News - Genomes of Five Late Neanderthals Provide Insights into Neanderthal History

Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig have reconstructed the DNA of five ‘late’ Neandertals, two of them found on Belgian ground. By comparing the genome of the Neandertals, we gain insight in population shifts towards the end of Neandertal history.

Not much is known about Neandertal diversity, or the relation between Neandertals and early humans. That is why the research team of evolutionary biologist Svante Pääbo sequenced the nuclear genome of five late Neandertals, who lived between 39.000 and 47.000 years ago.
