Thank you for publishing in PLoS Genetics

Whilst the subject matter is outwith my field of interest, I do appreciate the importance of this Manuscript.

I stumbled across an article in the Telegraph about this research although (unfortunately) there was no link to the Manuscript itself.

However, the article mentioned that this research was published in a PLoS Journal so I knew straight away that it was Open Access.

I therefore wish to publicly thank the Authors for choosing to publish in an Open Access Journal like PLoS Genetics thus making this research as widely available to all as possible.

Kind regards,
