The evolutionary history of plague as revealed through the analysis of ancient Yersinia pestis genomes

Maria Alexandra Spyrou
The study of ancient pathogen genomics has the potential to reveal key insights into the history of infectious disease as well as into the processes that have triggered pathogen emergence leading to epidemics/pandemics. A characteristic historical example of abrupt infectious disease emergence is that of plague during the Black Death (1346- 1353 AD), which claimed the lives of up to 60% of the European population in only five years.
