The problem of determining the birational nature of the moduli space of curves of genus g has received constant attention in the last century and inspired a lot of development in moduli theory. I will discuss progress achieved in the last 12 months. In particular, making essential of tropical methods it has been showed that both moduli spaces of curves of genus 22 and 23 are of general type (joint with D. Jensen and S. Payne).
