Hello World from the lab!

Part spider - part lab monkey, will do science for cash, strawberries, or for a place to be that's out of the rain (but preferably for cash).

The rest of what I get up to goes into the Tunnel of Goats :)

Urgent Science Stuff:

Please help reform English libel law
Current UK libel laws are very bad for science and free speech.

Cool science stuff:

RCSB Protein data bank: Molecule of the Month in alphabetical order

The PCR Song It's the little things that keep you going...

NCBI's Entrez Gene My favourite starting point for finding out what is known about any gene of interest.

NCBI's PubMed Where to go to find pretty much all research published in the last 30 years or so (may go back a lot further now). All newly published research is quickly added to the site.

The Genetic Code - table of the DNA/RNA triplet codes for amino acids. This is how DNA codes for protein.

Another PCR song Disco frenzy :)

Looking for little green cells

This was from yesterday. 1 flask of cells transfected with nuclear receptor and luciferase reported plasmids + green fluorescent protein as a marker for transfection having taken place (i.e. if the cells have taken up the one that makes them turn green, there's a good chance they've taken up the other plasmids too). Checking for green fluorscence uses the pretty blue light.
Forgot to take a picture of the actual cells though. They were nice and green too. Next time, if there's nobody about :)
