Microorganisms dwell in almost every habitat, and are present in communities where they work together depending on the environment of the niche. Most of these microorganisms cannot be cultured using standard cultivation methods. Metagenomics offers a solution to study such microbes by using culture independent techniques. Metagenomics, also called community genomics, deals with the study related to DNA of microbial communities. This approach has been widely used in recent years to study microbial community compositions as well as its functional potential, identification of new enzymes, identification of new bacteria and much more.
