Editor rating: 9 / 10Pankaj Jaiswal –– This article on Torreya grandis (Taxaceae) an ancient conifer species that is endemic to southeast China provides an important insight into the population structure and distribution of the species. It also generated the genomic resources necessary to move forward the research on Torreya grandis.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Peter Dunfield –– Will specificaly interest those working on methanogenesis, but more broadly the technical novelty may appeal to many microbial ecologists interested in mining metagenomic datases.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Yong Wang –– This paper performed exom sequencing to study high myopia and identified several potential disease genes. The data and analysis provides a valuable resources for the field.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Massimiliano Zanin –– An interesting demonstration on how data can be represented using new web-based technologies.
