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 :)

potted art

Last night we went to the opening of the South County Art Association
"Earthworks" annual clay exhibition in Helme House (near URI, Kingston RI).
Our landlady is a potter and her first ever teapot (picture 1) made it into the show, so
it was really nice to go along and see. The work on show was all really
interesting and beautifully done (and the refreshments were good too :) ).

Here's a selection of some of the things on display.
1. First Teapot B by Jeanne Wetlaufer
2. Blue Iron by Betsy Cameron Fine
3. Dogmandu by Jillian Barber
4. Garudasana, (The Eagle) Yoga by Rodie Siegler
5. Untitled by Tiffany Adams
6. Wabi Sabi by Linda Wright Minisce

More to follow soon :)

3 has definite overtones of Jeff Koons' "Puppy". Which is no bad thing.

It was a really good show. We're in grave danger of getting all arty over here :)

OK, well I like them all, but my favourites are 4 and 6 ...

Number 6 was very striking. Our landlady is a potter and she says the squirly lines are made by wrapping wires around the pot during a smoke firing process, like the wires from a dismantled pot scourer or bunches of cables. It's all very clever!
