Pontus Skoglund Lab

What would you do if you could travel back in time? In the field of human population genomics, that is the question we are now asking ourselves, since ancient DNA technology has made it possible to trace evolution—genetic change through time—directly. This starting to bring about a new era of genomics that promises to revolutionize our view of many species, and as we are usually prone to, we have started with ourselves. Pontus Skoglund's laboratory at the Francis Crick Institute is committed to applying and developing ancient genomics to understand past human diversity, focusing on central evolutionary episodes and their impact on human societies and health.
