Study of microbial diversity in Mediterranean Sea water samples by the use of metagenomics technique


Author(s): Jamilah Ali Ahmad Zaed, Poonam Singh and Amit Alexander Charan

Abstract: Microbes were the first organisms on Earth but the diversity of the microbial world is largely unknown, with less than one-half of 1% of the microbes have been estimated. The goal of this study was to examine the bacterial diversity in water samples by metagenomics technique which came out in recent years. Metagenomics is considered as a powerful method to study the bacterial diversity in environmental directly without culturing it. Four water samples of Mediterranean Sea were selected for comprehensive metagenomics exploration and nucleotide sequencing was performed on the microbes captured by sanger shut gun 16s rRNA gene and analysis for Phylogenetic approaches were also used to determine relationship between all types of bacterial sequence and provides unprecedented insight into bacterial diversity, which implausible to culture. The results show four new strains were pathogenic in nature. The results show four strains Streptococcus anginosus, Vibrio vulnificus, Staphylococcus aureus and Vibrio vulnificus were obtained in the study.
