The phylogenetic relationships between hominins of the Early Pleistocene epoch in Eurasia, such as Homo antecessor, and hominins that appear later in the fossil record during the Middle Pleistocene epoch, such as Homo sapiens, are highly debated1–5. For the oldest remains, the molecular study of these relationships is hindered by the degradation of ancient DNA. However, recent research has demonstrated that the analysis of ancient proteins can address this challenge6–8. Here we present the… Expand
The unidirectional phylogeny of Homo sapiens anchors the origin of modern humans in Eurasia
TLDR
The conformity between the mtDNA and Y-DNA phylogenies of Hss is consistent with the understanding that Eurasia was the donor and not the receiver in human evolution. Expand
A multi-proxy approach to exploring Homo sapiens’ arrival, environments and adaptations in Southeast Asia
TLDR
It is argued that this climate-driven shift offered new foraging opportunities for hominins in a novel rainforest environment and was most likely a key factor in the settlement and dispersal of the authors' species during MIS 4 in SE Asia. Expand
A new perspective on the origin of Homo sapiens
In this paper, we critically review the current paradigm, which places the origin of Homo sapiens in Africa as the result of the evolution of a Middle Pleistocene species. In the African fossil rec...
AMELY deletion is not detected in systematically sampled reference populations: A Reply to Štamfelj
TLDR
Examining the occurrence of AMELY deletion in the systematically sampled, high coverage, large scale, and well-curated populations of the 1000 Genomes Project and Exome Sequencing Project concludes that, for now, AM Ely deletion should have no bearing on routine biomolecular sex estimation. Expand
Ancient enamel peptides recovered from the South American Pleistocene species Notiomastodon platensis and Myocastor cf. coypus.
TLDR
This study shows that it is possible to obtain information based on plenty of ancient peptides recovered from subsuperficial enamel of fossil teeth from South American Pleistocene, and suggests that peptides are likely the best preserved biomolecules under certain harsh environmental conditions. Expand
Assessing the degradation of ancient milk proteins through site-specific deamidation patterns
TLDR
It is demonstrated that site-specific deamidation is a useful tool for identifying modern contamination but the need for multiple lines of evidence to authenticate ancient protein data is highlighted. Expand
Comparative dental study between Homo antecessor and Chinese Homo erectus: Nonmetric features and geometric morphometrics.
TLDR
The Chinese Middle Pleistocene fossils from Hexian, Xichuan, Yiyuan, and Zhoukoudian have been generally classified as Homo erectus s.s. erectus, and the differences between these two species suggest their divergence occurred at some point in the Early pleistocene, and thereafter they followed different evolutionary paths.

Coping with arid environments: A critical threshold for human expansion in Europe at the Marine Isotope Stage 12/11 transition? The case of the Iberian Peninsula.
TLDR
An 'Iberian' ecological model is proposed before and after the MIS 12/11 transition, which indicates the existence of climatic constraints on human settlement related to rainfall and environmental humidity and indicates that parts of the Iberian Peninsula may not have been suitable for early hominin occupation. Expand
Fine-grained temporal mapping of derived high-frequency variants supports the mosaic nature of the evolution of Homo sapiens
TLDR
An open repository of genetic variant age estimations recently made available is offered, offering here a temporal evaluation of various evolutionarily relevant datasets, such as Homo sapiens-specific variants, high-frequency variants found in genetic windows under positive selection, introgressed variants from extinct human species, as well as putative regulatory variants in various brain regions. Expand
Girding the loins? Direct evidence of the use of a medieval English parchment birthing girdle from biomolecular analysis
TLDR
This study is, to its knowledge, the first to extract and analyse non-collagenous peptides from a birth girdle using this sampling method and demonstrates the potential of this type of analysis for stained manuscripts, providing direct biomolecular evidence for active use. Expand

A late Middle Pleistocene Denisovan mandible from the Tibetan Plateau
TLDR
Fossil evidence indicates that Denisovans occupied the Tibetan Plateau in the Middle Pleistocene epoch and successfully adapted to this high-altitude hypoxic environments long before the regional arrival of modern Homo sapiens. Expand
A new method for enamel amino acid racemization dating: A closed system approach
Abstract Analysis of the predictable breakdown of proteins and amino acids in ancient biominerals enables age estimation over the Quaternary. We postulate that enamel is a suitable biomineral for theExpand
BEAST 2.5: An Advanced Software Platform for Bayesian Evolutionary Analysis
TLDR
The full range of new tools and models available on the BEAST 2.5 platform are described, which expand joint evolutionary inference in many new directions, especially for joint inference over multiple data types, non-tree models and complex phylodynamics. Expand
BEAST 2.5: An advanced software platform for Bayesian evolutionary analysis
TLDR
A series of major new developments in the BEAST 2 core platform and model hierarchy that have occurred since the first release of the software, culminating in the recent 2.5 release are described. Expand
Direct estimation of mutations in great apes reconciles phylogenetic dating
TLDR
Analysis of de novo mutations in sequences of great ape parent-offspring trios suggests that mutation rates slowed down in the recent human lineage, reconciling dates from the fossil record. Expand
Early Pleistocene enamel proteome sequences from Dmanisi resolve Stephanorhinus phylogeny
TLDR
It is demonstrated that sequencing the proteome of Early Pleistocene dental enamel overcomes the limitations of phylogenetic inference based on ancient collagen or DNA, and resolves the phylogeny of Eurasian Rhinocerotidae. Expand
Enamel Proteome shows that Gigantopithecus was an early diverging pongine.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Gigantopithecus is a sister clade to orangutans (genus Pongo) with a common ancestor about 12–10 million years ago, implying that the divergence of Gigantipithecus from Pongo forms part of the Miocene radiation of great apes. Expand
High-quality MS/MS spectrum prediction for data-dependent and data-independent acquisition data analysis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that machine learning can predict peptide fragmentation patterns in mass spectrometers with accuracy within the uncertainty of measurement, and analysis of the models reveals that peptides fragmentation depends on long-range interactions within a peptide sequence. Expand
The evolutionary history of the human face
TLDR
The evolution of the human facial skeleton is evaluated in the context of its extinct hominin relatives, and the biomechanical, physiological and social influences on its development are considered. Expand

TLDR
This Perspective provides a best practice primer for researchers, reviewers and editors and presents a series of precautions and standards for ancient protein research that can be implemented at each stage of analysis, from sample selection to data interpretation. Expand
