GeoGenetics – University of Copenhagen

Centre for GeoGenetics - a multidisciplinary Centre of Excellence

A centre with a research portfolio from ancient DNA, environmental DNA and human evolution to disease association and animal domestication

Ancient DNA is the red thread which connects many of Centre for GeoGenetics' core research activities. In our projects around the globe we collaborate with a wide range of professionals like archaeologists, anthropologists, medical doctors, geologists as well as people with the same background as ourselves: geneticists and bioinformaticians.

We use whole-genome sequencing to extract the maximum information from our study samples: from genomes to epigenomes, pathogens and environmental metagenomes.
