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 :)

The wrong side of the Falls

From our trip back from Michigan to Rhode Island, via Canada. We missed the Canadian side. The SatNav lady sent us straight to the border guards where I was interrogated and mightily told off for I still don't what, before being allowed on our way. This is from the American side. It was a bit cold.

Thanks for HL! It was a stunning sight so difficult to take a bad shot really.

Swamprose - I don't think I'd dare cross the border at Niagra again, the border guards were seriously unpleasant. We'd love to come again though, so will have to go another the long way round.

Er, yes, and Crickson took the last one (he has longer arms than me) :)

These are amazing.....it's some place, isn't it? I had immigration problems myself at that very spot 9 years ago. I crossed from the Canadian side to the US side for an hour but when I came home to the UK, the US authorities thought I'd been there for 7 months! Made getting back into the US again very difficult!
