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.
