coverage

The required sequencing depth for successful metagenome sequencing mainly depends on the complexity of the sample (number and representation of individual species) and the level of expected host contamination. Microbial communities of high complexity with high background levels of host DNA require more coverage than samples of reduced complexity and with lower host DNA contamination levels. In case of doubt we recommend performing a pilot on a sub-set of samples to determine the required sequencing coverage.
