A New Archaeology Initiative to Elucidate the Formation Process of Chinese Civilization

The paleogenomic studies workshop was held on Jul 27, 2022 (Wed.)

Title: From Ancient Substrates to Genomes
Time: Jul 27, 2022 01:30 PM Osaka, Sapporo, Tokyo
Meeting ID: 915 6079 1039  Passcode: 094997
Speaker: Valeria Mattiangeli (Trinity College, Dublin)
Dr. Mattiangeli has a degree in Zoology from the University of Milan and a PhD in Population Genetics from the National University of Ireland, Cork.
She has been working in Trinity College Dublin as a research fellow since 2003 and involved in a variety of projects including the identification of natural selection in the Irish population and bovine genes relevant in TB resistance/susceptibility. About 10 years ago, she started paleogenomics both in humans and domesticates. To date she has processed over 400 human ancient samples and over 200 ancient domesticates plus several unusual ancient substrates. As a senior researcher and a lab manager her central duties consist in updating protocols for ancient DNA, managing all NGS sequencing from our lab (Illumina platform), supervising undergraduate and Ph.D students and skill transfer to new researchers or collaborators.
