore MinION Access Programme. Our laboratory joined the MAP programme in May 2014.
Motivation: The highly portable Oxford Nanopore MinION sequencer has enabled new applications of genome sequencing directly in the field.
