The ability to extract DNA from ancient fragments of biological
material has revolutionized our understanding of recent
evolutionary history, including human evolution and phylogeography.
Analysis of ancient DNA in tandem with radiocarbon dating, along
with traditional archeological techniques, has led to a flurry of
discoveries. With us to discuss this research is Maanasa Raghavan.
