Pursued Objectives


   Leveraging the expertise of an interdisciplinary team of collaborators including geneticists, biologists, computer scientists, and medical professionals, the proposed project reconstruct the complex history of Greek sub-populations, providing a high resolution genomic reference map of Greece and further insight into European population migrations and substructure. Our specific aims run in three major directions:


    1. Dissect population structure of Greek sub-populations both within Greece as well as the ancient Greek diaspora, reconstructing the complex history of the Greek populations and placing Hellenic genome diversity in a worldwide framework. Towards this goal we pursue he following directions:


      2. Build important infrastructure for the study of genomic variation in Greece. We aim to:

    3. Pursue wide-spread dissemination of our results to the scientific community and the general public. Towards this goal we disseminate knowledge through publications in peer reviewed journal as well as popular press, and organise workshops and lectures.
