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 :)

Today in the tea rooms

(viewed 1551 times)
On my way home from the veg shop I had to stop for a cup of tea, where this
fine gentleman was playing solo jazz guitar. His name's Mike Irish and he
plays at the Four Seasons Tea Rooms on Fridays in June, and again later in
the year I think. When I asked if I could put his picture on MoblogUK he
said yes and very kindly gave me a CD, which I'm listening to now. I can't
describe how nice it was to be able to get out of the heat of the day and
listen to fine music with a cup of tea :)

Cheers Mike!

Just found this for more about Mike:

Four Seasons Tea Rooms, Houghton, MI

This has to be the last place I would have thought I'd find an
Edwardian-style tea room, complete with extensive china tea making
accessories around the walls and fine display of Edwardian hats. The choice
of teas was extensive and what we had was brewed to perfection. The cakes
were delicious, and I have now experienced scones with lemon curd and cream,
which was very nice indeed :)
It is quite dark inside though so I had to use night mode and try not to
move too much to take these.
Somehow I think I'll be back to this place :)

Historic Houghton

A first few shots from around town.
In the winter the central blue section of the bridge is lowered so that
snowmobiles can cross underneath and cars/trucks drive over the top.

Spring again

(viewed 1443 times)
I've never seen so much lily of the valley in one place before. There are
great drifts of it under all the trees around about and it smells amazing.
This is the 3rd spring I've seen this year and it's lovely but I do wish I
wasn't so very allergic to it :(
