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.
Comparison of injury pattern and clinical outcomes between young adults and elderly patients with alcohol-related injury in South Korea 2011–2016
Bob Patton –– Alcohol related harm is pervasive across national boundaries. This paper introduces the relationship between alcohol and injury in a Korean context.
Allergic rhinitis, rather than asthma, might be associated with dental caries, periodontitis, and other oral diseases in adults
Cheng-Chia Yu –– AR might be associated with caries, periodontitis, pulpitis, gingivitis, and stomatitis/aphthae in young adults
The number of nephrons in different glomerular diseases
Gianpaolo Reboldi –– An important contribution on nephron number and function in different kidney diseases.
Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus and the One Health concept
Gregory Gilbert –– This paper is important as it incorporates the interdisciplinary approach of the One Health concept.
Validity of the iLOAD® app for resistance training monitoring
Scotty Butcher –– This new app solves a problem with current apps in the resistance monitoring literature by allowing real-time velocity feedback. The authors have shown excellent validity compared with direct velocity measures.
Application of cell-free DNA sequencing in characterization of bloodborne microbes and the study of microbe-disease interactions
Cheng-Chia Yu –– The research will facilitate our understanding how microorganisms participate in the onset and development of diseases
Infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus: advances in diagnosis and vaccine development
Mohammad Shamsur Rahman –– Excellent review on diagnosis and vaccine development of IHNV!
