We describe our recent progress on the investigation of two-species Bose-Einstein condensation. From a theoretical analysis we show that there is a new rich phenomenology associated with two-species Bose-Einstein condensates which does not exist in a single-species condensate. We then describe results of a numerical model of the evaporative cooling process of a trapped two-species gas.
