Popgroup is over

Popgroup is over for another year - I am fairly confident that it was a success! This year, Popgroup was organised by myself, Tamsin Majerus, John Brookfield and Sara Goodacre, all Nottingham locals. In all, 225 persons attended from the UK, Europe, North America and several other continents. It was particularly pleasing to see that two Nottingham students, including Paul Richards from my lab, won the best student talk and poster prizes, with Ceridwen Fraser winning best non-student talk (media person and all round eminent snail person Professor Steve Jones was a close second). Registration for Popgroup46 in Glasgow (www.populationgeneticsgroup.org) will open later in the year.
