Chromosome Y analysis of the descendants and potential ancestors of the Inca rulers
This project based at the Australian Centre for Ancient DNA will leverage a recently published study (Sandoval et al. 2018) that reports Chromosome Y lineages from descendants of the Inca nobility.
The aim will be to generate genetic information from the chromosome Y of pre-Columbian and present-day individuals and test ancestral relationships along paternal lineages.
The work will be both experimental and computer-based.
