Welcome to the Palaeo-Barn, the home of the Wellcome Trust Palaeogenomics & Bio-Archaeology Research Network at Oxford University.
Our modus operandi involves combining the resolution afforded by DNA sequences and fine-scale morphological variation with the time depth of archaeology and palaeontology.
Doing so allows us to establish the patterns of DNA and morphological variance through time and space. We then take advantage of a range of bioinformatic approaches to answer long-standing questions related to how, when, and where evolutionary processes (including domestication) took place that have led to the creation of the modern world.
