Biopatrika is a volunteer-run science communication platform focusing on different aspects of Indian Science. As we enter the tech era where there is a lot of scientific jargon not easily understood by everyone. More than ever, there is a need for science enthusiasts to participate in the programs involved in disseminating information in layperson language. We aim to fill this gap by bringing young researchers, science illustrators, content writers together to bring the simplified version of recent discoveries and career stories. To achieve this aim we interview researchers, scientists and entrepreneurs to communicate their stories and ideas behind what they do and how their work affects society. Biopatrika aims to provide due credit to researchers for their hard work and provide a glimpse of career journeys to motivate young generations.

We aim to bring new science communication initiatives and we need your support to achieve collective aim.

Project: Story book on Model systems in Science

Aim: We aim to create a story book on the model systems used in Science. There are different model systems used in Science particularly biology to understand different aspects of science and disease. This story book will present the simplified version of scientific information that a layperson including school children easily understand. The writing part will be supported by illustrations. This book is not meant to be another review article but a simplified handbook for any-person to refer.

Approach: To achieve this aim, we will create a team of volunteer content writers and illustrators. Each team of writers and illustrators will work on one model system.

If you are someone who is interested in science communication and want to support Biopatrika on its mission to connect science with society, this opportunity is for you.
