New evidence in search for the Denisovans

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

An international group of researchers including experts from the Natural History Museum and led by the University of Adelaide has conducted a comprehensive genetic analysis and found no evidence of interbreeding between modern humans and the ancient humans known from fossil records in Island Southeast Asia. The team found further DNA evidence of our mysterious ancient cousins, the Denisovans, which could mean there are major discoveries to come in the region.

In the study published in Nature Ecology and Evolution, the researchers examined the genomes of more than 400 modern humans to investigate the interbreeding events between ancient humans and modern human populations who arrived at Island Southeast Asia 50,000–60,000 years ago.

For decades Native American and Asian researchers were under the opinion that "shovel" incisors and the layer of yellow fat came from a breeding with Homo Erectus. Now it looks like it probably came from these characters.
