Making Advancements in Microbiome Analysis
Researchers have been slow to embrace new tools which now make it possible to analyze microbiomes using exact DNA sequences without being overwhelmed by errors. Benjamin Callahan, associate professor Department of Population Health and Pathobiology and member of the Microbiomes and Complex Microbial Communities cluster, explains how this resistance is holding science back in an article for The ISME Journal: Multidisciplinary Journal of Microbial Ecology.
More Than a Numbers Game: New Technique Gauges Microbial Communities by Biomass
New technique allows researchers to get a more in-depth view of microbial communities.
