Ancient DNA from an Early Neolithic Iberian population supports a pioneer colonization by first farmers
The Neolithic transition has been widely debated particularly regarding the extent to which this revolution implied a demographic expansion from the Near East. We attempted to shed some light on thisExpand

Novel perspectives in wood certification and forensics: dry wood as a source of DNA
The importance of wood for human societies can hardly be understated. If dry wood were amenable to molecular genetic investigations, this could lead to major applications in wood forensics,Expand

Use of chloroplast microsatellites to differentiate oak populations
The possibility to use chloroplast microsatellites (cpSSRs) instead of restriction analysis of PCR-amplified DNA fragments to differentiate oak populations was tested in two economically importantExpand

Analysis of ancient human DNA and primer contamination: one step backward one step forward.
The analysis of DNA from archaeological human remains is plagued by a unique set of methodological problems concerning contamination with modern exogenous DNA. Through an original approach, weExpand

Ancient mitochondrial DNA from the middle neolithic necropolis of Obernai extends the genetic influence of the LBK to west of the Rhine.
OBJECTIVES The arrival of Neolithic farmers in Europe was the source of major cultural and genetic transitions. Neolithic settlers brought a new set of maternal lineages (mitochondrial DNA), recentlyExpand
