Researchers sequenced mitochondrial and/or nuclear genomes for dozens of wild and domestic ancient goats to explore domestication and selection patterns.

Using data from 1,000 Irish individuals, a Trinity College Dublin-led team uncovered nearly two dozen discrete genetic clusters.

Living DNA and its partners are aiming to create a detailed genetic map of the world based on people's DNA.

The transition from hunter-gatherer to agricultural lifestyles seems to have spread to the Baltics without massive migration from Anatolia or the Levant.

In Nature this week: ancient British genomes highlight influence of migration, and more.

Two teams sequenced the genomes of 20 individuals who lived in Iron Age, Roman-era, or Anglo-Saxon Britain to examine the population history of the region.

The genetic evidence supports a link between migrations and important cultural shifts like the emergence of agriculture or metal tools occurring in parallel.

Researchers report on the genomes of two ancient hunter-gatherers from the Caucasus.

Researchers used whole-genome sequencing to assess relapse, re-infection, and patient-to-patient transmission patterns in patients with multiple C. difficile infections at an Irish hospital.

A new study shows how NGS could help researchers retrace the history of livestock agriculture by sequencing DNA found in parchment.
