Ancient genomes: Inferring phenotypes and population histories

Short description of the research team

Thematic fields of interest/research areas: Ancient genomes: Inferring phenotypes and population histories
(Key words: Population genetics, Evolution, Human evolution, Bioinformatics, Palaeogenomics)

Manager/head of the team: Guido Barbujani

Team members: Gloria Gonzalez Fortes, Patricia Santos


Research infrastructures:

Our laboratory has the computers, the software, and the expertise for all bionformatic analyses and for testing evolutionary hypotheses, as well as direct contact with genotyping facilities. We are part of an international network of labs collaborating in the reconstruction of human evolutionary history, including palaeonthologists, archaeologists, anthropologists, linguists, and of course experts in genomics and ancient DNA.
