Ancient Roman DNA project

By Razib Khan | November 1, 2011 3:48 pm

Dienekes already mentioned it, but readers might be curious about the Ancient Roman DNA Project. Here are the details:

I’m asking for $6,000 for this project, which will cover the cost of testing DNA from the 20 immigrants to Rome I found in my previous project. Of course, I would love to test additional individuals but recognize that testing the 100+ skeletons I have sampled is out of the realm of possibility. Still, any additional funding over the $6,000 goal will be put to good use: analyzing DNA from more Romans! Be a part of the #SciFund Challenge and help me bring science to ancient Rome!
