Microfluidic-based mini-metagenomics enables the investigation of environmental microbial communities in high-throughput and with single-cell resolution, facilitating genome binning and quantification of function, abundance, and genome variation.
A technique called meta3C provides an elegant and integrated approach to metagenomic analysis by allowing the de novo assembly, scaffolding and 3D characterization of unknown genomes from a complex mix of species
A mathematical model of bias in marker-gene and metagenomic sequencing measurements explains systematic errors in defined mixtures of microbial species, and enables quantitative and reproducible investigation of biological communities.
An in-depth metagenomic analysis of possibly the most abundant and widespread microbial lineage in the surface ocean teases apart evolutionary processes that maintain its genomic heterogeneity and biogeography.
Isolation of a gokushovirus capable of lysogenizing enterobacteria challenges previous notions about the biology of the most prolific phages within the Microviridae and facilitates experimental study in a model organism.
