Automatic detection of the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi in blood smears using a machine learning approach applied to mobile phone images
"This is an interesting contribution presenting a machine learning approach based on cell phones images for the automatic detection of Trypanozoma cruzi in blood smears."
Tomas Perez-Acle, Handling Editor
Genome-wide identification of CBF genes and their responses to cold acclimation in Taraxacum kok-saghyz
"The study using non-model plants provides novel findings about cold stress tolerance that is different from the model plant Arabidopsis."
Koji Mikami, Handling Editor
DeepNC: a framework for drug-target interaction prediction with graph neural networks
"Deep learning-based drug-target interaction prediction is a significant topic."
Yuriy Orlov, Handling Editor
COVID-19 mortality is associated with pre-existing impaired innate immunity in health conditions
"Agree with Satwant"
D. Gareth Evans, Handling Editor
Alterations in SARS-CoV-2 Omicron and Delta peptides presentation by HLA molecules
"Important observations were made related to the perturbed SARS-CoV-2 variants peptide presentation by HLA molecules"
Vladimir Uversky, Handling Editor
A systematic review on cough sound analysis for Covid-19 diagnosis and screening: is my cough sound COVID-19?
"I believe this is the first systematic review on analyzing the cough sounds toward COVID-19 diagnosis. The study includes all possible literature adopting PRISMA guidelines."
Sivaramakrishnan Rajaraman, Handling Editor
PipeCoV: a pipeline for SARS-CoV-2 genome assembly, annotation and variant identification
"The paper "PipeCoV: A Pipeline for SARS-CoV-2 Genome Assembly, Annotation and Variant Identification" presents a well-established SARS-CoV-2 pipeline with a lower content of Ns and higher genome coverage when compared to the Wuhan reference. The pipeline also provides a variant report available at https://github.com/alvesrco/pipecov"

A hybrid feature selection algorithm and its application in bioinformatics
"A hybrid feature selection algorithm has been proposed using the bio-information. The methodology refines the feature of the data with a great potential in helping scientists cross-discipline to identify novel targets and biomarkers for cancer research."
Qichun Zhang, Handling Editor
An issue of concern: unique truncated ORF8 protein variants of SARS-CoV-2
"The findings may shed additional light on the pathogenicity of SARS-CoV-2. It should be an important resource for the research community."
Jun Chen, Handling Editor
High-performance pipeline for MutMap and QTL-seq
"it is a nice contribution to the field."
