The Metagenomic Telescope

Figure 1

The original projection (upper panel) compared to the scheme of the Metagenomic Telescope (lower panel).

Projection 1 discovers genes or proteins in the metagenome that probably have similar function as the well-known starting proteins in front of the objective lens on the right hand side. Projection 2 directly identifies these proteins within the proteomes of the model organisms (as a set of UniProt accession numbers).
