Offer description:

Our line of research has focused on the study of the evolution of human populations through the comparison of the current population structure with genetic information obtained from archaeological material. We have a long expertise on protocols that would allow us to obtain DNA from forensic samples in an advanced state of degradation, especially those related to Historical Memory projects.
