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...

Flocks of them, moving from tree to tree. They don't settle for long before they're off on to the next.

Top shot adjusted brightness to show their colours. Bottom shot shows the greyness of today.

They are rather striking aren't they. We live high upstairs now so I got these from my window. certainly brighten up the place when the sun is hiding.

Ah waxwings. I've had a thing for them ever since I was little & read a book about them. According to the book, they'll sit and pass berries down the line until they all get their fill. I always wondered if it was true. Did you witness anything? :)

Spiderbaby says:

These were all on a birch tree, so no berries there to pass along (if that's what they do). When I've seen them from the ground (them above me, with berries) it's hard to see what's going on as they seem to be constantly moving. The way they move suggests they could be taking turns, possibly? I'll have to look more closely. That's an interesting idea though.
