I, and Mark Spigelman organize the symposium in Mummy Congress held in June, this year.

Call for Papers: DNA and Associated Biomolecules in Mummy Research
Organizers: Mark Spigelman (Sydney, Australia) and Dong Hoon Shin (Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea; email:

Sponsoring organization: 7th World Congress on Mummy Research.

DNA and associated biomolecules form an important and growing part of research associated with mummy studies. A discussion of the progress and future direction of this science will help mummy researchers to better understand how this type of investigation could assist workers in the field and also contribute to a better understanding of the life and death of mummies. As this research is potentially destructive, the symosium will discuss how to biopsy mummies using minimally destructive or intrusive methodology. A second goal of the symposium is to try to establish baselines and protocols on how and/or what to sample and amounts to be taken in order to achieve the desired results. Persons interested in participating in this session are urged to contact the organizers.
