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...

From outside (underneath!) and inside (where it's safer). Still waiting for this little lot to fall. It's getting on for 1.5 metres at least.

We had at least 12 inches in one day on Monday. Crickson drove into work that day then couldn't find the car again! Had to knock snow off all the licence plates to find out which was his then do some serious excavating :)

Some people shovel their roofs, I don't think ours are a priority though, this is out the back of our block and there's so much snow you can't really get to it (unless you're daft enough to try opening the door a bit, ahem...).

Thanks :)
Maggie - I think it's another one of those brave/stupid moments. I seem to be having rather a lot of those lately, must be snow fever!
