Archeogenetics and Evolution Centre

Organization profile

Profile Information

Evolutionary genetics has undergone a huge shift since 2005, due to new DNA sequencing technologies. Next generation sequencing has contributed enormously to our understanding of not only the human past (in archaeogenetics) but to the evolutionary history of life on earth more broadly. The Research Centre includes scientists with diverse interests ranging from forensic archaeology and entomology to molecular ecology and adaptation, from origins of animals to the evolution of horizontal transfer, and from evolutionary cell biology to prehistoric human migrations and domestication. Specific areas of interest include:

  • Whole mitochondria DNA genome analysis
  • Y chromosome and genome wide markers
  • Phylogeographic distribution of modern and ancient genetic variation in humans and animals
  • Eukaryotic evolution
  • Ecological genomics ad evolution
