  • The distribution of Denisovan DNA in modern human populations raises questions about where these ancient humans lived and where they interbred with modern humans. The recent discovery of Denisovans (1, 2) and genetic evidence of their hybridization with modern human populations now found in Island Southeast Asia, Australia, and the Pacific (3) are intriguing and unexpected. The reference specimen for the Denisovan genome (4), a distal phalanx from a young girl, was recovered from the… CONTINUE READING
