Based on my experience using MinIon reads, especially those that are 2D, it is easier to close 2-10 Mb genomes when compared to Sequel. The error rate of MinIon is considerably lower. This said I'm not sure how relevant it is right now as it cannot be sold commercially.

Based on data I have seen for PacBio the chances of that being achieved are pretty good. We are just getting out feet wet with MinION.
