Beth Shapiro - Ancient DNA: what it is and what it could be?






Beth Shapiro - Professor, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Santa Cruz in California. As an evolutionary biologist, she uses genomics to better understand the complex relationship between the environment and the evolution of species. Beth - a pioneer in the new field called "ancient DNA", has traveled to the Arctic, gathering the bones of long-dead creatures, including mammoths, horses and extinct giant bears. Using DNA extracted from these remains, she hopes to find out how environment influences the evolution and why some species are more prone to extinction than others.
