Discuss: Archaeogenetics - The Past in Our Genes
« on: 27/04/2010 17:46:36 »
We explore the marriage of archaeology and genetics in this week's Naked Scientists, finding out how modern genetic techniques are helping to reveal more about our past.  We ask what archaeogenetics can tell us about human origins and migration as well as the diseases that evolved alongside us.  We explore the genome of a 4000 year old man, which tells us he had dry earwax!  Also, new data that could help to predict the Asian monsoon, why dreams help you to remember and how it feels to be a pill - after you've been swallowed.  Plus, why many of us might have a little bit of Neanderthal in our genes!
