Press Coverage

We are just writing to make the readers of PLoS Genetics aware that there was an embargo breach in press coverage of this paper without our knowledge or permission. The Times of London, without our approval, published an article which we feel overstated the significance of this study.
We welcome comments from the PLoS Genetics readership about the actual results we obtained.
