Editor rating: 6 / 10Elena Papaleo –– A new web tool to investigate the cooperative action of transcription factors and microRNAs in regulating gene expression with a focus on cancer.
Editor rating: 6 / 10Yuriy Orlov –– This is classical bioinformatics work on promoter analysis.
Editor rating: 6 / 10Ian McDonald –– Adds new methodology which will uesful to other research groups
Section Editor rating: 8 / 10Elena Papaleo –– To experimentally identify functional short linear motifs (SLiMs) is challenged by their very low affinities. This paper introduces a new computational pipeline to assess how useful a certain protein-protein interaction dataset can be to capture SLiMs. I believe that it will be a very nice tool for many researchers working with protein-protein interactions with in-vitro and cellular assays, as well as for computational biologists.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Jin-Kao Hao –– The work tackles an important topic with an interesting approach and advances the state of the art in the field.
Editor rating: 6 / 10Chris Vulpe –– Neanderthal alleles may influence our response to toxic stress
Editor rating: 8 / 10Jürg Bähler –– A new method for reconstructing large transcriptional networks that removes some of the computational bottlenecks of such genome-scale analyses.
Section Editor rating: 7 / 10Elena Papaleo –– A new and interesting approach to improve compression of sequencing data to tackle the related issues in NGS data processing.
Editor rating: 6 / 10Joseph Gillespie –– This study entertains an alternative (and rather contentious) hypothesis on the origin of Archaea.
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.
