The fast-growing field of metagenomics enables rapid identification and unbiased characterization of the microbial communities associated with different biological specimens, based on high-throughput DNA sequencing coupled with robust bioinformatics. While all steps of this multistep process (sample collection to data analysis) are important in achieving high identification accuracy and maintaining the proper biological representativeness of the community, bioinformatic analysis of complex metagenomic datasets represents one of the most critical and challenging steps.
