HUMAN EVOLUTION & THE NEANDERTHAL GENOME

November 2006

This week saw the publication of the first drafts of the Neanderthal Genome – the genome of our closest relative. There is a FREE ACCESS “focus” section on the Nature website, which includes a video, a link to the latest Nature podcast, and access to some articles.

Here is a picture of the Neanderthal femur they used to extract the DNA.
