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 :)

Nightshade in the early evening sun

In the medicinal garden out behind where I work. It's the best place to take your cup of tea, watch the ants and plan what to do next.

While Crickson's away I will be mostly...

Counting crabs

We went to count horseshoe crabs as part of a survey for Save The Bay on the 20th June (and again this morning).

1. Optimistic
2. Tracks and Signs
3. But where are the crabs now?
4. No crabs within our quadrats :(
5. Evidence of moulting

We saw one small male, but he was outside of our sampling area so could not be included in the count. I made a note of him though.

This morning we didn't even see any tracks on the sand. Hope that means that their breeding season is over and they are all safely out at sea and not all harvested up for fish bait.
