The working group Biogeology also collaborates with several other working groups within the University of Tübingen and is able to get samples further analysed for elemental C and N, S, Sr isotopes and deuterium, as well as undergo virtual imaging. We also have partner institutions outside Tübingen able to assist with 14C radiocarbon dating, ZooMS (Zooarchaeology by mass spectrometry), and archaeo- and palaeogenetics (ancient DNA).
