“Plagues, Populations & Survival”, Professor Stephen J O’Brien

The gold rush of whole genome sequences spurred by the human genome project, is heralding a new way to study the previously unanswerable from pre-history; allowing us to now mine the genomic footprints of ancient defining events of humankind and other mammals. As early paleontologists conjured up extinct forms based on fossil remains, genetic archaeologists reconstruct the origins of genomic patterns derived from ancient demographic episodes. (more…)

Development of center IT infrastructure

A wiki was started to facilitate exchange project progress, details on software, techniques (methods) and other information between members of the center. In plans

  • make some open access pages in wiki for discussion of center results and plans
  • use code repository for scripts and programs written by members of center
  • use project tracking techniques
