Bioscientists can be verbose, and a protein science novice like me gravitated towards Bitesize Bio by helping me grasp the knowledge that I needed to be a successful (and sane) research technician and to satisfy my curiosity. The genuine advice I read from Bitesize Bio essentially paved the way my pursuit to obtain a Ph.D. degree in biochemistry and molecular pharmacology (2018 pending). I continue to read articles from Bitesize Bio. I am extremely excited to be a Bitesize Bio contributor!
