Editor rating: 8 / 10Tomas Perez-Acle –– A parsimoniously executed research and well written article about transcriptomic studies on T. cruzi that may shed lights on novel targets for the treatment of the chronic disease produced by this parasite.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Stephen Wratten –– vital work on amphibian movement dynamics
Editor rating: 8 / 10D. Gareth Evans –– Panel tests are becoming the bespoke test for cancer predisposition
Editor rating: 8 / 10Valeria Souza –– Streptomyces is a very interesting genera with wide metabolic capabilities, the genome is a confirmation of this interesting metabolism
Editor rating: 7 / 10Yonghong Peng –– Interesting work.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Ugo Bastolla –– The method presented in this paper may be very useful to identify which taxonomic groups are driving the differences in the composition of microbial communities detected in different environmental samples with varying properties, thus facilitating the analysis of metagenomic experiments and large microbial communities.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Marina Kalyuzhnaya –– The article provides first insides into microbial communities of an unusual sub-terrestrial ecosystem.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Alexander Mikheyev –– This is a useful tool, which may be of use to many scientists studying TE insertions.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Gerard Lazo –– With reference genomes taking shape and becoming ready; background experiments to build hypotheses on genome structure are still relevant. Though a clear answer may not have been presented here, a negative result is not necessarily unhelpful; another approach should be contemplated.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Keith Crandall –– As biodiversity is continuously threatened and negatively impacted, studies like this that not only describe the basic taxonomic units of biodiversity, but place that information in a rich, phylogenetic, ecological, morphological, and geographic setting are essential.
