Hello World from the lab!

Part spider - part lab monkey, will do science for cash, strawberries, or for a place to be that's out of the rain (but preferably for cash).

The rest of what I get up to goes into the Tunnel of Goats :)

Urgent Science Stuff:

Please help reform English libel law
Current UK libel laws are very bad for science and free speech.

Cool science stuff:

RCSB Protein data bank: Molecule of the Month in alphabetical order

The PCR Song It's the little things that keep you going...

NCBI's Entrez Gene My favourite starting point for finding out what is known about any gene of interest.

NCBI's PubMed Where to go to find pretty much all research published in the last 30 years or so (may go back a lot further now). All newly published research is quickly added to the site.

The Genetic Code - table of the DNA/RNA triplet codes for amino acids. This is how DNA codes for protein.

Another PCR song Disco frenzy :)

Well, western blotting anyway. Ponceau staining says the protein has separated out nicely on the gel and has transfered to the membrane OK. A couple of small air bubbles letting me down but nothing major. Now it just needs incubating with primary antibody, washing, incubating with secondary antibody (linked to a detection substance), then detection to see what's where and if there's anything interesting going on.

This is the pretty bit :)
*edit* Unfortunately the camera doesn't like to focus on it for some reason. It's a lot clearer to the naked eye, honest!
