We're all inbreds - review of Steve Jones talk

Geoff Swinfield has written an interesting review of a talk he attended last Thursday at Gresham College, London, given by geneticist Steve Jones, which was called Incest and Folk-Dancing: Two things to be Avoided.

It's a good write up, and from what I can gather an enjoyable talk. The bottom line is we're all inbred genetically! Have a read at Geoff's blog at

(With thanks to Geoff)
