HUMAN HISTORY SHORT VERSION

In the review co-authors Rasmus Nielsen and Eske Willerslev from CGG provide an overview of the most important insights into human evolutionary history based on DNA-sequencing.

In this review co-authors Rasmus Nielsen and Eske Willerslev from CGG provide an overview of the most important insights into human evolutionary history based on DNA-sequencing. From the origins in Africa and out-of-Africa to the meeting with Neanderthals, Denisovans, the peopling of Europe, Asia, Oceania and the Americas to human adaptation to new environments.

Using genomics some mainstream archaeological and anthropological theories have been supported while analysis has provided new insights where existing data were not sufficient.
