  • diversity
  • Because of its ability to reveal the previously hidden diversity of microscopic life, metagenomics offers a powerful lens for viewing the microbial world that has the potential to revolutionize understanding of the entire living world. (wikipedia.org)
  • viral
  • Here, we describe viral communities inhabiting oxic surface (10 m) and oxygen-starved basin (200 m) waters of Saanich Inlet, a seasonally anoxic fjord on the coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia using viral metagenomics and complete viral fosmid sequencing on samples collected between April 2007 and April 2010.

  • genes
  • In order to decipher the role of bacteria and better understand the diverse metabolisms occurring in the ocean, she uses ecological genomics, metagenomics and metatranscriptomics to study the genes and activity of marine bacteria in nature. (wikipedia.org)
  • Venter viewed the slow pace of progress in the Human Genome project as an opportunity to continue his interest in patenting genes, so he sought funding from the private sector to birth Celera Genomics. (wikipedia.org)
  • In contrast to genetics, which refers to the study of individual genes and their roles in inheritance, genomics aims at the collective characterization and quantification of genes, which direct the production of proteins with the assistance of enzymes and messenger molecules. (wikipedia.org)
  • term
  • The term "metagenomics" was first used by Jo Handelsman, Jon Clardy, Robert M. Goodman, Sean F. Brady, and others, and first appeared in publication in 1998. (wikipedia.org)
  • While the word genome (from the German Genom, attributed to Hans Winkler) was in use in English as early as 1926, the term genomics was coined by Tom Roderick, a geneticist at the Jackson Laboratory (Bar Harbor, Maine), over beer at a meeting held in Maryland on the mapping of the human genome in 1986. (wikipedia.org)
  • Interest
  • Much of the interest in metagenomics comes from these discoveries that showed that the vast majority of microorganisms had previously gone unnoticed. (wikipedia.org)
  • Open Access
  • The chapters are almost overwhelming (full disclosure, I have two chapters in here - both of which are republications of Open Access papers I have published on metagenomics). (blogspot.com)
  • various
  • As various reviews on the genomics and metabolism of Bifidobacteria have been reported recently [ 5 - 7 ], specific attention for this group is not in the remit of this paper that will focus on the true LAB. (biomedcentral.com)
