about this item
Inexpensive high-throughput sequencing has allowed for the complete characterization of microorganisms inhabiting the most diverse environmental niches, including agricultural- and food-related niches. This approach is generally referred to as metagenomics and its application to solving agricultural issues will dramatically change the way we produce our food and ensure its safety. This book offers a thorough overview of the application of metagenomics to animal, plant, and food science.
