Due to its chemical composition, organisms can’t live inside of it. For this reason, it can never spoil.

Poor geneticists:

Quote:
The Leningrad seedbank was diligently preserved through the 28-month Siege of Leningrad [WWII]. While the Soviets had ordered the evacuation of art from the Hermitage, they had not evacuated the 250,000 samples of seeds, roots, and fruits stored in what was then the world's largest seedbank. A group of scientists at the Vavilov Institute boxed up a cross section of seeds, moved them to the basement, and took shifts protecting them. Those guarding the seedbank refused to eat its contents, even though by the end of the siege in the spring of 1944, nine of them had died of starvation.
