Institute for Genomic Biology Nabs $3M to Explore Genomic Networks Involved in Social Behavior | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A multidisciplinary team of researchers at the Institute for Genomic Biology, a University of Illinois research center, will use $3 million in funding from the Simons Foundation to search for the genetic foundations of social behavior across varying species, IGB said today.

The researchers aim to find out if genes that have been conserved in different animals may influence behavior, and to understand how brains produce social behavior and are impacted by social stimuli at the genomic level.
