Making the Map of Ancient Parasite Infection in Korea
Starting this year, we will expand our sampling wok throughout the country of Korea; do the parasitological examinations on them; and finally make the Map of Ancient Parasite Infection in Korea by which we could check the ancient parasite egg species of certain regions and periods.
For this, we will collaborate with archaeologists in Korea and use various techniques (i.e. molecular biological technique) other than microscopic examinations for retriving much information from the samples.
This study will be performed in cooperation with Dr. Min Seo, Dept of Parasitology, Dankook University College of Medicine, Korea.
