Konstantinos Kormas –– Sampling and handling of samples is very crucial in -omics based studies and very often the necessary attention is not met in publiched works. Such studies are necessary... Read more
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.
