The human genome mainly overlaps with Neanderthals and other human ancestors

Humans like to think they’re special, but our genes suggest that’s far from true. No more than 7% of the human genome is unique to Homo sapiens, according to a study It was published Friday in the journal Science Advances. We share the remaining pieces of our genetic material with other human ancestors, or hominids, … Read more

They discover in the genome of modern humans the footprint of an enigmatic archaic ancestor ›Mundo› Granma

Some humans carry genes from an unknown “super archaic” hominin, whose genome has never been sequenced from remains. This is the conclusion reached by a team of American geneticists and computer scientists who have studied gene flow between different populations of modern man and their ancestors, reported RT. A new algorithm, which the researchers describe … Read more
