Understanding and Analyzing Viral Communities with Shotgun Metagenomics (ASM 2014 Workshop)

Last week I attended the annual American Society for Microbiology (ASM) meeting in Boston.  This is a HUGE meeting (I'm talking thousands of microbiologists all in one place) with a lot going on.  There was so much going on that I decided to break my discussions on the meeting into a couple different posts.  This post is going to be about the viromics (the study of viral communities, which are called viromes) workshop I attended on the first day.
