Editor rating: 7 / 10

Christopher Cooper –– Useful bioinformatics tool for viral metagenomics
Discrimination of Picea chihuahuana Martinez populations on the basis of climatic, edaphic, dendrometric, genetic and population traits

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Robert Winkler –– The article has practical implications in the conservation of tree species.
Unimodal relationship between small-scale barnacle recruitment and the density of pre-existing barnacle adults

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Donald Kramer –– This is a well-executed field study that addresses density dependence of both attraction and avoidance of conspecifics over a broad range of densities in marine larvae settling from the plankton.
Chemical composition and the potential for proteomic transformation in cancer, hypoxia, and hyperosmotic stress

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Maria Cristina Albertini –– This is a good quality research paper and matches the journal standards.
Alien vs. predator: bacterial challenge alters coral microbiomes unless controlled by Halobacteriovorax predators

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Mauricio Rodriguez-Lanetty –– This study presents interesting data that show how some coral-associated microbes have the capacity to protect their host by predating on alien bacteria.
A novel genus and cryptic species harboured within the monotypic freshwater crayfish genus Tenuibranchiurus Riek, 1951 (Decapoda: Parastacidae)

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Keith Crandall –– This paper demonstrates that there is significant hidden diversity still to be discovered and described in this interesting group of Australian freshwater crayfish.
Whole genome sequencing of group A Streptococcus: development and evaluation of an automated pipeline for emmgene typing

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Keith Crandall –– This study presents a novel bioinformatics pipeline for emm gene typing from whole genome sequence data from Streptococcus, the most common etiological agent of throat infections.
CRF: detection of CRISPR arrays using random forest

Editor rating: 9 / 10

Gian Tartaglia –– The identification if CRISPR arrays is crucial to understand how the system works and can be manipulated in applications
Floral pathway integrator gene expression mediates gradual transmission of environmental and endogenous cues to flowering time

Editor rating: 8 / 10

Gerrit Beemster –– The approach integrates a large amount of data on flowering time regulation and provides a new method for this incorporating modelling with expression and phenotypic data.
