Herath, Damayanthi; Jayasundara, Duleepa; Ackland, David; Saeed, Isaam; Tang, Sen-Lin; Halgamuge, Saman


Assessing biodiversity is an important step in the study of microbial ecology associated with a given environment. Multiple indices have been used to quantify species diversity, which is a key biodiversity measure. Measuring species diversity of viruses in different environments remains a challenge relative to measuring the diversity of other microbial communities. Metagenomics has played an important role in elucidating viral diversity by conducting metavirome studies; however, metavirome data...[Show more]
