Resources of Interest to AAAG Members


In a time of major economic change, shifting national priorities, and far-reaching academic reorganization, the research milieu is precarious. It is important that the public, our elected officials, and the various funding agencies be aware of the significance of the research topics considered by anthropological geneticists. In its public service and educational role, the AAAG expects to provide such a voice on behalf of its membership.

Anthropological geneticists are located in medical schools and anthropology departments, as well as outside of academia. They represent a broad range of research specialties. Membership in the AAAG and other professional organizations enables individual members to network with colleagues. The following list (incomplete as it is) of professional organizations, labs, databases and other web links provides a picture of the research interests held by members of AAAG, as well as a number of academic institutions that provide training opportunities, journals, software, etc.

Want to advertise a position here, or bring your lab, software, or other resources to the attention of AAAG members?  Send us the information!

This resource area is meant as a tool for finding information on anthropological genetics available on the web. AAAG is not responsible for and does not endorse the following websites, but merely provides the information.
