Entire Neanderthal Genome Mapped For The First Time
Do we need to reconsider that "N" in DNA? For the very first time scientists have sequenced the entire genome of a Neanderthal, by extracting a tiny sliver of bone from a toe bone that was found in Siberia in 2010 and applying DNA sequencing processes. Earlier Neanderthal DNA experiments, including some by the same team, have created databases of partial genome maps but the new effort means that the Neanderthal genome is now mapped as well we are. The data is likely to prove extremely usef...
