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?

e-mail 63
newsgroup 34

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?

yes 52
no 37
"occasionally", "rarely" or other answers 8

>Do you ever use the Chlamydomonas gopher server?

yes 49
no 45
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?

yes 65
no 29

>Are you a principal investigator/laboratory head?

yes 62
no 35

>If not, does your PI/lab head read this newsgroup also?

yes 15
no 17

>If a U.S. reader, do you obtain grant support from any federal agency?  Please specify (NIH, NSF, DOE, USDA, NASA, other).

NSF 37
NIH 22

Some labs had more than one grant.
