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 :)

learning new ropes

(viewed 916 times)
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...

Broadening our horizons

With each trip into town we make it a little further west.

Where Moomins are mainstream...

(viewed 1092 times)
Umea. Where the rubber ducks are as big as your head (pity we don't have a bath any more), Moomin films are always on at the theatre schedule, and space invaders share the street with tiny, forlorn snowmen.

Yay Moomins!

Scattered showers of snow and waxwings

Snow came and went this morning, but the waxwings are sticking for now.

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.

Mr Icelandic

Now, if I can just find these in Swedish, and read them side by side with my English versions I might just start getting somewhere...

What a difference a day makes

This morning we had snow! And only 2 power cuts... Must buy matches and more candles!
