Overall ethnography allows a practitioner to learn enough about a community’s culture to understand those processual matters, not products. In other words, the practitioner learns about the community’s thought process,...
Currently, knowledge of the impact of selection on maize diversity has focused on modern specimens rather than ancient. An expanded understanding of the genetic variation, evolutionary history, and domestication of maize can be gained...

STUDENT ORIENTATION 12
Influences on SWATC
Because few of SWATC’s programs included financial aid at the time, and our student base for adults going into full-time programs was much smaller than Bridgerland, members of the administration team at...
Ancient maize specimens used in this study were collected from F-448, a trench located on the lower northwest of the Corngrowers Site in a midden, garbage area (Figure 3 & 4). These were collected in 10-centimeter (cm) increments from a depth of...
beginning of the year. For this reason, teachers and administrators began to allocate much more
time and resources to children who were below-grade level. Kindergarten teachers in a local
school district were surveyed mid-way through the year to...

Employing molecular methods, this study investigated desiccated maize samples collected from the Anasazi Corngrowers Site (F-448 trench; ~1100 C.E.) in Arizona. Collected samples were identified previously as maize using...
CHAPTER 2: MATERIALS & METHODS
DNA Extraction and Regions Sampled
Ancient maize specimens were previously collected from the Corngrowers Site and identified based on their depth of occurrence from the trench surface. These specimens were ground...
CHAPTER 3: RESULTS
Real Time PCR (qPCR)
Differences in temperature represented sequence length changes of amplified PCR products and were designated as MTAs for each locus. Melting temperatures representing allelic changes for modern and ancient...
