Extracting factual information from abstracts of high-impact journals is a cognitive challenge. For instance, beginners may not pay attention that claims such as "in diverse cell types" may only mean "in the two cell types that we tested". This reminds me a bit the patent jargon...
Perhaps we should supplement the singular and plural forms with a dual form (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dual_(grammatical_number)) in scientific litterature to make it clearer when "multiple" means "only two".
