Metagenomic provides information both about which organisms are present and what metabolic processes are possible in the community. Because vast majority of natural microorganisms cannot be isolated and cultured or cloned by traditional analysis methods, next-generation high throughput DNA sequencing techniques enable us to directly sequence all genetic material in all organisms present in a given complex environmental sample. Metagenomic sequencing has no primer bias, allows the simultaneous study of all microbes (bacteria, archaea, eukaryotes and viruses) , enables the study of metabolic pathways, can identify down to the species level (and possibly even strain level).
