The use of molecular techniques for quantifying gene expression by transcriptomic and proteomic analysis in complex soil samples can improve the understanding of the role of many soil microbial species including uncultivable microorganisms, which are the majority of microorganisms inhabiting soil (Torsvik et al., 1996).
