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 :)

Back, back into the mists of time....

Just been having a play with the 'Devolve Me' tool.

It's by the Open University and I got to it from the BBC's Darwin 200th anniversary special set of web pages. You can watch yourself (or your friends/family/anyone really) 'devolving' to earlier stages in human evolution. Great fun :) There's loads of really good programs too.

It's so nice to have a zoom, I don't have to get so close to the whirring blades anymore!

Artist at work

Seri makes a block for turning into a bowl. Many examples of finished articles can be found here
They are very pretty :)

Crickson's chainsaw adventure

Under instruction from Seri :)
Seri is an artist who uses fungus to create pretty patterns in wood, then makes bowls and stuff out of it among other things. She makes some really nice stuff - for more information see Seri's website - Northern Spalting
Chainsawing was strangely satisfying, especially in the freezing cold :)
