Metagenomic Analyses of an Uncultured Viral Community from Human Feces
Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
Here we present the first metagenomic analyses of an uncultured viral community from human feces, using partial shotgun sequencing. Most of the sequences were unrelated to anything previously reported. The recognizable viruses were mostly siphophages, and the community contained an estimated 1,200 viral genotypes.
