The Nature Milestones in Genomic Sequencing project caught up with Beth Shapiro, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at UC Santa Cruz, to hear about the impact of genomic sequencing on the field of ancient DNA research.

From Nature’s post on YouTube:

The past two decades have witnessed extraordinary technological and computational advances in nucleic acid sequencing. Working with ancient DNA, Beth Shapiro has applied next-generation sequencing to look into genomes of the distant past, with the hope that they can help us to understand our future. The Nature Milestones in Genomic Sequencing project caught up with Beth to hear about the impact of genomic sequencing on the field of ancient DNA research.
