Reconstructing the genomic content of microbiome taxa through shotgun metagenomic deconvolution.

Metagenomics has transformed our understanding of the microbial world, allowing researchers to bypass the need to isolate and culture individual taxa and to directly characterize both the taxonomic and gene compositions of environmental samples. However, associating the genes found in a metagenomic...
