Genealogy at Lunchtime: The Irish DNA Atlas
Speaker: Gianpiero Cavalleri

Tuesday, 4 August at 1pm.

The Irish DNA Atlas is a genetic study of the Irish population. The aim of the project is to describe patterns in Irish DNA, in the context of European and global genetic diversity. This work can inform the history of the Irish population, as well as aid in the efforts to better understand the role of DNA in disease. The project is being run as collaboration between the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and the Irish Genealogical Society. Dr. Cavalleri will update the audience on how recruitment to the study is progressing, and the latest results to emerge from the project.
