The only biology that has proceeded in the light of evolutionary paradigm is evolutionary biology itself :

How many times have we heard that we need to understand biology in the light of evolutionary paradigm ? How many times have we heard that understanding the biology of complex living organisms through an evolutionary mindset has led to many medical breadthrough's ? And claims of a similar standing in an attempt to claim that The evolutionary paradigm is making sense of our world .
Well it seems to me that those who are in the know are not in agreement with those who are claiming the above .
Dr Marc Kirschner, chair of the Department of Systems Biology, Harvard Medical School, stated: “In fact, over the last 100 years, almost all of biology has proceeded independent of evolution, except evolutionary biology itself. Molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, have not taken evolution into account at all.”
