The Explorer’s Guide to Biology

The mission of The Explorer’s Guide to Biology (XBio) is to create a free learning resource that emphasizes the wonders of life and the problem-solving nature of science.

Many students approach biology with initial excitement but leave their course discouraged after memorizing a sea of facts. The wonder of science and the thrill of discovery are not being communicated. XBio’s audacious goal is to rethink biology education by offering students a more exciting and accurate window into the life sciences. In addition, we want to offer students a great learning experience for free, recognizing the financial burden imposed by textbook costs. The objective is to have students love life, science, and learning as much as we do.
