Molecular characterization and phylogenetic analyses of Lophodermella needle pathogens (Rhytismataceae) on Pinus species in the USA and Europe
Simon Shamoun –– This work is very much important because it describes molecular and morphological relationships among species within the Rhytismataceae, which are characterized as pine needle pathogens.
Molecular evidence for cross boundary spread of Salmonella spp. in meat sold at retail markets in the middle Mekong basin area
Charles Okpala –– The manuscript provides important information regarding the epidemiology of Salmonella spp. in meat markets.
Natural resources to control COVID-19: could lactoferrin amend SARS-CoV-2 infectivity?
Joanna Moraczewska –– Interesting topic. Reviewing the current knowledge about lactoferrin can be helpful in the coronavirus battle.
The effects of vegetable pickling conditions on the dynamics of microbiota and metabolites
Charles Okpala –– This work provides useful information about essential amino acid production, together with valuable information on pretreatment and salt stock preparation under vegetable pickling conditions.
Improved normalization of species count data in ecology by scaling with ranked subsampling (SRS): application to microbial communities
Craig Moyer –– This manuscript provides a superior alternative to analyzing community structure using rarefaction curves.
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
A recombinase polymerase amplification-lateral flow dipstick assay for rapid detection of the quarantine citrus pathogen in China, Phytophthora hibernalis
Simon Shamoun –– The molecular assays developed in this work is aimed at being used to detect the quarantine pathogen Phytophthora hibernalis in diagnostic laboratories, plant inspection departments specially under time- and resources limited conditions. RPA technique probably meets the regulatory agencies guidelines.
HERVs, immunity, and autoimmunity: understanding the connection
Fernando Spilki –– The manuscript gives an up to date and comprehensible overview about the interrelationships between HERVs and immunity.
Fine-scale differentiation between Bacillus anthracis and Bacillus cereus group signatures in metagenome shotgun data
Lesley Hoyles –– Highlights the need for careful analyses of metagenomic data when looking at closely related bacteria, and proposes a way of dealing with this. Applicable to metagenomic studies across a range of ecological niches.
Multi-omic profiling to assess the effect of iron starvation in Streptococcus pneumoniae TIGR4
Luciana Leite –– Multi-omics is a technique that can be applied to several fields.
