Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

We currently live in a golden age for biomolecular-based discoveries in human evolution. From the development of ancient genomics to palaeoproteomics, to the recovery of ancient microbiomes and pathogens, coupled with exciting advances in chronometric studies, the last two decades have seen the discovery of several new human species for the last 1 million years.
In this lecture series we will review some of the most important scientific (biomolecular) methods used in the field of Human Evolution, and discuss significant new discoveries made using these tools.
The series is structured as weekly lectures with selected experts from the Department of Evolutionary Anthropology presenting on the basics of their methods but also on the latest developments on each field.
