Hi Duncan et al.,

It looks like there are a number of ways for commenting on the paper. I 
don't know if Lincoln Stein is reading this list. If not, it may be 
worth contacting him to see if he is aware of the HCLSIG activities and 
to let him know that we found his paper interesting and have some 
constructive comments for his paper. If he thinks it's OK for us to 
submit a short correspondence (<1 page including references) to Nature, 
we may contact the Editor of Nature Genetics to see if such a 
correspondence would be of interest to them. Otherwise, we can just 
relay the comments via the Wiki and/or Nature Network. Please let me 
know what you think.
