Effects of preservation method on canine (Canis lupus familiaris) fecal microbiota (2018) PeerJ
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: 7 / 10James Reimer –– A very nice study that can serve as one of the first examples of global examination of bacterial communities in a cnidarian species.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Gerrit Beemster –– The involvement in of the micro biome in the functioning of plants (is it is in animals) is rapidly becoming evident over the recent years. This article is a nice example of this.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Paul Tulkens –– Interesting observations on endostosis and viruses.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Keith Crandall –– This study presents a novel bioinformatics pipeline for emm gene typing from whole genome sequence data from Streptococcus, the most common etiological agent of throat infections.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Ana Grande-Pérez –– A comprehensive and useful tool that will aid plant science community in the study of geminivirus genomics
Editor rating: 7 / 10María Ángeles Esteban –– The paper could be of great interest due to the actual limitations of proteins to fed aquatic animals.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Vladimir Uversky –– Interesting and important data are provided on the peculiarities and mechanisms of fumarate accumulation in Rhizopus delemar ATCC 20344
Editor rating: 8 / 10Blanca Landa –– The review was on time and very productive and thoroughly conducted
Editor rating: 8 / 10Valeria Souza –– Streptomyces is a very interesting genera with wide metabolic capabilities, the genome is a confirmation of this interesting metabolism
Editor rating: 8 / 10Ugo Bastolla –– The method presented in this paper may be very useful to identify which taxonomic groups are driving the differences in the composition of microbial communities detected in different environmental samples with varying properties, thus facilitating the analysis of metagenomic experiments and large microbial communities.
