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
Editor rating: 7 / 10Christine Josenhans –– This article is a large body of work, which significantly expands currently available data on Neisseria gonorrhoeae genome evolution. It also includes some knowledge advance about antibiotics resistance.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Hauke Smidt –– Well conducted study with relevant methodological innovations important to microbial diagnostics
Editor rating: 7 / 10Tom Coenye –– Large-scale studies on bacterial diversity/biogeography are important to understand fundamental ecological processes.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Frederick Cohan –– This paper presents the first compelling data for population expansions in various unrelated lineages of bacteria that are free-living and not pathogens. Moreover, the timing of the population expansions appears to coincide with major known human-caused environmental changes.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Guo-Qiang Chen –– Better understanding the cellulose utilization mechanism.
