Sometimes the system you’re working on just doesn’t work the way you hope. So what do you do? Write a paper in PNAS blaming the system? Well, a paper has just appeared in PNAS with the title “Bimodal gene expression in noncooperative regulatory systems”. Damned regulatory systems – they should be water-boarded.
Alas the truth about the paper seems more prosaic:
