Diminished Capacity

I'm surprised no one has pointed out yet the obvious weakness in the latest Nature-published data mining attempts. Clocking in at a mere 59, 23 and 30 authors respectively, these studies clearly must be trivial compared to earlier findings. Heck, Geraldine Dawson didn't even bother to get herself placed on any of the authorship lists, the chances of which must have been something like 0.0001%. (I had Matthew State confirm the statistics on that last figure.)
