Researchers tested the new technology with a complex problem -- determining the cause of antibiotic resistance in a new multi-drug resistant strain of the bacterium that causes Typhoid. The results, published today in the journal Nature Biotechnology, reveal that the small, accessible and cost effective technology could revolutionize genomic sequencing.
