Study questions feasibility of entire genome sequencing in minutes

The claim that nanopore technology is on the verge of making DNA analysis so fast and cheap that a person's entire genome could be sequenced in just minutes and at a fraction of the cost of available commercial methods, has resulted in overwhelming academic, industrial, and global interest. But a review questions whether the remaining technical hurdles can be overcome to create a workable, easily produced commercial device.
