Interesting, but the lack of any Neanderthal DNA at all is suspect.. Judging
by our previous registered list Neanderthal, there may be a positive
correlation between percent
Neanderthal DNA and photographic skills. A brief look at recent developments
revealed that a previous postulate of loss of some Neanderthal DNA from the
genome due to negative selection bias was due to methodological issues.
There may be some enrichment of Neanderthal in East Asians but a recent article
cell more precisely defined the average Neanderthal DNA in Europeans at 1.7%.
The previous variation had been overestimated--sad for our registered
Neanderthal but probably good news for Chris.
Interestingly, there clearly is some Nean. DNA in Africans as well, which was
