NSF grant funds research on evolution of social cooperation
Awarded a $696,634 National Science Foundation grant to study the evolution of cheating behaviors, University of Houston researchers will study amoebae to determine how organisms can work together as a community, even when only some individuals stand to benefit from this cooperation. The team will collect samples from more than 100 locations throughout the eastern US and look at their genetic makeup to understand how Dicty adapts to the presence of cheaters.
