Convergent Development: Neanderthal and woolly mammoths may share common genetic traits

A new study from Tel Aviv University suggests that the genetic profiles of two extinct mammals of African descent – woolly mammoths, elephant-like animals that evolved on the Arctic Peninsula of Eurasia about 600,000 years ago, and Neanderthals, highly skilled early humans, that evolved early Developed in Europe about 400,000 years ago – common molecular characteristics of adaptation to cold …

Studies of the Neanderthal gene could explain the shape of our skulls

For the first time, an interdisciplinary team of scientists has identified two genes that influence the skull shape of modern humans – and they are from Neanderthals. "Billions of people living today carry a small portion of the Neanderthal genes in their genome – a distant echo of mixing as our ancestors left Africa and encountered Neanderthals," said study author …
