Welcome to my blog! Or, welcome to my virtual lab! In fact, a real lab, where I use the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster to study interesting biological questions, about aging, epigenetics, evolution, the meaning life and the folly of human existence. The catch is, I have to do this on a tiny budget. Funding and publishing has gotten so BIG that I really want to find another way to do science. Same method, smaller scale. Stay tuned! I have Big Plans for this Small Science.
