A comprehensive study of star-forming galaxies (SFGs) at z=2-6 using ground-based spectroscopy and multi-wavelength photometry is vital for understanding physical processes that govern star formation and galaxy assembly at these cosmic epochs. Until now, such studies were limited by small samples because of the lack of large area, deep spectroscopic observations at high redshifts. The extensive ground-based spectroscopy campaign from the VIMOS Ultra-Deep Survey (VUDS), and the deep multi-wavelength photometry in three very well observed extragalactic fields (ECDFS, COSMOS, VVDS), allow us to investigate physical properties of a large sample (~5000 galaxies) of spectroscopically confirmed SFGs at z=2-6. We will present results from our study of Lyα emitters and non-emitters at 2
