Section Editor rating: 7 / 10Siouxsie Wiles –– As soon as people hear the word mercury, they immediately associate it with toxicity and ill health. Shedding light on the role microbes play in this will be of wide interest.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Xiaomin Li –– The topic of direct interspecies electron transfer (DIET) between iron-reducing bacteria and methanogens has been paid more and more attraction these years, and iron oxides such as magnetite may function like e-pili to facilitate electron transfer. This study, however, demonstrates that e-pili are still necessary for the DIET between between Geobacter and Methanosarcina species, though the presence of magnetite can promote the methane production in this coculture.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Padmapriya Banada –– This article is important since we need more techniques like green synthesis of silver nanoparticles using plant extracts, which has potential to be used as antifungals as evaluated in this study. This gives additional avenues in drug development and evaluation.
