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!
