A refined global picture of Denisovan admixture

Sankararaman, S., Mallick, S., Patterson, N., & Reich, D. (2016). The Combined Landscape of Denisovan and Neanderthal Ancestry in Present-Day Humans. Current Biology, 26:1–7. [In Press Corrected Proof, online 28 Mar 2016: http://doi.org/10.1016/j.cub.2016.03.037]

Some present-day humans derive up to ∼5% [ 1 ] of their ancestry from archaic Denisovans, an even larger proportion than the ∼2% from Neanderthals [ 2 ]. We developed methods that can disambiguate the locations of segments of Denisovan and Neanderthal ancestry in present-day humans and applied them to 257 high-coverage genomes from 120 diverse populations,  … ⇒
