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...

with my new (old) hedgehog rolling pin :)
I cannot describe how satisfying it is to roll out the polar bread with this spiny thing. I really must find out its real name too.

I don't know what to say. I've been replaced in your affections by a rolling pin.

I didn't notice this stuff last time I was in Sweden. do you have to make it creme fraiche?

Spiderbaby says:

I use creme fraiche but a friend uses yogurt to good effect. Make of that what you will :)

Crickson, you know are irreplaceable to me and should take comfort that I do not use you to roll out the polar bread. Although when you are back I shall let you have a go because it is fun :)

I... have no idea what that is or why you would want it. It looks like a fake corn on the cob to me...

Ooooh, nice! As for the name, I like hedgehog rolling pin. As long as you aren't singing the hedgehog song while you're using it.
