With the rapid development of genomic science, portable nanopore sequencing technology has become a revolutionary progress in the field of bioinformatics due to its unique portability, real-time capabilities, and high-throughput sequencing capacity. This paper comprehensively analyzes the principles and characteristics of portable nanopore sequencing technology and its wide applications in environmental monitoring, epidemic prevention and control, and on-site rapid diagnosis. Through practical cases, it demonstrates how this technology provides efficient and real-time new solutions for biological research and public health emergency response. Meanwhile, it discusses the challenges faced by this technology, including data accuracy, sequencing costs, and data processing issues, and looks forward to the future development trends and application prospects. Portable nanopore sequencing technology not only promotes research in the field of bioinformatics but also has a profound impact on the formulation of public health monitoring and disease control strategies.
