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 :)

Today's experiment is kitchen based and involves muffins and savory stuff.

It's not that I am Anti-Pasta, but I do feel the need to put penne to paper and just say that cake and noodles are a no-no .....

Ah Maggie! You and your near-deadly punning... It's nice to see you back :)

swamprose - they are based on a recipe for rhubarb and strawberry muffins only without the rhubarb and strawberries and most of the sugar, instead adding feta cheese, olives, pepper and onion (both red and pre-fried in olive oil), a little pepper and some parsley as it was going spare. + noodly appendage-shaped grated cheddar-esque cheese on top in homage to his benificent noodliness. They still could do with something else to make them fully savoury though, but they looked proper fancy :)
