Microbiomics Research Applications
Abstract: Microbiomics is a growing scientific field focusing on the quantification, characterization, and functional determination of complex microbial communities. Microbiomics utilizes microbiology, molecular biology, and bioinformatics analysis to study the composition of microorganisms and the inner workings of microbial populations in a distinct habitat and to assess microbe - derived genomic signatures, proteins, and metabolites. The current review examines microbiome research literature and extracts critical evidence highlighting current and potential benefits and applications of microbiome investigations in medicine, agriculture, and biotechnology. It focuses on how metatranscriptomic and metabolomic techniques have identified key molecules and mechanisms that have expanded our understanding of how microbial communities function in their natural ecosystem. Additional microbiomics research will continue to uncover essential microbial molecules and pathways of societal significance.
