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...

They are rather good, but all those vitamins are making me feel healthy.

paintist says:

OMG they look deadly ;-p ( what are the 'other natural flavors'?)

2nd Jun 2008, 16:33

Spiderbaby says:

according to the packet the natural flavour 'includes grape juice concentrate' but the colours are red 40, yellow 6, yellow 5 and blue 1 - no mention of 'natural' there...

From Wikipedia: E129 (allura red AC), E110 (sunset yellow), E102 (tartrazine) and E133 (brilliant blue FCF). Yum.

crickson says:

Brilliant blue FCF? Mmmm you're making me feel hungry again.

Spiderbaby says:

Are you sure Beth??? That's very brave of you! Will have to try to get some through customs somehow...

I can't believe it says 'natural' twice!

beth says:

i'm sure! I'm a big fan of blue food!

This is a stupid question, but do you pour milk over this cereal? Just the thought of grape juice concentrate and milk mixed together makes my stomach churn.

2nd Jun 2008, 23:34

Spiderbaby says:

Oh yes. Well I don't, they make me feel all shaky and weird and but Crickson has them with milk. Every day.

2nd Jun 2008, 23:48

That seems wrong on so many levels. Is it a good "shaky and weird" or a bad shaky and weird? I've managed to resist the fluorescent cereals so far...

Spiderbaby says:

Bad :( I can't handle Froot.

Dhamaka says:

OMG - more ..errr.... fruity things

3rd Jun 2008, 07:37

Spiderbaby says:

Viv I think he needs them now to keep him 'normal'...
