I will discuss how we constrain properties of the universe using two

tracers of large scale structure measured by the BOSS (Baryon

Oscillations Spectroscopic Experiment): galaxies and Lyman-alpha

forest. I will show recent results from baryonic acoustic oscillations

measured in both tracers and discuss cosmological implications. I

will briefly mention other measurements and consider forecasts for

quasar-forest bispectrum to constrain primordial non-Gaussianity.
