    Is there info about the Megiddo site? And the one in Jordan that Reich brought up (don't know how to spell it)?

    Human Evolution: Fossils, Ancient and Modern Genomes - NEW

    20-22 November 2017

    Hinxton, Cambridge, UK

    Bursary deadline: 12 September | Abstract Deadline: 26 September | Registration Deadline: 24 October

    This new conference will celebrate the maturity of the ancient DNA field. The meeting will bring together genomic specialists, palaeontologists, archaeologists, primatologists, medical geneticists and other researchers interested in human evolution.

    The combination of genome sequencing tools, recent archaeological and palaeontological discoveries is reshaping our understanding of both human evolution and history. This meeting will highlight the emerging archaeological discoveries and advances in ancient DNA methods that are transforming the field. For example, we will explore the use of genomic tools and large-scale analysis of ancient nuclear DNA to deciphering population mixing, complex migration patterns and the role of adaptive introgression in human evolution. The meeting will also include discussions of current developments and challenges of characterising the evolution and changing ecology of the human microbiome and the use of non-humans such as apes and other model species to learn about our own evolution.

    We encourage participation from researchers and specialists interested in disseminating and learning the latest cutting-edge advances in sample analysis, genomic techniques and analytical tools used to study human evolution.

    The conference will start at approximately 12.30 on Monday, 20 November and close at approximately 14.00 on Wednesay, 22 November 2017.

    Scientific topics include

    Ancient DNA advances and emerging archaeological discoveries
    Large-scale analysis of ancient nuclear DNA
    Origins of modern humans and the importance of Africa
    Migration of modern humans from Africa into East Asia and the Americas
    Archaic introgression
    Human microbiome evolution
    Apes and other model species
    Human evolution, adaptation and disease

    A draft programme will be available shortly.

    I am quite familiar with this paper - hence my signature ;-). If you are interested in this... then there are a couple documentaries you can watch - though they may be hard to find. One called Gladiators: Back from the Dead was available on youtube, but I can't find it anymore. A new one is called Secrets: Headless Gladiators of York shown on the Smithsonian Channel in the states, and as Ancient Mysteries in the Isles I think - I have not been able to watch this new one as I stream my TV... I guess I have to wait to see it!!!

    Because the sample for aDNA extraction was very small and thus yielded a very low DNA concentration, the library consequently required an excessive number of PCR-cycles to become sequencable. This resulted in two observations when the amplified and purified library was profiled on an Agilent Bioanalyzer 2100: 1) A very high concentration of adapter dimer, making it inefficient to sequence with Next Generation Sequencing technology and 2) PCR products in the negative extraction control with similar length distribution and concentration such as in the DNA library from the hair sample. For these reasons, we decided not to perform further aDNA analyses.
    ...
    Although the acidic environment within the oak-coffin, in which the Skrydstrup Woman was burried, unfortunately prevented the preservation of human aDNA...
    There was a National Geographic program titled "Bog Bodies" last night (Monday, June 5). The aDNA part, late in the program, also dealt with a female specimen, although IIRC it was one discovered in Ireland about 2003. I may be mistaken about that, I was watching around 1 AM. The program also discussed a Danish female bog body, for which the story (and reenactment) involved ritual that included staking the elbows of her naked body to the bog bottom, but leaving her woven cloak beside her -- no "oak coffin" was mentioned. Anyway the scientist interviewed said that they did successfully recover (evidently nuclear) aDNA, but its deterioration meant that the segments recovered and analyzed with NGS returned such short reads, they were unable to be entirely certain which chromosome the segments came from. He expressed the hope that rapidly improving technology and methods might yet make it possible to get useful aDNA reads from some bog bodies in the near future.

    I wondered whether timing of releasing the paper from Denmark was affected by the air date for the NatGeo program.

    You could ask him if that's what he meant.
