Metagenomics-based signature clustering and interactive visualization analysis
This paper proposes an integrated methodology to identify and compare metagenomic signatures, correlating them with environmental factors (when they are available) and a Bubble Tree visualization is provided to guide the exploration of the metagenomics signatures.


Comparison of multiple metagenomes using phylogenetic networks based on ecological indices
A novel approach that combines the use of taxonomic analysis, ecological indices and non-hierarchical clustering to provide a network representation of the relationships between different metagenome data sets, indicating that the analysis is very robust.
Detection of Large Numbers of Novel Sequences in the Metatranscriptomes of Complex Marine Microbial Communities
This study provides further evidence that metatranscriptomic studies of natural microbial communities are not only feasible, but when paired with metagenomic data sets, offer an unprecedented opportunity to explore both structure and function of microbial communities – if the challenges of elucidating the functions of so many never-seen-before gene families are overcome.
Short clones or long clones? A simulation study on the use of paired reads in metagenomics
This work shows that paired reads perform better than single reads, as expected, but also, perhaps slightly less obviously, that long clones allow more specific assignments than short ones.
Quantitative Phylogenetic Assessment of Microbial Communities in Diverse Environments
Mapping marker genes from four diverse environmental data sets onto a reference species phylogeny shows that certain communities evolve faster than others, and enables determination of preferred habitats for entire microbial clades and provides evidence that such habitat preferences are often remarkably stable over time.
Toward a Census of Bacteria in Soil
A statistical model is developed that makes the problem of estimating richness statistically accessible by evaluating the characteristics of samples drawn from simulated communities with parametric community distributions, and shows that generating sufficient sequence data to do so requires less sequencing effort than completely sequencing a bacterial genome.
Introducing SONS, a Tool for Operational Taxonomic Unit-Based Comparisons of Microbial Community Memberships and Structures
A computer program is presented, SONS, which implements nonparametric estimators for the fraction and richness of OTUs shared between two communities.
Introducing TreeClimber, a Test To Compare Microbial Community Structures
The implementation of the parsimony test, TreeClimber, is described, in which six previously published studies are reanalyzed and the results of the analysis are compared to those obtained using ∫-LIBSHUFF.
Response to Comment on "Whole-Genome Shotgun Sequencing of Mitochondria from Ancient Hair Shafts"
The authors are misreading and misinterpreting the conclusions of the study; they claim nothing further than that hair shaft represents an excellent source material for the shotgun sequencing of mitochondrial DNA genomes.
