Hi there! My name is Lance Lafontaine.

I am a student at Concordia University in software engineering, with a previous degree in molecular biology. I enjoy all things tech, science and startups, but I especially love web development, open source software, and camping (outdoors).

Chat with me @LanceLafontaine or lance.lafontaine92@gmail.com, I love meeting new people in virtual and physical settings.

Can you explain what these links do? Just posting links as an answer is bad practice: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/8231/…

@Chris, exactly. If you treat your DNA well, it would treat you well (experimentally, that is). :)

comment DNA degradation rate
Not that common, but just think about how it only takes one enzyme to destroy your entire sample. A "source" of nucleases can be from your fingertips too, which is why its very important to wear gloves when dealing with DNA directly.
