DNA Public Lecture & Professor Ludovic Orlando

Back in September I mentioned that there was going to be a DNA public lecture at The Royal Society. A fellow member of the Guild of One-Name Studies attended (+Debbie Kennett) and made a few notes about the events. You can read Debbie’s blog posts by clicking the links below

Professor Ludovic Orlando, University of Copenhagen, chaired the fourth session and delivered a lecture during session two titled “Digging out the deep evolutionary past of equids: toward really ancient genomes”. 

An audio file of the lecture is available from the Royal Society by clicking the audio link below


Ludovic Orlando received his PhD in molecular genetics from the University of Lyon, France, twenty years after the first ancient DNA molecule was ever sequenced. Trained in phylogenomics as a postdoc, he was rapidly appointed as a permanent Associate Professor at the prestigious ENS Lyon. He is now leading a research group at the Centre for GeoGenetics, Natural History Museum of Denmark, Copenhagen.  Current research in his lab focuses on developing integrative approaches for studying ancient DNA molecules, promoting the field of palaeomics by the merger of biochemistry, molecular biology, genomics and computational biology. These novel approaches have recently specifically been used to study the evolutionary history of one iconic mammal: the horse.
