Hi! Welcome to BioBites! We, Lucy Q and Lucy K, are two biology Ph.D students who love to read about random cool science. We also love to tell others about it (whether they want to hear about it or not), so we thought we’d tell even more people by writing a blog. So that’s what you’ll find here: random cool science stories, written for the non-scientist. We’ll also talk about what it’s like to be a grad student (far from glamorous) and some of the animals scientists study and why. We hope you enjoy it! We’ll be posting every Monday. And if you have any questions please leave a comment or send an email to biobites at gmail dot com!
