Collaborative Research

All of our research efforts strive to be collaborative, involving Utah anthropology faculty and graduate students, specialists in other fields whose expertise amplifies the inferences to be made from genetic data, and community members and leaders of indigenous groups who consult with the research team and provide permission to analyze the genetic variation of prehistoric human populations in their region. On many projects we collaborate with Dr. Joan Coltrain, a University of Utah bone chemist who provides stable isotope data for dietary and paleoenvironmental reconstructions, as well as preparing all aDNA samples for direct AMS 14C dating.


We also frequently provide replication studies, or assist colleagues in documenting aDNA preservation and variation, in samples from a variety of locations in the Americas and Europe.
