n/a n/a n/a Rejected (im.)
Motivation: Very reasonable comments. The paper was seriously considered, however the novelty was not at the level of excitement for Cell. I wish the immediate rejection would not take full 2 weeks. Also we received the decision letter only after the follow up email.
Cell n/a n/a 4.0

n/a n/a n/a Rejected (im.)
Motivation: Editor seems not familiar with the topic.
Cell n/a n/a 6.0
days
n/a n/a n/a Rejected (im.)
Motivation: Editor wrote a nice letter. They were unsure how 'interesting' our story was: so it was sent for 'informal external review' to one expert. That expert suggested rejection, so the paper was not sent for formal review. Though disappointing, it was at least decent to have had the Editor consider our ms carefully.
