No comments please, we’ve made it through peer review (?)

Recently Daniel MacArthur pointed to the vibrant discussion over at Genomes Unzipped on a moderately infamous paper from Science last year, Widespread RNA and DNA Sequence Differences in the Human Transcriptome, asserting that it is “exactly what open peer review should be like.”  This made me wonder, it’s been over five years since Chris Surridge [...]
