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 :)

Afternoon tea - Rhode Island Style!

For the full experience we had to have the afternoon tea and very nice it
was too. We sat in the breakfast conservatory of Blithewold Mansion. It's a
hard job but somebody's got to do it!

- In case you were wondering Alison is just a bit of a Red Sox fan :)

More from Blithewold. It's quite famous around here for its daffodils in the
The top one's of trout lillies (Erythronium americanum), they're tiny
little things, you can just see them in the undergrowth of the daffodils in
the 2nd shot. Can't remember what the bottom one is, but it's pretty (the
others are more daffs of some sort.
