Ancient Pathogen Genomes and What They Reveal About the Colonization of Mexico

This conversation was led by Dr. María Ávila-Arcos, Associate Professor at the International Laboratory for Human Genome Research in the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). She completed her undergraduate studies in Genomic Sciences at UNAM and later obtained her doctorate degree in palaeogenomics at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. She subsequently did a postdoc in population genetics at Stanford University. Her work has focused on the analysis of ancient genomes from a variety of species, including plants, viruses, animals, and humans. Her current research interests turn around how the genomes of the Mexican populations have changed, as well as of various pathogens that have infected them, over time.
