In an original research article, DFG Center members Hugo Reyes-Centeno and Katerina Harvati quantify the association of genomic variation and cranial shape between modern human populations. Former DFG Center fellow Silvia Ghirotto of the University of Ferrara is co-author of the paper, published in the January 2017 issue of the American Journal of Physical Anthropology.
