Hello,

I have a question. I have 6 samples in which I want to do metatranscriptomic sequencing, but my question now is whether I should use MiSeq or HiSeq technologies. I know HiSeq would give me much more reads depth but I am concerned about reads length as well. I am working with Antarctic samples so the microbial community is quite simple, however the organisms I might encounter are also not very well described, so longer reads would possibly help me further up with the assembly.

Any thoughts or experience about this?

Thank you!

Is your goal the metagenome assembly or to asses the functional activity of the microbial community?
