James’ interesting survey of where and when (and even how) duplicated regions diverge in terms of their chromatin structure appears in Genome Biology and Evolution (Prendergast et al, 2014). I realise nobody wants to hear scientists moaning about the peer review process (yet again). But jeez – this paper went through several journals over the course of ~18 months – and is more or less unchanged as a result. Someone needs to at least try to find an alternative for the stodgy, inefficient process we’ve ended up with. Maybe this is it?
