via Africa is a Country. Do with this what you will . . . . .

From the latest issue of SCIENCE MAGAZINE: "an international team of researchers presents their first detailed analysis of the draft sequence of the Neanderthal genome, which now includes more than 3 billion nucleotides collected from the bones of three female Neanderthals who lived in Croatia more than 38,000 years ago. By comparing this composite Neanderthal genome with the complete genomes of five living humans from different parts of the world, the researchers found that both Europeans and Asians share 1% to 4% of their nuclear DNA with Neanderthals. But Africans do not.”
