DNA and Genes
Review We tested out the 23andMe DNA Test Kit, from receiving the test tube to the receipt of the full results — here’s what we found along the way
Scientists have just completed sequencing the entire genome of a species of archaic humans called Denisovans.
Today's humans carry the genes of an ancient, unknown ancestor, left there by hominin species intermingling perhaps a million years ago.
Genetic mutations from extinct human relatives called the Denisovans might have influenced modern human immune systems, researchers say.
Scientists have recreated the face of a Denisovan woman — an ancient human who went extinct tens of thousands of years ago — using a groundbreaking DNA analysis.
Scientists recruited 32 look-alike pairs and discovered that doppelgängers share more than just appearances.
