Soil is one of the most complex and challenging environments for microbiologists. In fact, although it contains the largest microbial diversity on the planet, the majority of these microbes are still uncharacterized and represent an enormous unexplored reservoir of genetic and metabolic diversity. Metagenomics, the study of the entire genome of soil biota, currently represents a powerful tool for assessing the diversity of complex microbial communities, providing access to a number of newdoi:10.1016/j.resmic.2010.04.010 pmid:20452420 fatcat:qhyocb2brnh5zpcm3dgeatbxdu
