Mapping The Neolithic Expansion In The Mediterranean: A Scientific Collective To Promote Archaeogenomics And Evolutionary Biology Research In Turkey

Project description

Promoting archaeogenomic partnerships in Turkey

An international scientific collective has been established to promote archaeogenomics and evolutionary biology research in Turkey. The goal of the EU-funded NEOMATRIX project is to establish the Ancient DNA Lab (MEAD) at the Middle East Technical University (METU) in Turkey, as a centre of excellence through partnerships with the first ancient DNA centre in Greece at the Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH), the Stockholm University’s Centre for Palaeogenetics, and the Palaeogenomics Lab at Institut Jacques Monod of the University of Paris and CNRS. Cross-lab visits, workshops and courses will provide further training for early-stage researchers, and communication activities will be organised to attract new researchers to the field. The common theme is the investigation of Neolithic expansion across the Mediterranean 8 millennia ago, which connected Anatolia with Europe.
