About this Research Topic
In light of metaomic developments and challenges, this special edition will focus on the issues with rRNA-gene based sequencing techniques with the aim to ultimately deliver methodological recommendations.
This Research Topic will also discuss advances in the field for increasing the understanding of the function of the rumen microbiome. Whilst this Research Topic will have methodological focus, original papers detailing use of these methodologies to address key agricultural challenges, such as production and mitigation of greenhouse gas will be a key component.
Keywords: Rumen, microbiome, metagenome, metranscriptome and metaproteome
