The project aims to analyse how the human oral microbiota evolved in response to important evolutionary processes during human history. One of the most important events on recent human evolution was the transition from a hunter-gatherer to agriculture during the Neolithic period (which in Italy begins ~6200 BC). This process led to a substantial change in the diet and living conditions of early human societies, possibly shaping the profile of the microbiota. This term indicates the set of human microbial symbionts, able to perform essential physiological functions and which are strongly influenced by diet. Through molecular analysis of dental calculus preserved on Neolithic human remains, it will be possible to reconstruct the profile of the ancient microbiota and understand how this transition toward agriculture has influenced its composition.
