      Background: The use of metagenomics in enzyme discovery constitutes a powerful approach to access to genomes of unculturable community of microorganisms and isolate novel valuable biocatalysts for use in a wide range of biotechnological and pharmaceutical fields. Results: Here we present a novel esterase gene (lip3) identified by functional screening of three fosmid metagenomic libraries, ...
