In this paper, we explore the relationship between the braid group and evolution algebras. First, we explore the braid group and how it is constructed. Next we discuss the Burau representation, and its relationship with free differential calculus and Magnus representations. Finally we use the Burau representation to create a new representation from the braid group directly to evolution algebras.
