In this issue of Developmental Cell,Lee et al. (2019) and Falo-Sanjuan et al. (2019) examine the transcriptional dynamics of Notch signaling in vivo. Both groups show that Notch signaling produces "bursty" transcriptional responses and that variance in these responses stems from changes in duration, not frequency, of transcriptional bursts.
