Plant and Microbial Biology Micro Seminar: "The ancestral human microbiome: the evolution and ecology of our microbial self"
Seminar | April 5 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall
Christina Warinner, University of Oklahoma
I am interested in evolutionary medicine and how understanding the ways in which humans have co-evolved with environments, diets, and pathogens allows us to better understand health and disease. My research draws on the methods and theoretical frameworks of several fields, including: molecular biology, archaeology, archaeogenetics (ancient DNA), stable isotope-based paleodietary and paleomigratory analysis, archaeobotany, and zooarchaeology. Links to open-access PDFs of my publications can be found on my Academia.edu and ResearchGate profiles.
