Science Since the mtDNA is only a part of the whole genome, no absolute conclusion could be drawn from these conclusions. A Draft Sequence of the Neandertal Genome. Comparisons of the Neandertal genome to the genomes of five present-day humans from different parts of the world identify a number of genomic regions that may have been affected by positive selection in ancestral modern humans, including genes involved in metabolism and in cognitive and skeletal development.


All these steps were undertaken in a so-called clean-room laboratory of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, in order to prevent the sample DNA from further contamination. In addition further conclusion on the question whether Neandertals and humans ever have interbred could be made. It is fun and informative that the fabulous DrAliceRoberts live-tweets background info during screening of her own documentaries.

Among others, genes that were affected by those fixed changes are for example ABC transporters, potassium channels, G-protein coupled receptors and certain transcription factors.

We show that Neandertals shared more genetic variants with present-day humans in Eurasia than with present-day humans in sub-Saharan Africa, suggesting that gene flow from Neandertals drft the ancestors of non-Africans occurred before the divergence of Eurasian groups from each other.
