Editor rating: 7 / 10Christine Josenhans –– platform comparison for NGS high throughput sequencing; implementation of novel platform based on PacBio SMRT sequencing for 16S amplicon sequencing. These technologies are of prime importance in the ever-growing field of microbiome/microbiota research
Editor rating: 7 / 10Maria Rosaria Corbo –– The results of this paper demonstrating that H2-rich environments exert a direct influence on soil H2-oxidizing bacteria in addition to indirect effects on other members of the bacterial communities can be considered a significant contribution about the knowledge in the field.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Gilles van Wezel –– The paper compares approaches to analyse microbial biodiversity across different samples. The work thereby provides insights to scientists into which approach may best suit their needs.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Gerard Lazo –– Though focused on limited samples, the initial premise to build methodology to study the secretome may help expand approaches to screen additional mutants and help catalog genes important in the plant-microbe interaction. This work also addresses agriculturally important research.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Offer Erez –– The understanding of the human microbiom in immune privilige sites is important and tyhis manuscript contribute substantially to this field
Editor rating: 7 / 10Ravi Tandon –– The article is important because it describes about detecting different types of Rotavirus in the stool samples. This assay will allow others to detect the virus using the one-step multiplex real-time PCR assay without doing cDNA synthesis and the PCR, and will help others in their ongoing research.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Gilles van Wezel –– The work provides evience on the genetic basis for ferredoxin:NAD+ oxidoreductase bioactivity in different bacterial systems.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Timothy Read –– Novel role for quorum sensing in Pseudomonas pathogenicity.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Gilles van Wezel –– the update of Swarm will hopefully be a useful bioinformtic tool for those in the field of amplicon sequencing and clustering.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Offer Erez –– The article further elucidate the host environment interaction in preterm parturition this is important topic that better understanding in the future may enable us to develop new treatment modalities for the prevention of these complications.
