Biotechnology - Metagenomics as innovation driver


EU- European Communities


Metagenomics has the potential to provide unprecedented insight into the form and function of heterogeneous communities of microorganisms and their vast biodiversity, without the need for isolation and lab culture of particular organisms. Microbial communities affect human and animal health, support the growth of plants, are critical components of all terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and can be exploited to produce fuels or chemicals. However, in order to expand their potential further, the metagenomic methodologies need to overcome a number of challenges such as those related mainly to standardisation of experimental design, screening, sequencing technologies and bioinformatics relevant techniques.

Action primarily consisting of activities aiming to establish new knowledge and/or to explore the feasibility of a new or improved technology, product, process, service or solution. For this purpose they may include basic and applied research, technology development and integration, testing and validation on a small-scale prototype in a laboratory or simulated environment.

Proposals should address the development of technologies that form the metagenomic toolkit to guide future developments in the field with view to enable metagenomic approaches responding to societal and industrial needs. Similarly, epigenetic modifications and the RNA and protein data (e.g. on cell-cell level) could be addressed to elucidate functional dynamics of communities of microorganisms.
