Evolutionary history of oral microorganisms in Neandertals

This honours project will use novel methods to reconstruct ancient genomes from both Neandertals and our ancestors.

We recently published the oldest microbial genome to date at 48,000 years old, and we are interested in an honours student to continue to mine these data sets using a novel approach.

This project is largely bioinformatics based.
