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 :)

Or sepia Lake Superior, with the intrepid Crickson out on the ice. He went a lot further out than I dared (one polar bear dive is quite enough for me). :)

Perhaps it is... Northern Michigan can sometimes feel so far away you may as well be in space :)

Oh dear, that is pretty serious. We'll have to do something about that!
