La métagénomique

Metagenomics

Developments and Future Applications


M. Zagorec, M. Champomier-Vergès

Edition 2015

Metagenomics has followed the genomics era and invaded the domain of biology. Studying the genetic content of a sample from a complex environment (intestine, ocean, soils, air, etc.) found in Nature (as opposed to samples cultivated in a laboratory), it produces vast quantities of data very quickly that require considerable computer processing to draw out the information. The aim of this work is to enlighten non-specialist scientific professionals on the possibilities offered by this tool to explore the various domains of agriculture, environment, food-processing and health by analysing living organisms.

Marine Bacteria and Biotechnologies

Marine Bacteria and Biotechnologies


J. Guézennec

Edition 2014

The sea not only nourishes us, it can also look after, cure and participate in our well-being. An invisible component exists in this marine biodiversity - the microbial component. Here perhaps will be found new medicines (pain relief, cancer relief, antibiotics), new therapeutic approaches, new active ingredients in cosmetology and new molecules potentially resolving current problems in society. This book addresses a few of the opportunities offered by these micro-organisms and the hopes hinging on these so-called "blue biotechnologies".
