[…] All contigs in the community metagenomes binned to the family Enterobacteriaceae or genus Pseudomonas were separated, and genes were predicted from these contigs by using Prodigal () with the metagenomic gene caller option. BLASTN was used to map genes and contigs onto the reference Enterobacteriaceae and Pseudomonas genomes listed in (using nondefault parameters of -X 150, -q -1, -F F, a […]
