Bioinformatics tool for metagenome analysis

18 marzo 2015

A new method for DNA analysis of microbial communities, such as those found in the ocean, the soil, and our own guts, has been developed by scientists. «We have developed a new tool in this rapidly expanding and evolving field of what is called ‘metagenomics'» said a researcher. «It uses nucleic acid data and looks for sections that map uniquely to a preconstructed database.»
