You may have been wondering what became of my quest to do an evolution-themed story for Grow. I'm sorry I wasn't able to update you before now -- things got kind of hectic there with all of the changes going on around CALS. Anyway, I did write a 3-story package on evolution themes. The main story is focused on agriculture, and there are two sidebars on Sean's evo-devo work and on Audrey Gasch and Bret Payseur. I didn't get the chance to talk about the Crow Institute as things were still evolving (so to speak) about the institute by the time I had to file my story. But we will revisit it again, I'm sure.
Anyway, it was a challenge to pick from among the great possible angles on this one. I hope you think I did a decent job capturing at least some of the excitement.
