My name is Svetoslav Stamov, I;m an anthropologist. Graduated from Duke where I studied and also taught for a time.
You told me about this project and Im super intrigued. I'm interested how Bg is working with such an elite uni like Harvard. Where did the idea come for this study and what is the purpose of it (esp in terms of academia and for bulgarians)?
PT: Are there any results so far? SS: The initial results are from 2 skeletons. One is from the end of the first kingdom/empire during Simeon’s time (this would be Simeon the Great).
PT: As a specialist in this area, how many studies/trialswould you say we need to have a truly clear pic of what happened with proto-bgs and their origins?
PT: Interesting, etc (a bunch of unimportant shit).
When should we expect the first big publications in Science, Nature, etc?
SS: Earliest will be 2021
In the next few months, we have the bandwidth to sequence a bunch of stuff, anything that could potentially address an unanswered genetic question.
