Next-generation sequencing of bacterial communities such as the human distal gut microbiome has generated a
vast metagenomic sequence space. A common feature emerging from these analyses is that the genomes of intestinal
bacteria are enriched with genes dedicated to the metabolism of indigestible dietary polysaccharides. Although cultureindependent
techniques are unparalleled in their ability to probe and catalog carbohydrate active enzyme gene diversity
within complex communities, downstream functional genomic approaches are still required to elucidate the mechanisms
by which these enzymes and pathways function. Harnessing the potential of biocatalytic repositories, such as the human
distal gut microbiome, will continue to facilitate the informed discovery of potent enzymes and help drive innovation
towards the sustainable conversion of plant cell wall biomass.
