Bik Lab at UC Riverside!Welcome to the
Lab Mission Statement:
- To perform cutting-edge research at the interface of biological and computational sciences; being leaders in the field of ecological and evolutionary -Omics approaches focused on microbial eukaryotes in marine sediments (with an emphasis on free-living nematodes and deep-sea habitats).
- To ensure that all lab members become well-rounded scientists with sufficient training and expertise that will allow them to succeed in their chosen career path. This will be accomplished by professional development that focuses on: effective written, verbal and visual communication skills; bioinformatics and programming skills; experience in project managment; scientific outreach and education; fostering relationships with policymakers and stakeholders.
Core Values: Exploring innovative and cross-discipinary science, creativity, teamwork, research excellence, practicing open science, communicating our technical knowledge and scientific results to non-scientists
This github repo is a compilation of valuable resources for new Bik lab members. Our lab utilizes -omics and computational biology approaches to study the microbial eukaryote biodiversity and evolution in marine environments and other ecosystems.
Below is a short list of tutorials we recommend you review to get comfortable with nagivating the Linux environment.
Introduction to (meta)genomics and more
- Our lab utilized the -omics approch to study the meiofaunal biodiversity that exists in marine environments and other ecosystems. We highly recommend watching a series of tutorial

Download a nice text editor
- NEVER edit your commands in Word. Download a text editor where you can type, edit, comment, etc. your commands. We like BBEdit.
