Editor rating: 7 / 10Alexander Mikheyev –– This article addresses a fundamental question about recombination and evolution.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Valeria Souza –– the problem of bee colonies been abandoned is a global issue for agriculture, however, even if the observations are not so new, as the second reviewer noted, the issue still controvertial
Editor rating: 8 / 10Walter van Gulik –– In this paper a powerful open source platform is described to perform in depth analysis of large omics datasets, without requirement of extensive bioinformatics skills
Editor rating: 8 / 10Kenneth De Baets –– It show how individual observations (e.g., kleptosquamy in amoebozoa) might have large effect on ancestral state reconstructions. The latter are key to date the diversification of these amoeboza with Si test and their link with rise of terrestrial ecosystems and the Si cycle. This has the potential to be of interest for various fields in biology, paleontology and beyond (geology).
Editor rating: 7 / 10Ilaria Negri –– It will help highlight the symbiotic relationship between the insect model Drosophila and yeasts
Editor rating: 8 / 10Valeria Souza –– The relationship between fages and bacteria is really important to untangle, this is a good step forward.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Ludmila Chistoserdova –– It describes the genetic makeup for a poorly studied organism with unique and interesting life style. As the culture is no longer available, the genome may guide future attempts on re-isolating these types of microbes that are known to be abundant in the environment.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Abhishek Kumar –– This workflow is important for analysis of microbial genomic samples.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Tanya Parish –– Temporal changes in nasopharyngeal carriage of Streptococcus pneumoniae serotype 1 genotypes in healthy Gambians before and after the 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine
