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...

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
man.

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

You're right, it should have been but it looks a nice island nonetheless.

Must be great exploring all these new places, like one huge extended holiday (that's "vacation" to you guys now)
:-)

"Vacation" - yes I keep being 'corrected' on that one! Still, I much prefer holiday as a word. It does feel a lot like that for me (though not so much for Crickson), quite unreal in some ways, though i am keeping busy with data analysis from Leeds and knitting :)

(unreal in the normal sense, not unreal as in 'Awesome', there is a lot of 'Awesome' over here! :) )
