Editor rating: 8 / 10Walter van Gulik –– In this paper a powerful open source platform is described to perform in depth analysis of large omics datasets, without requirement of extensive bioinformatics skills
Editor rating: 8 / 10Kenneth De Baets –– It show how individual observations (e.g., kleptosquamy in amoebozoa) might have large effect on ancestral state reconstructions. The latter are key to date the diversification of these amoeboza with Si test and their link with rise of terrestrial ecosystems and the Si cycle. This has the potential to be of interest for various fields in biology, paleontology and beyond (geology).
