"The trait's presence in the fossil suggests both that it is older than previously understood and that some modern Asian groups obtained the trait through interbreeding with a sister group of Neanderthals, the Denisovans," study researcher Shara Bailey, a professor of anthropology at New York University, (http://www.nyu.edu/about/news-publications/news/2019/july/ancient-molar-points-to-interbreeding-between-archaic-humans-and.html) explained.
However, the dynamics of this process depend on the exact number and location of genes underlying species characteristics and mate preferences, the strength of natural selection acting on these genes, and the amount of interbreeding between species.
That is why instead of sitting around waiting for a mutation to happen, they acquired this gene through interbreeding.
Many researchers argue the interbreeding scenario is more likely, because it fits the genetic patterns seen in studies that compared genomes from many modern humans.
A molecular window into interbreeding between Neandertals and ancient humans suddenly flung open.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Scientists discovered long history of interbreeding among at least four different types of early humans living in Europe and Asia dating back 50,000 years ago.
Professor Cooper, Director of the University of Adelaide's Australian Centre for Ancient DNA, said that in mainland Asia, neither ancient human specimens, nor geographically isolated modern Indigenous populations have Denisovan DNA of any note, indicating that there has never been a genetic signal of Denisovan interbreeding in the area.
Scientists reckon there was interbreeding between the two species and maternal DNA was transferred from brown bears to polar bears.
The Barents Sea is itself under threat from climate change, petroleum exploration, heavy shipping traffic and lightly regulated cod farming (which threatens wild populations through interbreeding with escaped farm fish).
They begin interbreeding like fabled backwoods hillbillies.
Our timeline of existence overlapped with theirs, which might have led to interbreeding. This was confirmed in 2010 in a National Geographic (http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2010/05/100506-science-neanderthals-humans-mated-interbred-dna-gene/) report.
