The new archaeo-DNA laboratory of the Department of Archaeology is a state of the art laboratory that meets the highest standards for ancient DNA work, including a positive air pressure system coupled with HEPA filters and five separate working areas to compartmentalise the different experimental steps. Ancient DNA can be a very powerful source of information in archaeology, and this laboratory will provide the clean environment necessary for the extraction and sequencing of DNA from archaeological samples, including human and animal skeletal remains, fossilized insects, sediments or ancient seeds and grains. This facility will complement, diversify and strengthen the research portfolio of the department while having a pivotal role in the teaching and training of future generations of archaeologists.
