5TH INTERNATIONAL ANCIENT DNA CONFERENCEMANCHESTER, U.K.-- Some 110 scientists from a range of disciplines gathered in the overcast British midlands for the 5th International Ancient DNA Conference, held here from 12 to 14 July. Among the attractions were new insights into the diets of early Americans gleaned from ancient human coprolites and intriguing reports of nuclear DNA and ancient viral sequences extracted from mammoth bones.

Ancient DNA: the first three decades
The molecular cloning of a small fragment of DNA from a piece of dry tissue of a quagga, an extinct member of the horse family, was reported 30 years ago and several hundred scientists would meet at The Royal Society.
Challenges of phylogenetic analyses of aDNA sequences.
In this paper some fundamental problems of phylogenetic analysis and interpretation of aDNA datasets are discussed and Suggestions for character sampling and treatment of missing data are made.
Effect of the Interface Resistance on the Extraordinary Magnetoresistance of Semiconductor/Metal Hybrid Structures
We report on magnetotransport experiments performed at 4.2 K on hybrid structures consisting of a metal and a mesoscopic two-dimensional electron system in an InAs/InGaAs heterostructure. The devices
