It would be nice to take this work and apply it to antiaging and cryonics

research. A few years ago, I suggested coming up with a mathematical model

of cryopreservation so as to come up with better cryoprotectants through use

of genetic algorithmns. (My assumption was the model would be highly

nonlinear and very complex so that this method of search would be better

than trial and error or an exhaustive search.)

Anyone interested in this?

And what is the current method of research on this? I hear about results,

but I'm not sure about the program. I assume it's basically trial and error

because the results seem disjointed.

Let it snow!
