A draft sequence of the Neandertal genome. – Abstract – Europe PMC

A Draft Sequence of the Neandertal Genome. Comparisons of the Neandertal genome to the genomes of five present-day humans from different parts of the world identify a number of genomic regions that may have been affected by positive selection in ancestral modern humans, including genes involved in metabolism and in cognitive and skeletal development.

White, Asian, Black people have deferent ancestor. By sequnece 14, potentially interesting protein coding regions of the Neandertal DNA and alignment with human data is was possible to identify 88 amino acid substitutions that uniquely fixed in humans.

Further research is essential to determine their importance for the development of the present day human species. I demand a recount!

Among those genes were the MC1R gene involved in skin srquence parts of the Drafg gene which plays a role in speech and language, fragments of the ABO blood group locus and a gene involved in taste perception.

A comment on this article appears in ” Genomics: Subsequently the technique of pyrosequencing will be explained later was used to determine the sequence of short pieces of DNA. Since no Neandertal fossils have been found in Asia so far the researchers concluded that the admixture of Neandertals and humans most have occurred before the divergence of Asian populations from the European ones.

An interesting article I found describing genetic comparisons between Neanderthals and humans. Here’s the original paper.

In order to obtain a better view of the relationship between the Neandertal and out own genome, the analysis of the whole amount of nuclear DNA became necessary. Because Neandertals and the presently living humans Homo sapiens occurred in the same geographic area at about the vraft time from aboutto 30, years ago, some researchers considered it likely that individuals from types could have interbred. She is quoting study from that only compared FIVE people. All these steps were undertaken in a so-called clean-room laboratory of the Max Planck Institute for Sequennce Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, in order to prevent the zequence DNA from further contamination.
