Editor rating: 8 / 10Konstantinos Kormas –– A very good effort on putting together and analysing shrimp gut microbiota.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Maria Cristina Albertini –– I believe that prebiotics may have an important influence of immune response. More information are needed on intestinal barrier functions and this paper can be of support.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Carlos Conte-Junior –– This paper is very relevant in food microbiology.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Daniel Lahr –– This article attempts to retrace the complex history of re-construction of the photosynthetic pathway in organisms that went through serial endosymbiosis. It is likely to be relevant to biologists working on evolution, endosymbiosis and lateral gene transfer, thus making it a broadly interesting paper.
Section Editor rating: 7 / 10Siouxsie Wiles –– An important article that reminds us to be aware of the assumptions we make around databases and other resources we rely on.
Section Editor rating: 6 / 10Valeria Souza –– Cotton is one of the most important crops of the world and alkaline soil conditions are prevalent in arid soils, the use of probiotics to ameliorate the crop-soil interactions is very important for sustainable use of the land.
Section Editor rating: 8 / 10Siouxsie Wiles –– Sounds like a really interesting study to those working on plant fungal pathogens.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Sheng Chen –– Haemophilus parasuis is a very important pathogen in animals. More studies should be encouraged in this field.
Editor rating: 6 / 10Stefano Menini –– Appendectomy as a new risk factor for chronic kidney disease in diabetic patients: potential role for gut dysbiosis
Editor rating: 9 / 10Luciana Leite –– Multi-omics is a technique that can be applied to several fields.
