A follow up to yesterday's blog entry. How much time did it take to gather all the information from the entire bacterial genome using a USB connected instrument that looks like a large memory stick and featured in the paper in Crossing the P-river: A complete bacterial genome assembled de novo using only nanopore sequencing data ?
@IgorCarron This was 4 runs worth which took 48 hours each, so 8 days with 1 MinION (or 2 days with 4 MinIONs!)

Wow ! You're seeing history in the making.
