Sampling in biomolecular archaeology


A small workshop 'Optimising Sampling in Biomolecular Archaeology' was held at the Wellcome Trust, organised by Carl Heron, Philipp Stockhammer and Matthew Collins

New developments and applications in biomolecular archaeology continue to demonstrate the importance and impact of this area to the study of the past. One challenge is to explore methods for minimising sample destruction whilst maximising data generation by integrating analyses into a suitable workflow. As the range of approaches for accessing biomolecular, genetic, isotopic and microfossil information from diverse sample types increases, it is incumbent on the research community to review the methods employed and to evaluate their efficacy.
