Metagenomics: A Helping Hand

Mishika Ahuja | Sonali Thapa


Abstract: Increasing population, industrialization and removal of natural resources leads to increase in more pollutants in the atmosphere, creating problems for living organisms. Bioremediation is the most effective way to cure the problems related to the environment. Using the genomic level of microorganisms, the dataset is collected, and then annotation is done using next-generation sequencing methodologies. Hence, it is referred to as a peerless technology for bioremediation up-gradation. Without any need for the previous culture, the evaluation of DNA from microbial communities is usually termed as metagenomics. For the analysis, many computational tools have been developed and used for the exploitation of great invasion of data. This review mainly focuses on the high-tech computational tools used in sequencing technologies along with its further aspects. Moreover, we also provide applications for future related issues. We also discussed the evaluation of comparative metagenomics of diverse datasets using already developed datasets and annotation specifications.
