Abstract: If the results of collaborations between experimentalists and computational biologists are hard to understand for those in the collaboration, then reviewers and readers of the paper will also struggle. Thus, authors are encouraged to present the results of these studies as clearly as possible and to avoid obscure, convoluted, jargonistic, or impenetrable descriptions.
