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 :)

all I need to know is does it have alcohol in it ?

Spiderbaby says:

Oh yes. The Brown stuff is just vodka with some cinnamon sticks in it. The green stuff I don't think is alcoholic, but is apple flavoured (and, of course, apple-coloured). The 'classic' appletini is 1 part vodka to 1 part green stuff over ice in a fancy glass. The cinnamon vodka is to see if appletini's behave like apple pies, in that a bit of cinnamon often goes nicely with.
I suspect it might make for an oddly brown drink...

i dunno could taste horribly synthetic

Spiderbaby says:

Well the cinnamon is real at least. You're forgetting the Frootloop effect though... Some people really really like synthetic!

ah yes!

We tried it on Saturday and it's actually really nice! Quite a surprise. Now named the Cinnatini by Seri. It tastes rather like ice-cold mulled cider, without the cider. A success I think. :)
