Only I wanted to say that phenotype is the result of genotype and environment. You'll have to take it in account when you study those mutations, he he ;).

Well I saw a documentary on Discovery which stated that one of the things that leed to us aging is the cecular respiration which takes place in the mitocondrias. When we breathe they release in our organism a substance (or smth like that) which has a bad effect on our organism. And as u said some descoveries were made and apparently it makes life longer.

That substances are free radicals (superoxide, etc).

Do you have any idea just how many critics there are about the process of genetic engineering itself?
