Between 3-14 July, CitiGen members ran a summer school in archaeomics at the University of Copenhagen. The course was aimed at Masters and PhD students in history and archaeology, interested in the uses of genomic data as a means to study human population history. For more information on the course, visit the Natural History Museum of Denmark website.
CitiGen is an international research project that aims to study how modern and ancient genomic data are being used to shape public understandings of the past.
Headquartered at the Natural History Museum of Denmark, CitiGen involves academic partners from Iceland, Ireland, and the UK, as well as non-academic partners from the fields of genetic ancestry testing, family tree research, and public engagement with science.
The project is funded by the Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) Joint Research Programme “Uses of the Past”.
