Metagenomics of Plant Microbiomes
The collective genomes of the holobiont plant comprising diverse microbiota encode a number of functions required for the host as well as for supporting the interaction between the plant and its associated microbiome. This chapter reviews various plant habitats for microorganisms, microbiome functions, and functional as well as sequence-based metagenomics screening approaches, which can be used to elucidate holobiont functioning.
