Much of my work engages with the need to be responsible to communities and stakeholders in fieldwork and genetic analysis. I group my considerations of these areas of professional and global ethics under this tag.
The basic foundation of ethical practices includes honoring and respecting those who have made our research and learning possible.
I helped to draft a statement for the American Society of Human Genetics on responsible research on ancient DNA.
Working with communities can be challenging but is essential to build a strong science of the past.
In this contribution, Keolu Fox and I consider what is necessary to build a sustainable science of ancient DNA.
