Broad Institute Lecture & Reception, Wednesday September 14 2011

You are cordially invited to this lecture and reception at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard in its 7 Cambridge Center building.  Dr. Nick Patterson, Trinity Hall Cambridge, a scientist at the Broad Institute, will present a lecture on the topic Human Genetic History: Neandertals and Their Relatives.

Analysis of the fossil record has revealed much about human ancestors from the past six million years.  Now DNA analysis has significantly increased our knowledge, especially with the sequencing of the Neandertal genome.  Neandertal DNA and the discovery of a different source of human-like DNA in a cave in Denisova located in Siberia has revealed surprising interconnections for modern humans.

The lecture will be followed by a reception with light refreshments and soft drinks in the lobby area of the Center, which also contains exhibits relating to the work of the Institute in various fields. See www.broadinstitute.org/outreach/dnatrium/dnatrium for more information.
