@Imin200 @chicaScientific @DrosophilaDave Indeed. I think the term is generally not useful. Do not use.
Wow. One of the dominant gut bacteria in flies reduces longevity and causes extensive intestinal pathology. There is a light and dark side of symbiosis - thanks for sharing @Imin200 and @chicaScientific ! 
@brandonscooper @Amelia_Lindsey @chicaScientific @dnaslave @ABrooksy19 @srbordenstein Show the single promoter for the operon. Differential regulation of two genes, and weak transcription across the A/B junction could be explained by incomplete termination at end of A, or operon. Single promoter is the ultimate arbiter. Operon can't be assumed as only explanation.
