Metagenome-scale analysis yields insights into the structure and function of microbial communities in a copper bioleaching heap

Abstract

Metagenomics allows us to acquire the potential resources from both cultivatable and uncultivable microorganisms in the environment. Here, shotgun metagenome sequencing was used to investigate microbial communities from the surface layer of low grade copper tailings that were industrially bioleached at the Dexing Copper Mine, China. A bioinformatics… (More)
