Contribute to upcoming EFB Bioeconomy Journal special issue: Improving Nutrient Efficiency for Crops

We would like to invite manuscripts discussing research relevant to improving nutrient efficiency for crops, which is so relevant for the future of sustainable agriculture. In this special issue, we are seeking to publish work of agronomical relevance or academic excellence, reporting fundamental findings, optimized agricultural practices, data analysis and theoretical work. View the Call for Papers on the journal homepage for more information and to submit.

As next-generation sequencing technology has become more advanced, research on microbial 16S ribosomal DNA sequences has developed rapidly. Sequencing of 16S ribosomal DNA allows the composition of bacteria and archaea in a sample to be obtained and many analytical tools related to 16S ribosomal DNA sequences have been proposed; however, most do not include a user-friendly platform with a graphical user interface. Here, a comprehensive and easy-to-use online platform, Easy Microbiome Analysis Platform (EasyMAP), has been developed for analysis of 16S ribosomal DNA sequencing data. EasyMAP integrates the QIIME2, LefSe, and PICRUSt pipelines and includes temporal profiling analysis. Users can perform quality checks, taxonomy differential abundance analysis, microbial gene function prediction and longitudinal analysis with step-by-step guidance.

SCI Event

3rd SCI-RSC Symposium on Transporters in Drug Discovery and Development

Cell surface transporters play a key role in human health and disease, both through their impact on drug disposition and as therapeutic targets in their own right. This meeting will feature talks on transporter structural biology, the impact of transporters on ADME and biodistribution, transporters as therapeutic targets and other aspects of transporters relevant to drug discovery and development.
