Evolutionary developmental biology

Evolutionary developmental biology (often referred to as 'evo-devo' or evolution of development) is a field of biology that compares the developmental processes of different animals in an attempt to determine the ancestral relationship between organisms and how developmental processes evolved. The discovery of genes regulating development in model organisms allowed for comparisons to be made with genes and genetic networks of related organisms.
