    Mystery ancient human ancestor found in Australasian family tree

    link: http://www.newscientist.com/article/...n-family-tree/

    ..... analysed the genomes of living Indigenous Australians, Papuans, people from the Andaman Islands near India, and from mainland India, they found sections of DNA that did not match any previously identified hominin species. These DNA sequences are not present in the genomes of living Europeans or east Asians, suggesting that the ancestors of these people met and bred with a mystery hominin in south Asia or the Pacific region, who left their genetic legacy in the area’s present-day populations.
    looks like another ancestor group that led to certain modern groups in Australiasia etc.
