Here we present the computer simulation of a model for ageing, which incorporates hereditary mutations and favours in some way deleterious mutations to advantageous mutations. We simulated the behaviour for infinite population and have studied through finite size scaling how the behaviour of a finite system approaches that of an infinite system.
