Aerial metagenomics refers to collecting DNA samples from the air in a habitat at one go. It involves analyzing the genetic material (such as DNA) present in airborne particles, such as dust, pollen, microorganisms, and other biological matter. By studying the genetic composition of these samples, scientists can gain insights into the biodiversity, microbial communities, and other aspects of the environment.
