According to anthropologists, the half-Neanderthal and semi-gyenesis was the little girl who lived about 50,000 years ago, whose remains were found in a Russian cave. The discovery was published on BBC News on Wednesday by a study published in the journal Nature.
The researchers found that the child had parents of two different groups of people, according to the DNA examination of the bones of the little girl: the mother was Neanderthal and the father was Kishizov.
“We have learned from previous studies that the Neanderthals and the Kenyisovians occasionally had their common children, but I did not think we would be lucky enough to find a child of the two groups,” said Vivian Slon, the Max Planck Evolutionary Anthropology Institute in Leipzig (MPI- EVA) researcher.
Nowadays, a small portion of non-African human DNA comes from Neanderthals. Some other non-African populations, depending on where they live, also have a portion of their DNA that comes from Asian people, so-called people from Kishizova.
The fact that genes are still living in new generations indicates that they have certainly had their common progeny.
For the time being, however, it is the only place where found the frowning evidence of the common descendants of the people of Kisszegova and Neanderthal, a Siberian cave in the Altaj Mountains.
Less than twenty non-Homo sapiens’s ancestry genomes have been sequenced so far. From this very small figure, we found only one person, half of whom had different felons, “Slon said.
According to research, the Neanderthals and the Kenyisovians were at the same time in Eurasia. Both groups lived in the region 40,000 years ago, Neanderthals in the West, and the Kenyisovians in the eastern part.
The Neanderthals wandered eastward to the Kenyisovians and the modern people.
“The Neanderthals and the Kenyisovians did not have too many opportunities to meet, but when this was done, they would often be mated, much more than we previously thought,” said Savante Paabo, MPI-EVA Director.
A fragment of her bone was discovered by Russian archeologists years ago in the Gyenyiszova cave. The genetic analysis of bone fragments was carried out in Leipzig.
“The bones are part of a long bone, we estimate that she was at least 13 years of age,” said Viola Bence, a paleoanthropologist at the University of Toronto.
Scientists have concluded that her mother genetically closer to those Neanderthals who lived in the western part of Europe than those Neanderthals who had previously lived in the Caves of Gyenyiszova.
This shows that Neanderthals migrated between Western and Eastern Europe and Asia for tens of thousands of years until they died.
From the genetic tests, it was also found that the father of Kishisova was at least one of the neanderthals of the Neanderthal on the family tree.
