<p><!-- ABS -->The construction of metagenomic libraries has permitted the<sup> </sup>study of microorganisms resistant to isolation and the analysis<sup> </sup>of 16S rDNA sequences has been used for over two decades to<sup> </sup>examine bacterial biodiversity. Here, we show that the analysis<sup> </sup>of random sequence reads (RSRs) instead of 16S is a suitable<sup> </sup>shortcut to estimate the biodiversity of a bacterial community<sup> </sup>from metagenomic libraries. We generated 10 010 RSRs from a<sup> </sup>metagenomic library of microorganisms found in human faecal<sup> </sup>samples. Then searched them using the program BLASTN against<sup> </sup>a prokaryotic sequence database to assign a taxon to each RSR.<sup> </sup>The results were compared with those obtained by screening and<sup> </sup>analysing the clones containing 16S rDNA sequences in the whole<sup> </sup>library. We found that the biodiversity observed by RSR analysis<sup> </sup>is consistent with that obtained by 16S rDNA. We also show that<sup> </sup>RSRs are suitable to compare the biodiversity between different<sup> </sup>metagenomic libraries. RSRs can thus provide a good estimate<sup> </sup>of the biodiversity of a metagenomic library and, as an alternative<sup> </sup>to 16S, this approach is both faster and cheaper.<sup> </sup></p>
