5.2k views

If you have uploaded your file to gedmatch and wait for the one-to-many matches, you can have some fun comparing your chromosomes with a Neanderthal or Denisovian.

Use 'One-to-one' compare with your kit and the kit F999902 (for "the" Neanderthal") or F999903 (for "the" Denisovian).

Interestingly I have most Neanderthal in gen 21 and 22.

I assume that most if it is in gen 23, as I am male ;-)

Cheers,

Andreas

Why?  What's the reason?  Considering we may all have the neanderthal gene in us as it was quite possible that there were interbreeding between the species.

Well, it is fun to know that I have more Neanderthal DNA than my husband.  It explains a lot in our household!  ;)

LOL!   I see your point.   cheeky

STUDIES PUBLISHED IN MEDICAL AND SCIENCE JOURNALS REGARDING THE FINDINGS OF THE HUMAN GENOME PROJECT REPORT THAT ALL EUROPEANS HAVE AT LEAST ONE PER CENT NEANDERTAL DNA.  THOSE OF AFRICAN AND ASIAN DESCENT DO NOT.

THE NEANDERTAL TOOK CARE OF THEIR AGED AND INJURED MEMBERS AND BURIED THEIR CHILDREN WITH FLOWERS. REFERENCE THE STUDIES DONE AT SHANIDAR.
