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...

Will find out how many stitches there are tomorrow when I can take the bandage off.

Ouch!
Hope you heal quickly

Spiderbaby says:

Thanks :) I hope so too. It turns out seeing one's own kneecap is less fun than you might think! I was very lucky it wasn't worse.

Caine says:

Yeeouch! I've done similar, sliced up my right knee good and proper several years back. Rest it, and don't push too hard to be actively walking again. I did that, it didn't help.

I'm being sensible so far. Nurse crickson is very strict!
Hoping to hobble round the lab tomorrow. I'll be careful. I'm not taking pain killers so that I'll know when it's not happy.

they are very horrid pavements round your parts (so to speak). Get your 0wn Prince I say.

Spiderbaby says:

It's not really painful unless I bend it, so I don't. I have a highly amusing comedy limp now. All I need is a bigger hump and more of lisp and will make a good Igor.

Yes FF, the number of times I warned you about those pavements rather came back to haunt me!

Oh dear A I missed this one. I do hope you get well soon. XXX

Poppet says:

Ouch that looks painful, hope you are feeling better now!

Spiderbaby says:

It's much better now thanks. Stitches are out and my leg hasn't fallen off so that's good. Nearly good as new.

Sue! There will no talk of lawyers! Accidents happen. That's all there is to it.

Helen says:

Lawyers aren't banned from this thread altogether I hope?

Eeeek. I am still reeling from the mention of the seeing of one's own knee cap. Here's to a quick recovery.

Spiderbaby says:

Oh no, lawyers are fine, just so long as they're not being given silly things to do by people who should know better :) You are allowed some time off after all.

Helen says:

Heh, that's what most lawyering is :)
