Metagenomics

Just a short post with some information:

Metagenomics is the new genomics :). NIH Roadmap has a new initiative, the Human Microbiome Project with a bit of funding :) . Meanwhile, other projects and databases are developing such as Integrated Microbial Genomes w/ Microbiome Samples (or IMG/M) and Camera. It’s an exciting and fascinating field (my former colleagues at the Bork lab just published interesting research in this field), though some scientists of course have their doubts.
