Providing New Insight into the Role of Microbes in Human Health and the Environment
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is opening a new era in microbial genomics, revealing new insight into how microbes interact with and impact humans and the environment. The accumulation of sequencing data has expanded our appreciation of the dynamic nature of microbial populations and their impact on the environment and human health.
NGS can further any microbial identification study, including those based on known organisms, and those with incomplete or no information, as in microbiome studies or environmental surveillance. Genomic data can be key for examining pathogenesis, horizontal gene transfer, pangenomes, and co-evolution of hosts and symbionts/parasites.
