Insights into human migration from admixture signals from ancient genomes

Department of Evolutionaly Genetics, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology. Leipzig, Germany

Stoneking, from the Department of Evolutionary Genetics at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, is using molecular genetics to investigate questions concerning the origin, relationships, history, structure and migration patterns of human populations. He analyzes variation in mitochondrial DNA, Y-chromosome DNA and autosomal DNA in both contemporary populations and ancient specimens. Current projects in his lab include the inference of mitochondrial heteroplasmy, the detection of positive selection and the genetic diversity in Oceanian populations. He has been invited by Elena Bosch and Johannes Engelken (UPF).
