Palaeogenomic / Biostatistical analysis of ancient DNA data from Mesolithic and Neolithic skeletal remains
Zuzana Fajkošová received her B.S. in Anthropology from Masaryk University in Brno, and Master's degree in Anthropology and Genetics from Charles University in Prague. She is working with Joachim Burger to analyze ancient DNA from the bones of the last hunter-gatherers and the first settled farmers in the region between western Anatolia and the Balkans using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). Zuzana is particularly interested in applying the latest biomolecular and computational techniques to the unique analytical problems posed by ancient DNA. Zuzana's broader academic interests include using palaeogenomic data to reconstruct the settlement of Europe, and modern programming methods for biologists.
