Prevalence and molecular characterization of some circulating strains of the peste-des-petits-ruminants virus in Saudi Arabia between 2014–2016
Fernando Spilki –– The articles describes the phylogenetic characterization of Peste-des-petits-ruminants virus (PPRV) circulating in Saudi Arabia.
Characterization of the bacterial microbiota composition and evolution at different intestinal tract in wild pigs (Sus scrofa ussuricus)
Abhishek Kumar –– cross discipline
A low caffeine dose improves maximal strength, but not relative muscular endurance in either heavier-or lighter-loads, or perceptions of effort or discomfort at task failure in females
Amador García-Ramos –– This article is important because it examined the effects of caffeine on a number of variables in a sample of women which is more rarely examined in the scientific literature.
Synthetic dietary inulin, Fuji FF, delays development of diet-induced obesity by improving gut microbiota profiles and increasing short-chain fatty acid production
Maria del Carmen Portillo –– This study described the positive effects of a synthetic inulin, Fuji FF, on energy metabolism, fecal SCFA production, and microbiota profiles in mice fed with a high-fat/high-sucrose diet.
Cavity treatment in primary molars and malocclusion: quasi-randomised clinical trial
Abhiram Maddi –– This article is important for dentists.
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
Prognostic factors and survival outcomes according to tumor subtype in patients with breast cancer lung metastases
Walter de Azevedo Jr. –– In this paper, the authors described a study focused on prognosis of breast cancer lung metastases. The manuscript brings analysis of data obtained from 6516 patients with lung metastatic breast cancer. Their results gave new insight into the incidence, prognostic assessment, and risk stratification of breast cancer with lung metastases, enriching the study of the epidemiology of this occurrence.
A Sparse-Modeling Based Approach for Class Specific Feature Selection
Tzung-Pei Hong –– It is a good paper and may provide some reference values to the scholars in this field.
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.
Candida albicans cell wall integrity transcription factors regulate polymicrobial biofilm formation with Streptococcus gordonii
Paul Tulkens –– Mixed flora biofilms are quite frequent and one may wonder whether these are more difficult to eradicate than monospecies biofilms. This paper shows that fungi (C. albicans) plays a facilitating role (rather than being just an innocent bystander) in oral biofilms and infections. Thus, the paper may help in rationalizing what has been suspected so far and could also illustrate how one organism cooperates with another to promote their survival.

Journal guidelines improve, but do not fix the problem of antibody validation. (Easy compliance through identifying information improves, but actual experimental validation is slow.) See our analysis in @ThePeerJ. #antibodytesting #validation https://t.co/5DziGKp10S
