Abstract

New technological advances come with their limitations, biases, and drastic improvements on how we can observe life. Metagenomics is no different. This overview focuses on some of the elements that need to be taken into account prior to planning a sequencing experiment. From students and traditional researchers to those involved in citizen science, there are a few things to keep in mind.
