You won't get a lot of coverage but you can do 48 hour runs and re-use the flowcells to increase coverage.
What do you think the upper limits are? When ONT first talked about the MinION, they said it could generate ~1Gb of data before it burned out, but I'm not sure if that limit is still in place. If it is, then it means you could get roughly 1M reads of 1kb length, 500k reads of 2kb, 100k reads of 10kb, etc. Would love to see some real world RNA results!
