Why Am I Neanderthal?

This is a continuation of the story about Denisovans. The question is, why would today’s humans have any Neanderthal DNA in their genes?

Well, an online article by National Geographic explains more about the Neanderthal in the DNA query…and talks a little about Denisovans as well.

But NPR also has a story

And so does Gizmodo

And even Slate magazine.

So, science keeps learning more. Or at least I do.
