    Neanderthal Genome Sequenced

    Shop Now
    A team led by the department of Evolutionary Genetics at the Max-Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology published the results of a project to sequence the entire Neanderthal genome and compare it to a sample of modern humans. Surprising to many, 1-4% of the genetic material of the human samples outside of sub-Saharan Africa derived from the Neanderthal genome. The widespread existence of the genetic material indicates that the earliest human groups leaving Africa interbred with Neanderthal populations before further diverging throughout Eurasia.

    Very interesting - thank you!
    Sometimes you need to be told the truth in order to be able to see it.
