Editor rating: 7 / 10Konstantinos Kormas –– A very interesting paper for several disciplines related to the importance of antibiotic resistance in nature.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Juan Riesgo-Escovar –– It addresses methodological problems that hinder comparison of these type of results from different publications.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Peirong Jiao –– Wild songbirds or rodents play a key role in spreading avian influenza virus across an agricultural landscape.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Joël Mossong –– This is an interesting article on the microbial contamination of an unusual habitat in space, the international space station.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Fabiano Thompson –– addresses virus diversity in reef systems, and roles in genome plasticity.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Peter Prentis –– This article is the first comparative analysis of marsupial microbiomes.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Mohammad Shamsur Rahman –– in my opinion, it is very important to know the composition of gut microbiota in different culture stages to know the microbial health status and make plan to control any future disease outbreak!
Editor rating: 7 / 10Blanca Landa –– The ms will provide insights into the biology and ecology of tis important plant pathogenic bacteria
Editor rating: 7 / 10María Ángeles Esteban –– In this work the secreted proteome (secretome) of primary mature midgut cell cultures from Heliothis virescens larvae was studied after exposure to Cry1Ac toxin. These results identify a protein involved in the midgut regeneration process in response to Cry1Ac intoxication, the protein is arylphorin.
Editor rating: 7 / 10A. Murat Eren –– Ananke provides a framework to investigate temporal sampling efforts by organizing marker gene sequences into clusters of ecological patterns. While Hall et al. reports improvement over the current marker gene workflows with this approach, they demonstrate how clustering data based on sequence identity may obscure detailed investigations of ecological patterns in time-series data.
