Abstract

Understanding evolution is crucial to modern biology,but most teachers would assume that practical demonstrations of evolution in school laboratories are unfeasible. However, perhaps they have not heard of ‘evolution in a test tube’ and how Wrinkly Spreaders can form the basis for both practical demonstrations of bacterial evolution and further work.
