Default Intro

Me: Retired electronics/computer/laser/firmware engineer living on a yacht in Brisbane, Australia.

Pathway: An interest in genealogy led me to DNA testing and genetic genealogy. That then led to an interest in genetics, DNA and how life is made up. This is a different line for me, since I've always dealt with inanimate objects.

Where I'm heading: Thinking seriously about setting up a small lab and tinkering. More specifically, I'm looking at the Bento Lab and a used Ion Torrent. I have serious misgivings about the latter though, since the cost of reagents per use is silly expensive. Alternatives might include the ONT MinION although again the consumables are expensive and have a limited shelf life, which is bad for hobbyists.

What I hope to achieve: Eternal life? Grow wings? Unleash my super powers? Beats me. Maybe I'll just make genetically engineered glow-in-the-dark frogs. This is what happens when you retire, you get the chance to investigate bizarre things that previously would have taken too much time and attention away from basic survival.

Message for the reader: If you made it this far, kudos to you. Nice to be here.
