This is one good example of the pseudo-science. How much is the outcrossing
rate in wild Arabidopsis? (in other word, how much is the *control*?, or
better, how much it was in that particular experiment?) This data is not
given, then it is concluded that 10% is caused by GE.
If normal outcrossing rate is 50%, GE are bad because reduced the rate ;-)
If normal outcrossing rate is 0%, GE are bad because enhanced the rate
If normal outcrossing rate is not tested or given, GE are bad because
outcrossing was (searched and) found in GE.
It is called CONTROL, it is what should *normally* happen, and it is
By the way, I also know other examples like this, of course without the
"Be part of the solution,
not the problem."
