Stories Related to Genome Of Ancient Denisovans May Help Clarify Human Evolution


New technology enabled scientists to obtain a high-precision genetic sequencing of the extinct Denisovan people, a relative of humans.Our ancestors didn't walk alone: Neanderthals and other ancient peoples shared Earth with them tens of thousands of years ago.

"Our team has discovered partial human remains before, but the location of the discovery, visible damage to the skull and marks on the bones immediately made us realize this finding was unusual," Bill Kelso, chief archaeologist of the Jamestown Rediscovery Project in Virginia, said in a news release issued Wednesday.
