Went into bioinformatics after a master's in astrophysics, since interstellar travel takes more years than humans live. A cure for ageing is the dream!

Thanks very much for joining.

Please let me know if you have any questions about setting up your profile or using the services page or network generally.

ps Have you looked at work on estimates of the age of clonal plants? Some can be hundreds to thousands of years old! They must have wonderful DNA repair systems. At the other extreme, some plant seedlings can remain static for years, until their time in the sun comes, literally.

Thank you for your warm welcome, Peter!

I was wondering if there's a forum or otherwise where you can ask scientific/work questions for everyone to see?

I have not looked much into plants no, I just know that Methuselah (the bristlepine) holds the individual record. The clonal colonies are interesting indeed, however. Like you say, they must have some seriously foolproof maintenance systems!
