Abstract: The excrement of wild animals contains a complex and huge microbial community,which plays an important role in the survival history of wild animals. Studying fecal samples can provide an understanding of the species and composition of microorganisms in wild animals,the diversity and identity of microorganisms,and the symbiotic and evolutionary relationships between microorganisms and hosts,which provides a theoretical basis for the prevention and diagnosis of animal-borne infectious diseases and shows academic value and significance for choosing the future research focus and development trend of relevant disciplines. This paper summarizes the research progress in metagenomics and its application in fecal microorganisms of wild animals,and prospects the future development trend and research focus,in order to provide theoretical and technical support for the prevention and diagnosis of diseases caused by contact with wild animals.

Key words: Metagenomics, Wild animal, Fecal microorganism

摘要: 野生动物粪便中蕴含着复杂、庞大的微生物群体,这些微生物在野生动物的生存史中发挥重要作用。利用粪便样本可初步揭示野生动物体内微生物的种类与组成,探讨微生物间存在的多样性与同一性,了解微生物与宿主间的共生、进化关系,为防治、诊断动物源性传染病提供理论依据,对未来相应学科的研究重点与发展趋势判断具有学术价值和意义。该文概述了宏基因组学国内外研究进展及其在野生动物粪便微生物中的应用,展望未来的发展趋势与研究重点,为防治与诊断由于接触野生动物引起的疾病提供理论和技术支持。
