Sean B. Carroll is Professor of Molecular Biology and Genetics and an Investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at the University of Wisconsin. Carroll is a member of the National Academy of Sciences. His research has centered on the genes that control animal body patterns and play major roles in the evolution of animal diversity.

He is the author of Remarkable Creatures: Epic Adventures in the Search for the Origin of Species (2009), Endless Forms Most Beautiful: The New Science of Evo Devo (2005) and The Making of the Fittest: DNA and the Ultimate Forensic Record of Evolution (2006). The former is about how random variations within and between species of animals are possible, genetically and developmentally. The latter is about the natural selection of these variations. Only those variations that make the organism fitter will be preserved in evolution; the rest disappear.

With V2_, Carroll published The Genes and Switches for Animal Forms in Interact or Die! (2007).
