Scientific projects Reconstruction of genetic diversity and migratory patterns of late Avar population using ancient DNA analysis led by dr. sc. Dubravka Havaš Auguštin and Tracing the Slavic origins of Croatians using ancient genomes led by dr. sc. Jelena Šarac are being implemented at the Department of Evolutionary Anthropology, University of Vienna, under the mentorship of prof. dr. sc. Ron Pinhasi. Both projects are funded by the Austrian Academy of Sciences (Joint Excellence in Science and Humanities (JESH) program) and the Croatian ministry of Science and Education project EUROGENESIS led by Dr. sc. Mario Novak.

Attached is a link to the video of PhD student Victoria Oberreiter about the work in the Laboratory for Ancient DNA where these projects are carried out, and in which these scientists also participate.
