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 :)

Building our one-nighter

8 hours in the freezing cold, shovelling, making slush, building, carving and ironing! This was our community effort at the all-nighter ice sculpture.
Temperature was -14F or thereabouts, I lost track how many times I lost my fingers and toes! Was great fun :)

Brilliant! .... from the cosy warmth of my snuggly sofa I would like to say I would love to do something like that .....

It was really good fun, despite the frostbite warnings! The ironing is to make the ice all smooth and shiny (and very hard), and also for melting a patch so you can stick more snow onto it, like ice glue. It's about the only time my iron has been used :)

Ah, now I know what that weird shaped bit of electric gadetry is for ......

That was at the end of 8 hours in seriously sub-zero temperatures playing with snow. We were so relieved to be finished. I like that Abishek on the right hand side was wearing oven mitts over his gloves to keep the cold at bay a little longer :)
