人类第一次与尼安德特人交配至少50000年前

来源:admin 发布日期2018-09-18

Following the genome sequence of the oldest modern human remains outside of Africa using the most refined DNA analysis to data, scientists believe they arrived at a more price time frame when humans and Neanderthals first interbred –; sometimes between 50,000 and 60,000 years ago。 The findings also suggest modern humans arrived in northern Eurasia substantially earlier than some scientists thought。

Carbon dating and DNA sequence was conducted on the shaft of a thighbone found by an artist and mammoth ivory collector on the left bank of the river Irtysh near the settlement of Ust’;-Ishim in western Siberia in 2008。 The remains changed several hands before they eventually reached the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Germany, where Prof Svante Paabo and colleagues pioneered methods to extract DNA from ancient human remains and read its genetic code。 They found the remains belong to a person who lived some 45,000 years ago at a time when modern humans were only beginning to expand across Europe and Asia。

This reconstruction of another ancient modern human found in Romania 43,000 years ago gives us a glimpse of how the Siberian man might have looked like。

The earliest modern human

The analysis revealed several important insights like the ancient’;s diet  that included plants or plant eaters and fish or other aquatic life。 Most importantly, the DNA sequence shows that the ancient human shared unshuffled chunks of DNA from a now extinct species of human, Neanderthals who evolved outside of Africa。 Namely, 2。3 percent of his DNA came from Neanderthals,  a bit higher than found in modern humans living outside Africa today — a level that ranges from 1。7 to 2。1 percent — but too small a difference to be statistically significant。 The new analysis of the date of human-Neanderthal mixing dramatically narrowed the likely range to between 50,000 and 60,000 years ago, a much tighter window than the previous range of between 37,000 and 86,000 years ago。
