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 :)

Ooh thanks for HL! It really was quite a steep drop. I like the bottom one best, suffering for his art :)

mysocalled - I believe the 'waves' form quite slowly. Lake Superior is fresh water and tidal, so as it cools the surface water starts to freeze and the tide kind of pushes and pulls the slush against the edge of the lake. As the waters at the edges freeze hard they are still being pushed by the tide against the land and so the ice buckles up into the frozen 'waves' and troughs you see here. I think that's kind of what happens.

It does look really weird.

I too like the bottom shot best. But you know how I feel about Crickson's bottom.

I am now waiting for Sprocket to ask how I feel Crickson's bottom

Oh yes, I know :) And so does he! :)
