Anastasia was in Belgium in December, at the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences of KU Leuven University, to prepare more than 500 samples for carbon, nitrogen, and hydrogen stable isotope analyses; the latter of which is still ongoing. Hydrogen stable isotope (δ2H) results can be used to reconstruct past diets (combined with δ13C and...


Marica Baldoni is the new postdoc who joined the FELIX team in December! She will work on ancient cats’ metagenomics for the next two years to detect the presence of pathogens and reconstructing the ancient microbial communities…Good job, Marica!
