Metagenomics

The study of the broad range of genetic material (DNA, RNA, nucleotide sequences) that is present in particular environments or natural samples, representing a mixture of the microbes present and the collective summation of their genes.  Metagenomics is a new field that has been enabled by next-generation DNA sequencing technology, which circumvents polymerase chain reaction.
