Of Wheat and Men: Changes in Genetic Markers for Celiac Disease Over Time
In the recent past, sequencing of ancient human genomes has become increasingly common, leading to an immense amount of data to be explored. For this study we focused on comparing a set of ancient individuals with modern populations on behalf of markers for celiac disease. We analyzed a panel of 64 SNPs related to this disease, trying to detect changes in allele frequencies between ancient and modern individuals. We hope to make a contribution to the subject of genetic health throughout human history.
