Abstract
The recovery and assembly of genome sequences from samples containing communities of organisms pose several challenges. Because it is rarely possible to disassociate the resident organisms prior to sequencing, a major obstacle is the assignment of sequences to a single genome that can be fully assembled. This chapter delineates many of the decisions, methodologies, and approaches that can lead to the generation of complete or nearly complete microbial genome sequences from heterogeneous samples-that is, the procedures that allow us to turn metagenomes into genomes.
