In the past two decades, ancient DNA research has progressed from the retrieval of small fragments of mitochondrial DNA from a few specimens to large-scale genome studies of ancient human populations, the diseases they carried, and the environment surrounding them. Increasingly, ancient genetic information is providing a unique means to directly test theories in archaeology, anthropology, ecology, and evolutionary biology. Initial results have changed the way we look at long debated topics such as early peopling of the Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
