|Abstract:||Environmental management decisions have to base on holistic understanding of biodiversity and functional capability in ecosystems. Environmental metagenomics is an emerging and powerful approach allowing rapidly and reliably determine and compare microbial biodiversity and functional profiles. Advances in next generation sequencing technologies and bioinformatic tools allow set up analysis pipelines which are useful for well designed and targeted monitoring exercises already today. In the paper we demonstrate how direct sequencing of the total community DNA and analysis of the data are applicable to assess anthropogenic impact on the coastal marine ecosystems.|
