Towards a comprehension of early animal domestication through ancient DNA

Start: Mar 04, 2013 04:00 PM

Location: Room 612, Institute of Archaeology

Dr Greger Larson

Greger Larson (Durham University) will give the sixth seminar in the Term II Institute Research Seminar series on ancient DNA at the Institute on 4 March.

The Term II Institute Research Seminar series looking at the field of ancient DNA is being organised by Mark Thomas (UCL Genetics, Evolution and Environment) and coincides with the launch of a new ancient DNA Laboratory facility at the Institute.

Greger Larson received a Masters in Archaeology and a PhD in Evolutionary Biology from Oxford University. He then spent 2 years as an EMBO postdoctoral fellow in Uppsala, Sweden, working on functional genomics before starting an RCUK Fellowship at the Department of Archaeology at Durham University where he is now a Reader. Greger claims to be a jack of many archaeological and genetic trades, and is still seeking mastery.

The seminar will be followed by a reception in the Institute's Staff Common Room (Room 609).

Any enquiries about the Ancient DNA seminar series may be directed to Mark Thomas.
