You can read more about Torsten’s travels and experiences in the USA while visiting the Coop lab at his trip blog SweepingUSA. My german is rusty enough that I can only just follow the general sense, so hope he doesn’t say anything too mean ;).
There are also more pictures of his going away party here.
Is it really mean if I’m just reporting facts!? 😉
Not really. I just hope your sweep didn’t drag up too many deleterious alleles. BTW your notes on the wiki made me laugh a lot. I’ve just finished teaching shall we talk soon?
