Portable DNA sequencing 'laboratory'

One of the first research Institutes to be part of MAP, TGAC plans to use the miniaturised sequencing device to conduct live environmental surveillance; rather than gathering samples to take back to the laboratory, enabling the researchers to deliver real-time experimental genetic data for immediate analysis. The team of scientists trialled the miniaturised sensing system by sequencing environmental samples, containing DNA from hundreds or thousands of different organisms.
