Workshop: 2018 Annual North American Meeting of Paleopathology Association

Parasitology in Paleopathology – New Perspectives Using Large Data Bases

Date: 8:30 am - 11:00 am, April 10 (Tuesday), 2018 

Organizers: Dong Hoon Shin,1 Morgana Camacho,2 Johnica Morrow,3 Karl Reinhard3

The goal of this workshop is the demonstration of insights that can be gained from analysis of large data sets.  These data sets, ranging from 100 to 1,000 samples, can provide epidemiological insights into transmission and pathology caused by parasites.  Large data sets also provide insights into zoonotic transmission.  Most importantly, focused studies can also connect parasitological infections with bone pathology. The core presentations are listed below:
