PeerJ, the journal, is now divided into separate Sections by field.
Section Editors have oversight of their section to ensure the journal maintains a fair peer review process and the highest standards of scientific practice in their fields.
Within each Section, the Academic Editors regularly identify and highlight the most important new PeerJ publications in their field. Learn more & Meet the Section Editors.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Praveen Arany –– Important data for regenerative endodontics that can, someday soon, prevent the need for root canal treatments!
Editor rating: 8 / 10Lanjing Zhang –– The authors compared the ncRNAs and mRNAs expression profiles of hepatocellular carcinoma and adjacent normal tissues by microarray and RT-PCR. They found that MiR-125b-2-3p and lncRNAP26302 may affect the G2/M phase of the cell cycle through the regulation of their respective target genes. The findings may provide potential targets for future liver cancer treatments.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Amanda Ridley –– Linking species ecology and climate change impacts on habitat is an important tool to predict future population growth.
Section Editor rating: 8 / 10Siouxsie Wiles –– This is a really neat study, looking at antibiotic-resistant bacteria in damselfly poo as a potential means of identifying what resistant-bacteria are present in the wider environment. I would love to see them extend the study to look at genomic analyses rather than being limited to what they could grow on selective agar.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Paolo Giordani –– An in-depth study on the effects of elevation on the fungal community of the phyllosphere associated with a single tree species.
