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.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Dunxian Tan –– This observation provides novel information in the field of ischemia/reperfusion protection
Editor rating: 7 / 10Jon Brock –– Autism research is increasingly moving towards a "big data" approach. This review of the available databases will be an invaluable resource for researchers in the field.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Mario Negrello –– This article contains an insighful and thorough analysis of the physical constraints for encoding and the processing of information in polarized vision, and more specifically, in polarization opponency. This article is exemplary for the field of neural coding in that it covers multiple angles in the analysis with solid logics and deep appreciation for the biological phenomenon under study.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Blanca Landa –– The new pipeline will be a valuable tool for people woorking in NGS of 16S amplicons
Editor rating: 7 / 10Luciano Fadiga –– technically sound, it addresses a relevant topic
