yEvo Lab

yEvo is an authentic research experience designed for high school students to observe the process of evolution in their classrooms using yeast as a model organism.

We use a franchise model so each classroom can tailor our modules to their specific curricula, and select the right level of involvement with our research laboratories for their needs.
