Abstract

We will use state-of-the-art statistical methods to assess the patterns of genetic variation in ancient populations, which differ from those found in current populations due to varied past demographic events, such as population expansions, migration and admixture. We aim at inferring human evolutionary history in Northern Africa, by studying genome-wide ancient population-genetic data.
