(We are ignoring the comments of P. Christou, as they bear little relationship to the actual article that we submitted, and was published in your Journal. Our remarks are directed to the critiques from Hull, R., Covey, S. N. and Dale, P. of The John Innes Centre, and from Oliver Rautenberg of Biolinx.)
