Big Bio was formed by UCLA PhD students and postdoctoral scholars in order to provide training to a wider range of student researchers. A major limiting factor in the number of mentors available to undergraduates and other inexperienced researchers is the difficulty of gaining the breadth and depth of knowledge necessary to understand research and contribute to projects. By providing online tutorials on a number of biological concepts (with a current focus on genomic research due to our backgrounds), we hope to help students and mentors overcome this steep learning curve.
