Alex Bateman accepts the 2010 Benjamin Franklin award

Alex's acceptance speech for the 2010 Benjamin Franklin Award in the Life Sciences is now online at The fearless leader of Xfam, grounded by a piddly wee volcanic ash cloud and forced to videoconference to his adoring public. Meanwhile, I'm supposed to schlep over to Cambridge for the annual Xfam meeting in a couple of weeks, and I guarantee that Alex won't accept any volcanic excuses from me.

Congratulations, Alex, and to the whole Pfam and Rfam teams in Cambridge!
