Journal club wonkiness

I think their hypothesis is entirely wonko as it aims to answer a question on the origin of natural variance. #ihatefrogs

This paper introduces an interesting experimental approach to identify genes that both enable phenotypic plasticity and underlie adaptive changes across natural variants. I think that the authors should have defended the significance of their Principal Component phenotypes with respect to how those phenotypes are relevant in natural settings, otherwise there isn't a good reason to actually use the PC phenotypes in the downstream analyses.
