"Africans and Neanderthals"

Recommended Posts

J Sonnentag

From the description:

A recent article in Cell argues that there is some Neanderthal DNA in Africans and that some (but not all) of it got there via Europeans migrating back to Africa. The article also argues that previous belief that Africans did not have Neanderthal DNA was based on methodologically flawed studies. The field needs more research and caution is urged in adopting firm conclusions at this time.
