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 :)

I have been battling bindweed all year. It grows wild here, and it's a constant fight. I love these shots, they're fantastic.

It is pretty indestructable stuff and grows wild here too. I'm sure you can see it grow :)

Caine says:

I think so too. The stuff is trying its best to choke out any other life form in the yard. I swear, I rip out a dozen of them by the roots, and you look the next day and there are 4 dozen in the same spot. There's a part of me that admires such tenacity; the rest of me wants to take a flamethrower to them.

Flamethrower might do it, or possibly glyphosate... :)

This stuff is covering the Wirral at the moment. I couldn't believe how much of it there was when I was visiting my parents at the weekend.

I'm thinking we take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

I reckon after a nuclear war, bindweed will be the only plant left!
