The Nottingham Ancient and Environmental DNA Laboratory (ÆDNA) opened in June 2022 which will allow DNA from ancient and environmental samples to be analysed.

The new lab will represent a significant advance in research capability at the University and provide a great opportunity for researchers from different disciplines to work together on important projects.
Having access to this state-of-the-art facility will allow researchers to analyse DNA from archaeological material, preserved plant specimens, ancient soils and museum objects that are hundreds to thousands of years old.
