Ancient mitochondrial DNA has been used in a wide variety of paleontological and archeological studies, ranging from population dynamics of extinct species to patterns of domestication. Most of these studies have traditionally been based on the analysis of short fragments from the mitochondrial control region, analyzed using PCR coupled with Sanger sequencing. With the introduction of high-throughput sequencing, as well as new enrichment technologies, the recovery of full mitochondrial genomes… Expand
Cost-effective straightforward method for captured whole mitogenome sequencing of ancient DNA.
TLDR
The whole mitogenome Illumina-based sequencing method provides an effective analysis of whole mtDNA, and has proven to be fast, cost-effective, straightforward, with utilisation in population-wide research of burial sites. Expand
Paleogenomics: Genome-Scale Analysis of Ancient DNA and Population and Evolutionary Genomic Inferences
TLDR
In this chapter, some of the advances in ancient DNA sequencing are reviewed and examples of recent case studies in paleogenomic research are given. Expand
Technical Advances and Challenges in Genome-Scale Analysis of Ancient DNA
TLDR
In this chapter, an overview of some of the major technical advances and challenges in aDNA and paleogenomic research is provided. Expand
Ancient DNA From Museum Specimens and Next Generation Sequencing Help Resolve the Controversial Evolutionary History of the Critically Endangered Puebla Deer Mouse
TLDR
This study demonstrates that high-throughput sequencing of ancient DNA, appropriately controlling for contamination and degradation, can provide a robust resolution of the evolutionary history and taxonomic status of species for which few or no modern genetic samples exist. Expand
Massive influence of DNA isolation and library preparation approaches on palaeogenomic sequencing data
TLDR
It is found that alternative methodologies can significantly and substantially affect total DNA yield, the mean length and length distribution of recovered fragments, nucleotide composition, and the total amount of usable data generated. Expand
Combined hybridization capture and shotgun sequencing for ancient DNA analysis of extinct wild and domestic dromedary camel
TLDR
The results show that hybridization capture increased the percentage of mitochondrial DNA recovery by an average 187‐fold and in some cases yielded virtually complete mitochondrial DNA genomes at multifold coverage in a single capture experiment, highlighting that obtaining ancient DNA (aDNA) from specimens recovered from hot, arid environments is still problematic.

Whole-Genome Capture of Ancient DNA Using Homemade Baits.
TLDR
An in-solution enrichment protocol based on homemade baits that can be applied to recover complete nuclear genomes from ancient remains that may offer increased flexibility and cost efficiency. Expand
Single-tube library preparation for degraded DNA
TLDR
Four Illumina library preparation protocols are compared, including two “single-tube” methods developed for this study with the explicit aim of improving data quality and reducing preparation time and expenses, and single-tube protocols increase library complexity, yield more reads that map uniquely to the reference genome, and may decrease laboratory costs by 90%.

An expanded mammal mitogenome dataset from Southeast Asia
TLDR
A new database of 52 taxa will strongly enhance the utility of environmental DNA approaches for monitoring mammals in SE Asia as it greatly increases the likelihoods that identification of metabarcoding sequencing reads can be assigned to reference sequences, which allows more robust surveys and monitoring programmes of SE Asia's threatened mammal biodiversity.

Mitogenomic analyses from ancient DNA.
TLDR
The increased information content offered by analysing full mitogenomes has yielded major progress with regard to both the phylogenetic positions of extinct species, as well as resolving population genetics questions in both extinct and extant species. Expand
A rapid column‐based ancient DNA extraction method for increased sample throughput
TLDR
The results on Pleistocene cave bear samples show that DNA yields are quantitatively comparable, and in fact even slightly better than with silica batch extraction, while at the same time the number of samples that can conveniently be processed in parallel increases and both bench time and costs decrease using this method. Expand
True single-molecule DNA sequencing of a pleistocene horse bone.
TLDR
The first "true single molecule sequencing" of ancient DNA is reported, suggesting that paleogenomes could be sequenced in an unprecedented manner by combining current second- and third-generation sequencing approaches. Expand
Targeted Investigation of the Neandertal Genome by Array-Based Sequence Capture
TLDR
It is shown that hybridization capture on microarrays can successfully recover more than a megabase of target regions from Neandertal DNA even in the presence of ~99.8% microbial DNA. Expand
Complete mitochondrial genome sequence of a Middle Pleistocene cave bear reconstructed from ultrashort DNA fragments
TLDR
The results prove that authentic ancient DNA can be preserved for hundreds of thousand years outside of permafrost and enable the retrieval of phylogenetically informative sequences from samples in which virtually all DNA is diminished to fragments shorter than 50 bp. Expand
Whole-Genome Shotgun Sequencing of Mitochondria from Ancient Hair Shafts
TLDR
The observed levels of damage-derived sequencing errors were lower than those observed in previously published frozen bone samples, even though one of the specimens was >50,000 14C years old and another had been stored for 200 years at room temperature. Expand
Ancient human genome sequence of an extinct Palaeo-Eskimo
TLDR
This genome sequence of an ancient human obtained from ∼4,000-year-old permafrost-preserved hair provides evidence for a migration from Siberia into the New World some 5,500 years ago, independent of that giving rise to the modern Native Americans and Inuit. Expand
Metagenomics to Paleogenomics: Large-Scale Sequencing of Mammoth DNA
TLDR
The high percentage of endogenous DNA recoverable from this single mammoth would allow for completion of its genome, unleashing the field of paleogenomics. Expand
Genetic analyses from ancient DNA.
TLDR
The precautions and criteria necessary to ascertain to the greatest extent possible that results represent authentic ancient DNA sequences are discussed, which highlight some significant results and areas of promising future research. Expand
A Draft Sequence of the Neandertal Genome
TLDR
The genomic data suggest that Neandertals mixed with modern human ancestors some 120,000 years ago, leaving traces of Ne andertal DNA in contemporary humans, suggesting that gene flow from Neand Bertals into the ancestors of non-Africans occurred before the divergence of Eurasian groups from each other.
