Metagenomics is the genomic analysis of a microbial community in an environmental sample. It can be applied in clinical and environmental microbiology, and many other fields.
Clinical metagenomics helps clinicians identify pathogens, including bacteria, plasmid, virus, etc., from patients’ samples and guide treatment strategies for patients with infections.
