Paper: Exact sequence variants should replace operational taxonomic units in marker-gene data analysis
The Environmental Microbiology Journal club discusses a recent paper of interest pertaining to microbial ecology, environmental microbiology, metagenomics, and emerging microbiology on a biweekly basis. One person selects the article of interest and provides a brief overview of the main findings and implications of the work. A group discussion follows.
This week's paper from the ISME Journal: Multidisciplinary Journal of Microbial Ecology talks about next generation sequencing and metagenomics. Join host Prof Laura Hug to learn more!

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
