Ludmila Chistoserdova Is metagenomics resolving identification of functions in microbial communities? Microbial Biotechnology 7
We are coming up on the tenth anniversary of metagenomics, the method involving whole shotgun sequencing of community DNA. It is marked by dramatic changes in the rate of sequence data accumulation, presenting new challenges in the massive data analysis. I here present a critical outlook at the current state of metagenomics, with special focus on the potential of metagenomics for gaining insights into the function of complex microbial communities.
