SMBE satellite meeting on Ancient DNA
Updated: Oct 24, 2018
An SMBE satellite meeting on Modern Methods for the Study of Ancient DNA (www.smbeadna2018.com) brilliantly organised by Emilia Huerta-Sanchez and Sohini Ramachandran, although not organized by our network, gave some of us the opportunity to brainstorm and discuss the network before María went on maternity leave. The meeting highlighted recent methodological advances, but also importantly considered some of the ethical dilemmas now facing the field as the pace of sequencing ancient human genomes gathers.
