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.
Alex Broussard teaches biology at Durham Technical Community College in Durham, NC. He has explored the yEvo system for both directed evolution projects and chemical methods of pigment isolation.
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.
