Targeted Metagenomics

Targeted Metagenomics-1

In the realm of microbiology, targeted metagenomics serves as a specialized method to investigate the genetic make-up of microbial communities found across diverse environments. This technique zeros in on specific genes or areas within the shared genome of these microbial clusters, aiding in the comprehension of their variety, function, and ecological significance.

In contrast to conventional microbiology approaches which mainly focus on the cultivation of individual organisms, metagenomics offers a way to directly analyze the DNA or RNA extracted from all the microorganisms present in a given sample, without the need for culturing. This method is particularly beneficial for studying the majority of microorganisms in various ecosystems such as soil, water, and the human gut, which cannot be cultured or isolated in a laboratory setting - giving rise to the field of metagenomics.
