yEvo uses a franchise model so you can take ownership of your experiments.
The yEvo community relies on both classrooms and university research labs. Local research labs act as hubs to work with their local schools, and partner closely on experiment design tied to their combined interests.
Our high school educators
Alex Broussard teaches biology at Green Level High School in Cary, NC. He has explored the yEvo system with IB biology students for both directed evolution projects and chemical methods of pigment isolation.
Tim Renz teaches Intro to Biotechnology, Advanced Biomedical Sciences, and Human Anatomy at Tukwila High School, WA. He studies yeast evolution in industrial settings.
Ryan Skophammer teaches biology at Westridge School for Girls in Pasadena, CA. He began yEvo for his AP biology students to carry out a long-term research project.
Our university laboratories
Chantle Swichkow studies the mutualism between yeast and bacteria in fermentation in the Kruglyak lab at UCLA.
