Abstract :
Paleogenomics aims at reconstructing the genomes of extinct species, whose DNA can not be sequenced due to molecular decay. Hence the only possible approach is the study of current genomes (i.e. descendants of these extinct species) to detect conserved features that might indicate ancestral genomic characters and then to assemble these characters into ancestral genomes. In this talk I will describe recent (successfull?) efforts to reconstruct the architecture of ancient vertebrate genomes, from placental mammalians to amniotes.
