CARTA: Behaviorally Modern Humans: The Origin of Us - Richard "Ed" Green: Interbreeding with Archaic Humans outside Africa Neanderthals and Denisovans are the closest extinct ancestors of modern humans. High-quality genome sequence data is now available from both and has revealed multiple instances of admixture between these archaic hominins and the ancestors of currently living humans. Ed Green (UC Santa Cruz) discusses how he is using these data to refine the demographic models describing recent human evolution and to detect selective sweeps that post-dated our split from Neanderthals and Deniosvans.
