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...

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

What's he making? That careful octagon makes me think it's not just firewood.

Top one looks like a cheesecake in my phone.

You're right facto, the big cheese bit is for being turned into a bowl. :) We were 'helping' Seri cut up bits of tree into smaller bits to go on her wood turning thing. Examples of finished articles can be seen here , she makes some really nice things. Seri specialises in spalting - where fungi interact with the wood to produce different colours and patterns. She's doing her PhD on it. There's lots more information on her website, it's really very interesting.

Joker - it does look a bit cheese-like, but considerably more high in fibre! :)

Yeah, a bit chewy at the edges, i'd say.

That wood turning thing is called a lathe. :P

The northernspalting link isn't working, but I'll check back another day. Seri, are you turning these pieces green?

why isn't t cake?

Spiderbaby says:

Facto - I'm sorry about the link, the address is: http://northernspalting.com/ :)

FF - because it weighs the same as a duck... and therefore is a witch! ... and therefore is made of wood.

Seri says:

I turn some green, others not. It depends on my mood and patience!
