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 :)

He's a bit of a lumpy mutant but Crickson loves him, and that's the main thing.

Oh my word! ( possibly the result of a '60's anti morning sickness drug combined with a certain male with a 19th century congenital defect ) .... but yes, cute, creppy cute :)

Here's the link to his maker's manual. It turns out this book is not really aimed at complete beginners like me (hence the lumpy monster) but it sure is inspiring, and there are helpful tutorials on needlenoodles.com.

Oh that's rather nice. Have you seen that book on how to make your own zombies? I'm trying to remember though if it was using crochet or felt or something else altogether. It was rather cool but not quite right for the person I was shopping for, so I went for Zakka sewing instead. Now that was awesome.

I think this probably is the book on how to make your own zombies, or certainly one of them anyway. Who knew there was so much call for wooly incarnations of the undead (if an incarnation can be wooly...). Zakka sewing? Oh dear, I am going to have to look at things on Amazon again :)
