A high Mn(II)-tolerance strain, Bacillus thuringiensis HM7, isolated from manganese ore and its biosorption characteristics
Young-Chae Song –– The data contained in the manuscript would be a good reference for further research in the same area.
Phylogenomic analysis of 589 metagenome-assembled genomes encompassing all major prokaryotic lineages from the gut of higher termites
Valeria Souza –– The extensive metagenome works within a system, thermite gut, allows us to understand much better the role of the microbiome in both cell biology, ecology and yes, also evolution.
Phosphorylation systems in symbiotic nitrogen-fixing bacteria and their role in bacterial adaptation to various environmental stresses
Valeria Souza –– nitrogen fixation is keystone of ecosystem cycling.
Comparative transcriptome analysis revealed genes involved in the fruiting body development of Ophiocordyceps sinensis
Pedro Silva –– This manuscript offers new insight into expression dinamics of genes related to O. sinensis fruiting body development.
Bayesian estimation of diagnostic accuracy of fecal culture and PCR-based tests for the detection of Salmonella enterica in California cull dairy cattle
Fernando Spilki –– The authors present an alternative cost-effective technique for the detection of Salmonella enterica in pooled cow fecal samples.
The interplay between movement, morphology and dispersal in Tetrahymena ciliates
Claire Paris –– Dispersal, in the broader sense of the term, is the movement away from the birthplace and is a common phenomenon that occurs in most living organisms at some point of their life history. The genotypic basis of movement behavior in unicellular organisms is an important finding
The impact of storage conditions on human stool 16S rRNA microbiome composition and diversity
Xavier Pochon –– This study explored the influence of time-to-freezing, storage preservation methodology, and stool heterogeneity on human microbiome profiles from a Ugandan community under resource-limited fieldwork settings. conditions 104 setting.
Accumulation of di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate from polyvinyl chloride flooring into settled house dust and the effect on the bacterial community
Monika Mortimer –– The article extends our understanding on how indoor chemicals may affect our immediate environment and through that - human health.
Environmental sampling to assess the bioburden of Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis in drylot pens on California dairies
Javier Alvarez-Rodriguez –– An advance to assess bovine tuberculosis infection
A recombinase polymerase amplification-lateral flow dipstick assay for rapid detection of the quarantine citrus pathogen in China, Phytophthora hibernalis
Siouxsie Wiles –– A very neat paper describing a rapid assay to detect plant pathogens from fruit.
