Genetics & Morphology

Graciela Cabana

What, if any, is the correlation between genetic and morphological distance?  I will be addressing this question through a dual ancient DNA and morphological analysis on single ‘population’ samples.  Additionally, I am interested in understanding which morphological traits provide the most information about population relationships?  The first part of the analysis involves a sample from the Norris Farms No. 36 site in Illinois.

This project is NSF-funded.
