Neanderthal and the present human beings were mating, apparently in genetic research

Every human being living all over the world is classified as Homo Sapiens, but until about 30,000 years ago, the Neanderthalis people (Homo neanderthalensis) also lived.

Genetic research confirms that non-Africans are part Neanderthal

Traditionally, Neanderthal who lived about 30,000 years ago and Homo sapiens, which was born about 250,000 years ago, are similar to human and chimpanzee, but they are different races It was thought. However, research results that the Neanderthal human genes are mixed in living humans in 2010 are announced, and this time, a paper confirming that again was announced. This paper will be published in the July issue of "Molecular Biology and Evolution" (Molecular Biology and Evolution).

According to this, a joint team of the pediatric department of Montreal University Hospital led by Dr. Damian Labuda and the CHU Sant Justine Research Center confirmed the X chromosome derived from Neanderthal human beings from people other than Africa. According to Dr. Labuda, this confirms the recent announcement that current human beings and Neanderthal human beings were crossed (mating), probably that they crossed the Middle East perhaps.

In doubt, "Neanderthal is an individual species and could you mate with the current human race?" Dr. Labuda says, "The answer is yes, the two races are in a very close relationship "Well, we would have had it." "I also conclude that our method did not rely on Neanderthal's material at all, so it was concluded that previous results were not affected by artifact contamination."

Although the Neanderthal people have been ruined about 20,000 thousand years ago as seeds, the genes still continue to live in our hearts.
