The ISME Journal TOP TEN

The top ten charts the articles that have been downloaded most often over the previous 15 days, in HTML and PDF format, from the The ISME Journal website. The chart does not rank the quality, scientific significance or citation impact of the content. However, it may bring articles to your attention that you might not have otherwise noticed. We hope you enjoy them.
