Hello World!

Originally from the UK, I now live in the north of Sweden with Crickson

We are scientists :)

I also knit, bake and play the recorder, but not all at once.

Science resources:

Want to find out about proteins? Try this for starters - RCSB Protein data bank: Molecule of the Month in alphabetical order

Want to find out what is known about any particular gene? Here's a good place to start. - Entrez Gene This is probably my favourite starting point for finding out about a new gene of interest and has handy links to most of the references and sequence information.

Want to find a piece of peer-reviewed scientific research? Want to check the references from an article, or look up the publication record of an expert quoted in a newspaper or blog piece? Try this database. It will give you the abstract (outline) of every paper and will link to the full thing and tell you which articles are free and open-access. - NCBI's PubMed All newly published research is quickly added to this site.

Want to be able to decode DNA? This is how DNA codes for protein, and is, to my eyes, a thing of beauty. - The Genetic Code (presented here as RNA. For DNA, simply replace the U's with T's (Uracil with Thymine)).

And for geeks who need to get out more :) - The PCR Song and another PCR song

Good for your brain: - Ben Goldacre's Bad Science blog

It's the little things that keep you going...

At last! Welcome home Lucia :)

Express delivery required!

These were waiting for us when we got home tonight. It's going to take some express delivery to get them back to Leeds in time but it'll be worth it to have taken part. Hope we can help keep the BNP out at least.

Slipper limpets may seem to have a confusing sex life - whoever is on the bottom of the heap is female, and on top is male, those in between are hermaphrodite and can switch to being male or female if the top/bottom male/female dies. It works for them :)

horseshoe crabs

Yesterday we learned how to count horseshoe crabs for a monitoring program run by Save the Bay. I'd never seen a live one before - they are truly fascinating creatures which are equally fascinated by black rubber boots!
