Cry Freedom

My Name is Dr. Gordon Dunlop and my Ph.D. is in Environmental Physiology/Genetics. My thesis is entitled "Linking Germination Traits of Oilseed Rape (Brassica napus L.) to DNA Markers". So I am an academic and scientist. I have also a MSc. Information Technology where my master's dissertation was "Evaluating the Performance and Potential of Para- and Paene- Virtualisation Technologies in a Linux Beowulf Cluster".

I have been a Unix/Linux user for many years, still learning and trying to put back into the community at large. I use Fedora through personal choice as I believe it is the cutting edge of Linux distros and I feel comfortable with it.
