Insights into hominin phenotypic and dietary evolution from ancient DNA sequence data.

  title={Insights into hominin phenotypic and dietary evolution from ancient DNA sequence data.},
  author={George H Perry and Logan Kistler and Mary A Kelaita and Aaron J Sams},
  journal={Journal of human evolution},
Nuclear genome sequence data from Neandertals, Denisovans, and archaic anatomically modern humans can be used to complement our understanding of hominin evolutionary biology and ecology through i) direct inference of archaic hominin phenotypes, ii) indirect inference of those phenotypes by identifying the effects of previously-introgressed alleles still present among modern humans, or iii) determining the evolutionary timing of relevant hominin-specific genetic changes. Here we review and… CONTINUE READING
