Teaching Guide

From Early Man to Homo sapiens

In 1997, Svante Pääbo succeeded in sequencing parts of the mitochondrial DNA of a Neanderthal. This teaching unit introduces the field of palaeogenetics, which focuses on the genetic analysis of historical and prehistoric genetic material from fossils, mummified organisms, archaeological remains and other samples. This ancient DNA, also known as aDNA, provides important insights into past life forms and evolution.
