Metagenomics is defined as a branch of genetics which deals with the study of genetic material from environmental samples. It is the genomic analysis of microorganisms by direct extraction and cloning of DNA. Metagenomics deals with the study of microorganisms which cannot be cultured. Metagenomics has emerged as a powerful tool that can be used to analyze microbial communities regardless of the ability of member organisms to be cultured in the laboratory.
