Research in genetic analysis of newts now suggests that it evolved much more recently than commonly thought. Much of this research was conducted at the University of Dayton.

Social Networks in our DNA

January 2012

Sharing on social networks has become a part of everyday life — and it may even be part of our DNA, according to a University of Dayton biologist. The National Science Foundation this month awarded University of Dayton biology assistant professor Thomas Williams a three-year, $450,000 grant to study networks of genes and how these "social networks" evolve by establishing, changing or losing connections between them.
