The Center for Academic Research and Training in Anthropogeny (CARTA) is largely a virtual organization established to promote transdisciplinary research into human origins (aka anthropogeny), drawing on methods from a number of traditional disciplines spanning the social, biomedical, biological, computational and engineering, physical and chemical sciences, and the humanities. CARTA began as a collaboration between faculty at UC San Diego and at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, along with interested scientists at other institutions. In January 2008, CARTA became a UC San Diego recognized Organized Research Unit (ORU).
