I’m Rachel, I’m 23 and I study Biology at a university in Massachusetts. There is an abundance of information that I’m working to wrap my mind around, and the more progress I make the bigger the pile grows. I have been thinking that it would do me well to catalog my projects and explorations, biology-related and otherwise.

What’s the goal?

Scientific primary literature is inventive and exciting and yet incredibly dense. This is by design – it is written by experts for experts, which adds requisite background knowledge. But it’s that background knowledge that I’m after, so chasing a morsel of understanding down a rabbit hole of clarification seems worthwhile. Perhaps outlining that process will help someone else learn, too!
