Editor rating: 7 / 10Christopher Lortie –– broad implications on philosophy of science and interpretation.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Henkjan Huisman –– Medical images are useless for research unless annotations can be added. This paper describes an elegant open source frame work to do this.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Alexander Mikheyev –– This could be a very generally useful tool.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Giovanni Benelli –– Predicting Zika virus outbreaks is a crucial challenge in parasitology and public health sciences. This research is timely and of great interest for a wide readership.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Christine Josenhans –– platform comparison for NGS high throughput sequencing; implementation of novel platform based on PacBio SMRT sequencing for 16S amplicon sequencing. These technologies are of prime importance in the ever-growing field of microbiome/microbiota research
Editor rating: 7 / 10Eric Schirmer –– For many cell fate decisions differences in gene expression or proteomic data from multiple studies raises a question of what are the most appropriate molecular markers. The approach in this article of large-scale data mining is a reasonable one that can be applied more widely and provides a good set of markers for mesenchymal cells.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Yong Wang –– High throughput technologies and machine learning method are used to reveal the signature for complex disease, which has great potential for clinical usage.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Pedro Silva –– Current analyses of aspirin action focus on its action in two key enzymes. In this work, the authors identify several other proteins which may be significantly inhibited by aspirin, and may be crucial in understanding the action and possible interactions of this classic drug.
Editor rating: 7 / 10William Amos –– This study is important because of its large and comprehensive geographic coverage. It should provide an excellent comparison point for future studies on other taxa, whether fish or not.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Gilles van Wezel –– The paper compares approaches to analyse microbial biodiversity across different samples. The work thereby provides insights to scientists into which approach may best suit their needs.
