Teaching next-generation sequencing to medical students with a portable sequencing device

Jorge Cervantes, Cynthia Perry, Min Chih Wang
2020 Perspectives on Medical Education  
We opted to use the MinION, which is a new portable DNA sequencer that can produce data in real-time at a relatively low cost, for a NGS hands-on workshop with medical students.  ...  Technical complexity and cost have been the major obstacles in incorporating these technologies into the classroom.  ...  The incorporation of these topics into the classroom has, however, been challenging, due to an implied high degree of technical complexity [7] , and costs.  ...
