This new exhibit aims to educate the public about the emerging science of evolutionary developmental biology, commonly shortened to “evo devo”. Dan Medeiros, Ph.D., a researcher who focuses on evo devo here at the University of Colorado, explains “Evo Devo tries to understand a fundamental question – how does evolution create new things? How do this force of nature, shaping life on the planet, work at fundamental levels?”
