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 Stuart Hall High School in San Francisco, CA. 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
Bryce Taylor collaborated with the first yEvo classrooms as a postdoc in the Dunham Lab. He will continue to study yeast evolution in his lab at Loras College.
