Center for Demographic Genetics of the Academy of Sciences and Arts of Bosnia and Herzegovina is a research institution dedicated to the study of genetic diversity and population genetics within Bosnia and Herzegovina. It operates under the auspices of the Academy of Sciences and Arts of Bosnia and Herzegovina, focusing on understanding the genetic makeup of the country's population, its historical migrations, and demographic changes. The center employs a multidisciplinary approach, integrating genetics, anthropology, history, and demography to provide insights into the genetic structure and evolutionary history of human populations in the region.

Mission and Objectives[edit | edit source]

The primary mission of the Center for Demographic Genetics is to conduct comprehensive research on the genetic composition of the population in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Its objectives include:

  • Mapping the genetic diversity within the country.
  • Studying the effects of historical migrations and invasions on the genetic makeup of the population.
  • Understanding the demographic changes and their impact on genetic variation.
  • Contributing to the global understanding of human genetic diversity and evolution.

Research Areas[edit | edit source]

The Center focuses on several key research areas:
