Welcome to Axel Barlow’s
Pleistocene Genomics Lab
We use palaeogenomics to study the evolution and ecology of Pleistocene animals that lived tens of thousands of years ago!
We collect genomic data from ancient subfossil bones to study the evolution and ecology of Pleistocene animals. Find out more
Our work also involves the development and optimisation of new laboratory methods for recovering palaeogenomic data. Find out more
We also develop new computational and statistical methods for the analysis of palaeogenomic data. Find out more
We are also interested in the genomic analysis of historical museum specimens as a way of sampling endangered and recently extinct animals. Find out more
We also generate datasets for phylogenetic analysis and molecular dating. Find out more
