OAGR update

October 31, 2015 | 0 Minute Read

After some personal travel commitments and technical issues, I've now been able to update the Online Ancient Genome Repository (OAGR) with some new genomes. Over the next few weeks we should be adding a few more, as the ancient DNA community continues to publish some new ancient human and microbiome data.

The brand new genome is a 7,400 year old Mediterranean Cardial individual (CB13) from Cova Bonica in Vallirana (Barcelona). The genome was produced in a study led by Carles Lalueza-Fox’s group at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (CSIC-Universitat Pompeu Fabra) Barcelona, Spain. As always you are now free to access all the raw, processed and analysed data by visiting the study section of OAGR

We’re still interested in getting more genomes in, so if you’re an ancient DNA researcher and would like to have your genome in the repository, please contact me or new ancient human genomics postdoc Stephen Goodswen, who will be taking over administration of the site.
