Research Themes

How have demographic, cultural, and environmental factors contributed over time to shaping the genetic profiles of present-day human populations? In order to address specific research questions embedded within this overarching goal, we use a combined approach that brings together genome-scale data from present-day and ancient humans and their biotic environment, especially domesticates and pathogens. The primary research themes are listed below; watch this space for descriptions of specific projects as they develop!
