Whole Metagenome Sequencing

In this tutorial we will compare samples from the Pig Gut Microbiome to samples from the Human Gut Microbiome.

Whole Metagenome sequencing (WMS), or shotgun metagenome sequencing, is a relatively new and powerful sequencing approach that provides insight into community biodiversity and function. On the contrary of Metabarcoding, where only a specific region of the bacterial community (the 16s rRNA) is sequenced, WMS aims at sequencing all the genomic material present in the environment.
