Reading difficulty

How can you choose an article that’s right for you?


We know not all of our readers are biology experts, so we designed a system for you to quickly choose the articles that fit your level.

At the beginning of each article, next to the title, you will find a symbol that indicates the difficulty depending on the topic and the terminology it uses.



If you’re new to the synthetic biology and biotechnology areas of science, we recommend you to start with the articles that have this symbol.



You could find some terms slightly challenging to understand, but if you have a little patience and time, you should give it a try!



These articles contain more specific terms and can be a bit confusing if you don’t have a science-related background. So if you’re completely new to biology, these ones are probably not the best to start with.



If you have any doubts, don’t hesitate to contact us!
