As definitions go, a compendium is "a collection of concise but detailed information about a particular subject, especially in a book or other publication" (source).

As soon as the novel coronavirus pandemic exploded, the need arose for everyone to be able to tap into impartial, fact-based sources, and for these pertinent facts  to be laid out in a quick and convenient manner. 

For a long time, none of this happened.

Biocompendium was born as a place where information on the biology of relevant issues (Covid-19 related or not) can be handily retrieved, either in a more extensive form, for those who can spend a few minutes getting into the details of the matter, or in a quick, TL;DR way for those who simply want to get to the core of the issue.

My name is Ettore, I am a PhD candidate with expertise in biology and biotech, and I would like to invite you to take a look at what actual facts have to offer.

Life matters.
