- n. Alternative spelling of palaeogenomics.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Certainly the area where his almost twenty-person team of chemists and biochemists do their molecular slicing and dicing is well controlled, and the work of experts in paleogenomics who read the evolutionary history of life-forms through their genomes requires mind-numbing precision.
With the tools that Pääbo and colleagues have developed, though, perhaps we can start considering some paleogenomics projects to get not just the genomic sequences of modern forms, but of their ancestors as well.
They didn't just publish one mega-paper, but they had a whole section on Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, with a genomics mega-paper and articles on ecology and paleogenomics and the immune system and the transcriptome, and even a big poster of highlights of sea urchin research but strangely, very little on echinoderm development.
The findings may lead to a new way of researching the molecular genealogy and pathogen paleogenomics of the Pharaonic era, perhaps even a new field called 'molecular Egyptology.'
The study represents another step in blending science and history into "molecular genealogy" and "pathogen paleogenomics of the Pharaonic era," the authors said.

"In conclusion, this study suggests a new approach to research into the molecular genealogy and pathogen paleogenomics of the Pharaonic era.
