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...

Pastafarians! They would have got my vote ;)
Glad to see Sarah is taking it very seriously ...
Love that bingo sheet .... :D

Sarah was concentrating very hard on her bingo sheet, as was I. It certainly made you listen out, and made me wish I'd had it while listening to last weeks edition of the news quiz on R4, where someone did indeed think Sarah Palin was hot. Stupid, but hot. Takes all sorts I guess! :)

MaggieD says:

It was Ian Hislop who was ( allegedly) accused of seeing Sarah Palin as hot ....

Another one! I shall have to re-check my news quiz podcast. Someone on there was of the same mind (or at least aware of the comic effect of being so). We do miss Have I got News for You, thank goodness we can still get radio 4.

MaggieD says:

I think I rate the News Quiz above Have I Got News for You (though Sandy Toksvig does grate a little) .... but I do so love Andy Hamilton ....

Perhaps Hislop has confessed himself too but Francis Wheen has definitely admitted his pecadillo in respect of pitbulls in lipstick & Versace.
A weakness shared, we learn, on tonight's R4 News Quiz, by Bob Marshall-Andrews*.

I truly despair sometimes.

Am rather in favour of Toksvig - would like her or Dilly Keane as the next Dr Who but the boys will never have it... :(
