Microorganisms are the major part of earth’s biological diversity. Although a lot of research was performed on microbial diversity, most of it is fragmented. This created a need to collect the information from highly reputed and impact resources. Recent Advancements in Microbial Diversity brings a comprehensive understanding of the recent advances in microbial diversity in different systems, such as gut. Recent Advancements in Microbial Diversity also discussed how the application of advanced sequencing technologies is used to unzip the unseen microbial diversity and its function.

Key Features

  • Gives insight in the exploration of microbial diversity in different systems
  • Addresses the novel approaches to study microbial diversity
  • Shows the use of omics to analyse the microbial community and its functional attributes
  • Discusses the techniques used to examine microbial diversity with their applications and respective pros and cons
