Our second genome-human metagenome: how next-generation sequencer changes our life through microbiology.


Next-generation sequencing has greatly expanded our ability to query the identity and genetic composition of entire communities of microbial organisms. This area of research, known as metagenomics, does not rely upon culturing the individual organisms. Rather, the genetic material from the entire community is processed and sequenced simultaneously.
