Recovering and Characterising DNA from Museum Specimens
Professor Ian Barnes, Vertebrates and Anthropology, Department of Earth Sciences
Natural History Museum London
Professor Ian Barnes is a highly regarded evolutionary biologist who conducts his research from London's Natural History Museum. Ian's focus area of research is molecular evolutionary biology, where he uses modern and ancient DNA from archaeological and paleontological materials, together with protein and isotope data, to understand how organisms adapt and react to changes in their environment.
Ian will be giving a facinating and highly relevant seminar on the methods behind the recovery and characterisation of DNA from museum specimens.
We look forward to seeing you there!
