Itty Bitty DNA Sequencer

2 Mar

A tiny DNA sequencer the size of a flash drive? For only $900? Yes please.

 

 The MiniON has been used successfully to read the genome of the lambda bacteriophage, which is about 48500 base pairs in length. Pretty impressive, little guy. I love the thought of having lab equipment I can carry around in my purse at all times. You never know when a science moment will occur, and you want to be ready! Like some super awesome superhero of science!
