Georgia State researcher gets $499,209 NSF grant to advance sociogenomics
Date:9/24/2013

ommunicate and coordinate their research.

Wilczynski's network, known as the Sociogenomics Initiative RCN, will bring together researchers, faculty and students from several prominent universities across the U.S. and Canada who are focused on the genomic mechanisms underlying social behavior. Other institutions represented are: Colorado State University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Duke University, Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Harvard University, Hutchinson Research Center, Johns Hopkins University, Indiana University, Iowa State University, Morehouse College, North Carolina State University, Penn State University, Stanford University, the University of Illinois, the University of Texas, the University of Toronto and the University of Virginia.

"Developing comprehensive knowledge of social behavior in molecular terms requires large-scale collaboration and multidisciplinary approaches," Wilczynski said. "Additionally, sustaining progress in this complex area of biology requires integrating the research with student training. Ongoing structured interaction among network members will provide the scale and analytical power necessary to achieve a transformation in the understanding of social behavior's molecular basis."

The network's goals are to establish and sustain a consortium of researchers who will advance the field of sociogenomics through collaborations, data sharing and technical development. Another is to extend interest in sociogenomics to a broader range of researchers in numerous fields. The third is to link the network's research functions to educational initiatives. These goals will be accomplished through cohesive activities such as hosting an annual sociogenomics international meeting, supporting exchanges between labs, conducting workshops and maintaining a network website.
