Editor rating: 7 / 10Alex Ford –– The research of thermal tolerance and thermal stress between and within species is an important field in the study of changing climates and the ability of organisms to adapt. This manuscript provides some interesting new data on the inter & intra species differences in heat shock protein responses of temperature stress.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Dunxian Tan –– This observation provides novel information in the field of ischemia/reperfusion protection
Editor rating: 9 / 10Mario Negrello –– This article contains an insighful and thorough analysis of the physical constraints for encoding and the processing of information in polarized vision, and more specifically, in polarization opponency. This article is exemplary for the field of neural coding in that it covers multiple angles in the analysis with solid logics and deep appreciation for the biological phenomenon under study.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Joseph Pawlik –– The importance of DOM in coral reef ecosystems is just beginning to be appreciated -- this paper is on the leading edge in this research area.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Luciano Fadiga –– technically sound, it addresses a relevant topic
Editor rating: 7 / 10Xavier Pochon –– This study reports the diversity of dominant and background symbiotic dinoflagellates in a range of common scleractinian corals from an understudied region (Moorea, Tahiti).
Editor rating: 8 / 10Cong-Jun Li –– The selection of suitable reference genes is crucial to accurately evaluate and normalize the relative expression level of target genes for gene function analysis. This manuscript provides some important information about the references genes for pigs, one is of important economic value.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Leon Higley –– Given their broad ecological impacts, this work significantly adds to growing evidence of risks associated with the use of neonicotinoid insecticides.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Ivo Feussner –– This is one of the first in which RNA seq data are made publicly available for this organism.
