Ancient DNA: How genetics can reveal the secrets of evolution

The mystery of what happens to DNA after death has long fascinated scientists. Their panellists will outline the biological processes that degrade DNA after death and then compare specific case studies to show how this unique substance changes in different environments. From the ancient penguins preserved in the frozen layers of Antarctica to the sacred ibis mummies from the catacombs of Egypt, their experts will reveal how they decode DNA from a range of archaeological sites centuries after death.
