MSNBC- Cosmic Log - over 4 years
MPIEA Ancient DNA was extracted and analyzed using a novel sequencing approach. By Alan Boyle Follow @b0yle Degraded DNA molecules from a group of human relatives who went extinct tens of thousands of years ago have been reassembled using a new technique, yielding a genetic code for the mysterious Denisovans that meets the standard for modern humans.
