Functional Metagenomics : Microbial Diversity, Interaction, and Application in Bioremediation Paperback / softback
Part of the Developments in Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology series
Paperback / softback
Functional Metagenomics: Microbial Diversity, Interaction, and Application in Bioremediation uses a 20-chapter, easy-to-understand format to centralize the practical application ideas for functional metagenomics.
This important resource not only includes chapters on next-generation sequencing technologies to study important biogeochemical cycles, degradation pathways and detoxification, but also gives insight into several tools that have been developed to integrate metadata and sequence data, allowing downstream comparative analyses of different datasets using several ecological indices.
The book's content further explains newly developed techniques for sequencing DNA, generating shorter fragments than Sanger sequencing techniques to quickly read larger sequences in a shorter amount of time.
The content finally explores the role of metagenomics in studying microbial diversity, interaction, and application in bioremediation studies and gives the reader overall detailed information regarding metagenomics and its application and techniques.
