CARTA: Ancient DNA and Human Evolution – Joshua Akey: A Map of Neandertal Genes in Present Day Humans

12/26/2016; 20 minutes

Joshua Akey (Univ of Washington) and his team have developed methods to identify Neandertal sequences that persist in the DNA of modern individuals and applied it to whole-genome sequences from over 1,500 geographically diverse individuals. Their data provide new insights into hominin evolutionary history and genomic regions that may harbor substrates of uniquely modern human phenotypes. (#30980)
