Upper Palaeolithic genomes reveal deep roots of modern Eurasians

Congratulations to all involved, including Professor Ron Pinhasi, UCD School of Archaeology, for the recent publication in Nature Communications of the paper that further explores European palaeogenomics .... The paper extends "the scope of European palaeogenomics by sequencing the genomes of Late Upper Palaeolithic (13,300 years old, 1.4-fold coverage) and Mesolithic (9,700 years old, 15.4-fold) males from western Georgia in the Caucasus and a Late Upper Palaeolithic (13,700 years old, 9.5-fold) male from Switzerland."
