Saturday Video: DNA clues to our inner neanderthal

by Salman Hameed

Here is Saturday video on Sunday (time travel?). Svante Paabo is one of the leaders of DNA sequencing and what it tells us about lineages. The talk below is slightly dry, but it talks about evidence for the possible inter-mixing of humans and neanderthals. Yes, we can now trace hanky-panky behavior even if that happened over 40,000 years ago :)
