Wang discovered Enhancer-Promoter interaction prediction is harder than it looks.

Dustin leads integrative analysis of CAGI5 regulation saturation challenge.

Highly cited researcher banned from journal board for citation abuse. I put this here because K-C Chou wrote many papers with and appears to have been a mentor to Bin Liu, who plagiarized our gkm-SVM paper as described in the several items below. Eleven papers co-authored by Bin Liu and K-C Chou were (self-)cited in the paper which plagiarized our gkm-SVM paper. See also the original reporting from Bioinformatics and Journal of Theoretical Biology. I'm glad K-C Chou finally got called out on his gross citation manipulation, but the problem is broader than just these two journals. Although K-C Chou was removed, his proteges were and still are on the boards of many other journals and continue their citation inflation through mechanisms not discussed in these articles. For example, these articles do not mention that the authors who added the ~30 citations to K-C Chou during the review process may have been explicitly promised future citations from K-C Chou in return. The group of authors who cite K-C Chou is small, but they all cite each other multiple times in each paper, exponentially inflating citations of all members of the group. The scientific publishing industry has been manipulated by their lack of attention to these problems. If they want to investigate, all they have to do is look at who continues to cite this useless paper over 600 times. You may notice a pattern. None of these papers are real and each of these journals allowed it to happen for some unknown reasons. The list of these journals is clear from the citation patterns.
