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 :)

Unfortunately we had to eat it all before it melted. It was a hard job but somebody had to do it :)

I'd never had ice-cream cake before. I think I prefer it to traditional birthday cake.

is it as good as arctic roll?

Spiderbaby says:

Nothing can compare with arctic roll, but it was very good cake - the chocolate bit in the middle was all crunchy and biscuity (proper biscuity) with a minty top bit and creamy bottom bit. Arctic roll is special for the jam/sponge/'vanilla' ice cream combination, Dairy Queen cake is a different species altogether (albeit containing ice cream). Like rabbits and hares - there are similarities but they're not as closely related as you might at first think.
