Upcoming 5 days
Late lunch talk by Robin Cristofari
In a sort of a special edition of the TGAC journal club, we hope to finally find out whether Thor Heyerdahl was right after all with his claims regarding early contact between the cultures of South America and Easter Island, whether his Kon-Tiki expedition in 1947 was just a fun cruise across the Pacific without any scientific substantiation, or whether genomic data actually supports his ideas. We will find the answers in the very recent paper by Moreno-Mayar et al. (2014), which just came out in Current Biology and comes with a commentary in Science. Four of the authors are working at the University Hospital here in Oslo, and at least two of them will join our discussion!
As there will be a CELS meeting this Tuesday at 1 pm, the TGAC discussion will be earlier than usual, at 11 am.
