Franz Manni (1973) studied Biology and Genetics at the University of Ferrara, Italy. In 1997 he graduated with distinction (cum laude) with a Laurea in Biology concerning Historical Demography.

In 2000 F. Manni completed a PhD project in Population Ge‐netics at the Department of Biology of the University of Ferrara under the supervision of Italo Barrai.

In 2003 he became Maître de Conferences (Assistant Professor) in Genet‐ics at the Department Hommes, Natures, Sociétés of the National Museum of Natural History of Paris (France) where he conducts multidisciplinary research involving de‐mography, genetics and linguistics.

From 2008 to 2013 he has been the Executive Edi‐tor of the Journal Human Biology (Wayne State University Press, Detroit, MI) and, since 2013, he is Scientific Commissioner at the Musée de l’Homme, Paris.

Franz Manni has been co‐working with the Department Alfa‐Informatica of the University of Gron‐ingen since 2001 about the projects included in this dissertation.
