Genome of a New Human Species Deciphered

Scientists from Russia, USA, Germany and Canada have finished deciphering nuclear genome of a mysterious hominin, which bone was found in Denisov cave by Russian archeologists.
      
      The 3-billion-letter genome helped understand that hominins DNA looked more like Neanderthal DNA, than Homo sapiens; however, it had diverged from Neanderthals about 640 thousand years ago.
      
      Interesting results emerged after comparing a hominins DNA to several modern human populations evidence of interspecies crossing has been detected. Melanesians, inhabiting islands, located north-eastwards from Australia, appeared to have up to 1/20 genetic material from Denisovans.
