DNA from ancient remains such as this skull (in center) of a 5,000 year-old dog unearthed from a burial cave in Germany in 2010 are helping scientists better understand the origin and evolution of dogs. By sequencing the whole genome of DNA from the skull, Stony Brook Assistant Professor of Ecology & Evolution  in the  College of Arts & Sciences Krishna Veeramah and colleagues suggest that dog domestication occurred 20,000 to 40,000 years ago from a single wolf population. Findings will be reported in Nature Communications.
