Multi-omic techniques are often seen as the future of microbiome studies. We argue that recent strategies for simplifying complex omic-derived data will need to be combined with improved cultivation techniques to pave the way towards a more targeted approach for understanding microbial communities. 
Multi-Omics Approaches: The Key to Improving Respiratory Health in People With Cystic Fibrosis?
TLDR
Multi-omics approaches present the opportunity to untangle the complex interplay between microbe–microbe and microbe-host interactions in the lung and the relationship with respiratory disease progression, offering invaluable opportunities to discover new therapeutic approaches for the management of airway infection in CF.
Cultivation of elusive microbes unearthed exciting biology
TLDR
The curtain is lifted on some intriguing biology by cultivating and studying bacteria from the elusive OP9 phylum ( Atribacterota ), which has not been studied solely by cultivation-independent techniques such as metagenomics.
Metagenomic Analysis of Low-Temperature Environments
The Earth’s permanently cold biosphere is known to harbour abundant microbial biomass and represents a rich resource for the discovery of novel cold-adapted microorganisms, many of which form part ...
Multi-omics for Biomedical Applications
Multi-omics is a rising filed in omics science. Despite progress in the development of an appropriate single omics, in-particular for biomedical problem solving; the holistic look at the complex
Biological insights through omics data integration
TLDR
It is claimed that the difficulty in scaling remains one of the main reasons for the underuse of dynamic mechanistic models and the potential of machine learning to disrupt this scientific field as it has done for many others.
Art‐omics: multi‐omics meet archaeology and art conservation
TLDR
This minireview will focus on how proteomics and metabolomics can provide paradigm‐breaking results by unambiguously identifying peptides associated with a given, palaeo‐cultural context; and how metagenomics can be central for the identification of the microbial keyplayers on artworks surfaces.
Evolution of symbiotic lineages and the origin of new traits
TLDR
This thesis focuses on the genomic study of symbionts of two different groups of hymenopterans: bees and ants, and investigating their microbiom ...
Scaling up: A guide to high‐throughput genomic approaches for biodiversity analysis
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to present the most common and emerging DNA‐based methods used to generate data for biodiversity and biomonitoring studies, with particular attention to the DNA metabarcoding method.
Enlightening the Taxonomy Darkness of Human Gut Microbiomes With a Cultured Biobank
TLDR
The hGMB expands gut microbial resources and genomic repository by adding 102 novel species, 28 new genera and 3 new families, and 115 new genomes of human gut microbes.
Enlightening the taxonomy darkness of human gut microbiomes with a cultured biobank
TLDR
A publicly accessible human Gut Microbial Biobank was established that contained 1170 strains and represents 400 human gut microbial species and sequenced 115 genomes representing 102 novel taxa and 13 previously known species.

Linking bacterial identities and ecosystem processes: can 'omic' analyses be more than the sum of their parts?
TLDR
This review considers some advantages and limitations of nucleic acid-based 'omic' approaches and discusses the potential for the integration of multiple molecular or computational techniques for a more effective assessment of links between specific microbial populations and ecosystem processes in situ.
Trans-Omics: How To Reconstruct Biochemical Networks Across Multiple 'Omic' Layers.
TLDR
A trans-ome-wide association study connecting phenotypes with trans-omic networks that reflect both genetic and environmental factors, which can characterize several complex lifestyle diseases as breakdowns in the trans-omics system are proposed.
Genome sequences of rare, uncultured bacteria obtained by differential coverage binning of multiple metagenomes
TLDR
Reanalysis of published metagenomes reveals that differential coverage binning facilitates recovery of more complete and higher fidelity genome bins than other currently used methods, which are primarily based on sequence composition.
Insights into the phylogeny and coding potential of microbial dark matter
TLDR
This study applies single-cell genomics to target and sequence 201 archaeal and bacterial cells from nine diverse habitats belonging to 29 major mostly uncharted branches of the tree of life and provides a systematic step towards a better understanding of biological evolution on the authors' planet.
Functional assignment of metagenomic data: challenges and applications
TLDR
An overview of the current state of functional analysis of metagenomic sequence data, bottlenecks frequently encountered and possible solutions in light of currently available resources and tools is presented.
Diverse uncultivated ultra-small bacterial cells in groundwater.
TLDR
The hypothesis that bacteria from phyla lacking cultivated representatives are small and thus might be enriched by filtration for coupled genomic and ultrastructural characterization is tested.
Impact of Genome Reduction on Bacterial Metabolism and Its Regulation
TLDR
This “simple” organism makes extensive use of noncoding RNAs and has exon- and intron-like structure within transcriptional operons that allows complex gene regulation resembling that of eukaryotes, and Reconstruction of a bacterial metabolic network reveals strategies for metabolic control with a genome of reduced size.
d-OptCom: Dynamic multi-level and multi-objective metabolic modeling of microbial communities.
TLDR
d-OptCom is introduced, an extension of the OptCom procedure, for the dynamic metabolic modeling of microbial communities that enables capturing the temporal dynamics of biomass concentration of the community members and extracellular concentration of their shared metabolites, while integrating species- and community-level fitness functions.
Predicting bacterial community assemblages using an artificial neural network approach
TLDR
A bioclimatic modeling approach that leverages artificial neural networks to predict microbial community structure as a function of environmental parameters and microbial interactions that was better at predicting observed community structure than were any of several single-species models that do not incorporate biotic interactions.
A new antibiotic kills pathogens without detectable resistance
TLDR
The properties of this compound suggest a path towards developing antibiotics that are likely to avoid development of resistance, as well as several methods to grow uncultured organisms by cultivation in situ or by using specific growth factors.
