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 :)

Please help reform English libel laws. As they stand, they are a threat to journalists, bloggers and scientists (not just science ducks) the world over - wherever anything is published in English.

Please go to libel law reform petition for more information and to sign.

Thank you!
(I will now release the ducks)

Fantastic shot! (Great hostages too.) I have an appeal up as well. :)

Yes, I just saw yours now! Great stuff. Hope it gets a few more signatures, then hope someone who can influence these things pays attention...

Caine says:

:) I have hope for this petition; something has to be done to get attention. The law is simply absurd.

I'm starting to feel sorry for those rubber duckies... if only they were allowed free speech.
