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...

Having finished my latest project ahead of time, and, due to bad planning, being without circular hat knitting needles I am finally working out the rules of crochet by a process of elimination. I think I have a little way to go...

It's pretty easy once you get the hang of the basics. I've managed to teach myself and I only knew the sheer basics when I started.

Thanks everyone! This is the furthest I've ever got, but my knitting needles have come back to me so I'll have to make a special effort to come back to this little project. I know it'll be worth it in the long run.

I use crochet for all those things that require circular knitting cause I suck at circular knitting.

I love circular knitting! You just go round and round and round for ever. But then I only make tubes :) I think I begin to see the possibilities of crochet.
