#### Abstract

We determine the evolution from $z=3\to 0$ of the galaxy and mass correlation functions and bias factor in a $50h^{-1}$Mpc $\Lambda$CDM hydrodynamic simulation with $10h^{-1}$kpc resolution. The mass correlation function grows with time, but the galaxy correlation function shows little evolution and is well described by a power law. At early times, galaxies are biased traces of mass, with bias being higher on smaller scales. By z=0, galaxies trace the mass, and the bias shows little scale dependence.
