"Discovering the Functional Potential of Microbial Communities Through Whole Metagenome Shotgun Sequencing Analysis"

It is estimated that under 1 percent of all microbes have been characterized in culture. Metagenomic approaches are key to unlocking this treasure of hidden biological information. Metagenomics allows researchers to discover not only which microbes are uncultivable, but also to gain insight into their functional potential.

Microbial communities in extreme environments are receiving increasing interest. These inhabitants can survive under extraordinary conditions, and insights as to their functional capabilities and survival strategies are of potential value for industrial, medical, and commercial applications.

This white paper from Qiagen presents data showing that Actinobacteria and Proteobacteria dominate the microbial community at a polar desert in Antarctica, demonstrating the utility of CLC Genomics Workbench software and CLC Microbial Genomics Module for analyzing the composition and functional potential of microbial metagenomes.
