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 :)

Where's Rebus?

(viewed 922 times)
And how did he get all the way over here and back without FF knowing about
it??? :)

life on the bike-path

(viewed 1494 times)
Came across this little guy and a local cat having a 'discussion' which the
snake wasn't enjoying too much by the sounds of things. Skillfully aided by
a passing cyclist the snake was persuaded back into the cemetery where it
was much less likely to be run over by bikes or harassed by cats. It looks
like some sort of garter snake.

Swamp time

On Sunday we went to the local swamp to hear the frog chorus, only it must
have been too cold for them (or they'd had enough by then) as they were
suspiciously quiet. It was a grey cold day so I had a bit of a play in
Picasa :)

Newport - town of pirates and adventure

On Saturday we went over to Newport on Quidnick Island (the original Rhode
Island of Rhode Island state I believe). The bus over there was driven by
the friendliest bus driver I think I've ever met, he was telling us all
about where we could go on which bus routes all over the place. Very nice

We had a lovely day wandering about the town and the harbour area, seeing
what we could see.
