I wonder what are the possibilities towards finding drug/metabolite candidates using metagenomics data. Metagenomics data only provides prokaryotic related data (well, there would be some host genome as well), I wonder what are the possibility to study host-metagenome interaction towards finding drug/metabolite candidates.

Don't wonder, search.

Thanks for sharing these links and sorry for not making it clear. I am more curious about the computational approaches on this matter rather than experimental efforts. e.g from geneX, in KEGG database, what are the reasonable practices one can take to generate a list of metabolite/protein candidates. How can I take the Gene sequence, look it up and see what enzyme/protein are transcribed. The same regarding metabolites.
