Meta-Ribosomalomics: RNA sequencing is an unbiased method for parasite detection of different sample types

Wylezich, Claudia GND; Höper, Dirk GND

In this perspective article, we review the past use of ribosomal sequences to address scientific and diagnostic questions. We highlight a variety of sequencing approaches including metagenomics and DNA barcoding and their different demands and requirements. Meta-ribosomalomics is introduced as an unbiased approach to exploit high-throughput sequencing datasets for eukaryotic and prokaryotic ribosomal sequences. Prerequisites, benefits, drawbacks, and future perspectives are elaborated and compared to other sequencing approaches.
