Nested ‘DNA’ of Ancestor that Mated with Ancient Humans Discovered

Stephanie Pappas Live Science Today’s humans carry the genes of an ancient, unknown ancestor, left there by hominin species intermingling perhaps a million years ago. The ancestor may have been Homo erectus, but no one knows for sure — the genome of that extinct species of human has never been sequenced, said Adam Siepel, a computational biologist at Cold Spring … Continue reading

You May Be More Closely Related to ‘Neanderthal’ Than You Thought

A female Neanderthal who lived in what is now Croatia 52,000 years ago is revealing that our “caveman” relatives may have passed on genes that play roles in cholesterol levels, eating disorders, arthritis and other diseases today, the researchers who sequenced her genome say. And some modern humans are carrying around more Neanderthal DNA than scientists had thought: The study … Continue reading

Ancient DNA Reveals How Cats Used Humans to Conquer the World

Ancient DNA from 209 cats over 9,000 years tell the story of their dispersal Sometime around the invention of agriculture, the cats came crawling. It was mice and rats, probably, that attracted the wild felines. The rats came because of stores of grain, made possible by human agriculture.
