Microbiome, the unique combination of microorganisms present at any specific ecological niche, contributes to a plethora of vital functions that determines the functionality of the concerned niche. Noticeably, the significance of microbiomes is not only limited to certain model ecological niches such as human body, wherein human microbiome in general and gut-associated microbiome in particular have been reported to be one of the most critical components involved in efficient functioning of various human organ systems including digestive system, immune system and even the nervous system. Several other environmentally relevant ecological niches such as lakes, rivers, oceans, agriculture fields, mountains, glaciers as well as sites of industrial activities harbour microbiomes which impact the entire ecosystems. The vast microbiomes present in different ecological niches help directly or indirectly in their functioning by regulating many functions including the biogeochemical cycles of major elements such as carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus. Without an optimally functional microbiome,
