Studying Human Evolution from Ancient DNA
Event date: May 17 - May 20, 2015
Liran Carmel (The Hebrew University)
Gila Kahila Bar-Gal (The Hebrew University)
Paleogenomics is an emerging field of studying DNA from ancient, archaeological and museum specimens such as bones, teeth, feces, hair, and skin. Rapid technological advances in recent years years have created an opportunity to sequence ancient DNA sequences at a quality that rivals that of modern samples.
These include archaic humans, domesticated animals and plants, and pathogens.
These achievements allow to recruit the powerful tools of genomic analysis to study recent human evolution at an unprecedented detail. This task requires combining many scientific disciplines including molecular evolution, physical anthropology, archaeology, paleontology, human anatomy, genetics, history, geography, and cognitive sciences. The intention of this workshop is to bring together researchers from all these disciplines, and encourage future collaborations in this field.
