Editor rating: 9 / 10Walter de Azevedo Jr. –– The authors report the development and application of a suite of tools, called PBxplore. This computational tool can be used to analyze the dynamics and deformability of protein structures using Protein Blocks (PBs). It is an interesting development for scientists interesting in molecular dynamics simulations of protein structures.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Fabiano Thompson –– addresses virus diversity in reef systems, and roles in genome plasticity.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Peter Prentis –– This article is the first comparative analysis of marsupial microbiomes.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Philip Cox –– This article describes a new technique for analysing the results of FEA. It has the potential to be used widely in the discipline.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Zemin Ning –– RNA-seq analysis is very useful and popular and we should expect general interests from the community.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Christopher Cooper –– One of very few articles on Trichoplax, an emerging model organism of increasing importance in evo-devo biology.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Antonio Palazón-Bru –– A methodological approach to be taken into account to assess the quality of predictive models.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Kenta Nakai –– I believe that the manuscript deals with a very new and important topic and might be cited well.
Editor rating: 7 / 10A. Murat Eren –– Ananke provides a framework to investigate temporal sampling efforts by organizing marker gene sequences into clusters of ecological patterns. While Hall et al. reports improvement over the current marker gene workflows with this approach, they demonstrate how clustering data based on sequence identity may obscure detailed investigations of ecological patterns in time-series data.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Michael Hallett –– The paper addresses the potential of viral metagenomics in a general fashion that could impact the design of many studies.
