I wanted to thank David for his many comments in the ongoing discussion of the Dwyer et al. retractions, including his pointing out that the 2007 Journal of Molecular Biology article from this group was also formally retracted and, most recently, two enlightening electronic letters to Science (particularly the one from Dr. Richard at SUNY Buffalo) on this case.
“One very interesting section of Andrea’s [Gawrylewski, The Scientist] blog entry that has not appeared online before is that “Shortly after the original paper appeared in Science in 2004, Hellinga went to give a seminar in Berkeley to present his new findings. [Jack] Kirsch said he brought up the issue with the Km and asked to see Hellinga’s data but never received it.” Yet another lesson to learn from this whole fiasco.”
