On April 7 I posted a quick survey of the readership of this group. Here's
a summary of the results:
Responses were received from 97 readers, of which 69 were in the U.S. and
28 other countries. We have about 150 readers listed as e-mail
>Are you reading this by e-mail subscription or as a bionet newsgroup?
a few people said they used both methods, and were counted with e-mail
>Do you think it's a useful forum?
most people answered yes, some had additional comments
>Are you a regular reader of other bionet or usenet newsgroups?
"occasionally", "rarely" or other answers 8
>Do you ever use the Chlamydomonas gopher server?
no answer 3
If you're in the "no" group and need help getting started, please send me a
message (chlamy at acpub.duke.edu)
>If so, is there anything else you'd like to see added to it?
Various suggestions were made. I've responded to some by e-mail; stay
tuned here for further developments.
>Have you ever obtained cultures or plasmids from the Chlamydomonas Genetics Center?
no answer 3
>Are you a principal investigator/laboratory head?
>If not, does your PI/lab head read this newsgroup also?
not sure 3
>If a U.S. reader, do you obtain grant support from any federal agency? Please specify (NIH, NSF, DOE, USDA, NASA, other).

Some labs had more than one grant.
