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...

Brr. Yep, definitely post-autumnal. I'd knit some of those flip-top mittens as well if I were you.
In fact, this might be the time to learn the ways of felt...

Thanks! The snow's still here today so I'm guessing it'll stick around for the duration now.
Poor Crickson had to drive to Lansing yesterday, through pretty awful snow storms most of the way! It took 12 hours instead of the 9. I was very relieved when he called to say he'd got there.

Not sure I'm quite ready for felt... Thermal undies, I can do :)

this looks more romantic - somehow less cold too

"Not ready for felt?" Heh. I defy you not to have a whisper of "Oh, I could make some of those!" when faced with these Russian valenkis; http://www.rusclothing.com/traditional-russian/felt-boots/
The Finns do a very nice line; http://www.huopaliikelahtinen.fi/index.php?option=com_content&task;=view&id;=5&Itemid;=26
Also, because I'm evil - here's a handy chart for figuring out how much wool you'll need to make your own. ;) http://members.peak.org/~spark/FeltBootPattern.html

Spiderbaby says:

Hmmmm. Acid and boiling water.... Probably got some of that around here somewhere...

No, really I mustn't. Not now. I'm supposed to be finding a job :(
The handy chart really is quite evil. Thank you :)
