Ancient DNA typing of archaeological pig remains corroborates historical records

Haile, J.; Larson, Greger; Owens, Kimberley Ann; Dobney, Keith; Shapiro, Beth


The recent increase in both the abundance and taxonomic range of DNA sequence data in public repositories makes it possible to determine the maternal origin of lineages of faunal archaeological material by characterizing its mitochondrial DNA. Among the most commonly represented taxa are domesticated animals, for which extensive genetic characterization has revealed high levels of genetic diversity and (in at least some cases) strong phylogeographic clustering. Such information has significant...[Show more]
