Insights into early human migrations with modern and ancient genomic data

EVENT : C3BI Seminars

Main speaker : Anna-Sapfo Malaspinas, from Department of computational biology, Université de Lausanne
Date : 14-03-2019 at 02:00 pm
Location : Auditorium Francois Jacob – BIME (26) ,Institut Pasteur, Paris

Anna-Sapfo Malaspinas is assistant professor in the Department of computational biology of Université de Lausanne since 2017.
Her work aims to characterize evolutionary processes (genetic drift, natural selection, migration and mutation), using genomics data from both modern and ancient samples. Her group develops analytical and computational methods to analyse and interpret time-sampled data and applies those methods to novel ancient DNA datasets. Her work allows quantification and timing of adaptive and migration events, in particular in the context of human colonization of the world.
