Bryan Sykes, Professor of Human Genetics at the University of Oxford, is one of the world's leading geneticists. After undertaking medical research into the causes of inherited bone disease, he discovered DNA could survive in ancient bones, and he was the first to report on the recovery of ancient DNA from archaeological bones in the journal, Nature, in 1989.
Since then, Professor Sykes has been called in as the leading international authority to examine several high-profile cases, such as the Ice Man, Cheddar Man, and the many individuals claiming to be members of the Russian royal family. Prof. Sykes and his research team have, over the last decade, compiled the most complete DNA family tree of our species yet available. They are the founders of Oxford Ancestors Ltd., the world's leading provider of DNA-based services for use in personal ancestry research.
