    Hi,
    Is it ok to do the metagenome analysis with MG-RAST? Or does it have a major shortcoming?

    It is more than just OK.
    But, as everything, it has pros and cons.
    One of the major advantage is that you don't need local computational efforts, because everything is done at their servers.
    And maybe the main disadvantage is that it you are limited by the analyses and outputs they have chosen. However, there is enough diversity and flexibility of them to do many of the most relevant.
    Another problem is the lack of an official forum like the ones of mothur and qiime.
    But in my opinion, go for it, you won't regret.

      Improved Targeted Sequencing: A Comprehensive Guide to Amplicon Sequencing
      by seqadmin



      Amplicon sequencing is a targeted approach that allows researchers to investigate specific regions of the genome. This technique is routinely used in applications such as variant identification, clinical research, and infectious disease surveillance. The amplicon sequencing process begins by designing primers that flank the regions of interest. The DNA sequences are then amplified through PCR (typically multiplex PCR) to produce amplicons complementary to the targets. RNA targets...

      Targeted Sequencing: Choosing Between Hybridization Capture and Amplicon Sequencing
      by seqadmin




      Targeted sequencing is an effective way to sequence and analyze specific genomic regions of interest. This method enables researchers to focus their efforts on their desired targets, as opposed to other methods like whole genome sequencing that involve the sequencing of total DNA. Utilizing targeted sequencing is an attractive option for many researchers because it is often faster, more cost-effective, and only generates applicable data. While there are many approaches...
