Toward a new history and geography of human genes informed by ancient DNA

Trends in Genetics : TIG

Joseph K Pickrell, David Reich

Abstract

Genetic information contains a record of the history of our species, and technological advances have transformed our ability to access this record. Many studies have used genome-wide data from populations today to learn about the peopling of the globe and subsequent adaptation to local ...read more

Ancient DNA

Ancient DNA sequences are able to offer valuable insights into molecular evolutionary processes, but are notoriously difficult to analyze due to molecular damage and exogenous dna contamination. Discover the latest research on Ancient DNA here.

Frontal Lobe Epilepsy

Frontal lobe epilepsy is characterized by brief, recurring seizures, often during sleep. Depending on the areas of the brain that are affected, these seizures may be asymptomatic or present with motor or verbal symptoms. Find the latest research on frontal lobe epilepsy here.
