RNA sequencing - just my prediction

After the nanopore sequencing gets sorted out, the next thing will be the sequencing of RNA by a similar method. 

Reoviruses already kind of do it:

HPG pore: an efficient and scalable framework for nanopore sequencing data

The use of nanopore technologies is expected to spread in the future because they are portable and can sequence long fragments of DNA molecules without prior amplification. The first nanopore sequencer available, the MinION™ from Oxford Nanopore Technologies, is a USB-connected, portable device that allows real-time DNA analysis. 

 

Here we present HPG Pore, a toolkit for exploring and analysing nanopore sequencing data. HPG Pore can run on both individual computers and in the Hadoop distributed computing framework, which allows easy scale-up to manage the large amounts of data expected to result from extensive use of nanopore technologies in the future.
