My paper on Drosophila X chromosome regulation is online now

I am pretty happy that my paper on the comparison of the mRNA translation rates between X chromosome and autosomes is online now at http://mbe.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2015/10/19/molbev.msv227.abstract. This work shows that Drosophila X-linked genes have overall lower (~17% or more, depending on the examined samples) translation rates than autosomal genes, thus predicting a lower protein abundance. This is changing the traditional view that X and autosomes have equal expression overall.
