Science is A nation of strong, squat people, with low foreheads, and a large, rounded brain case and a prominent wide-mouth. Such is necessary for the mysterious, missing oervolk of the denisovamensen like to have seen it. According to their DNA.

Although archaeologists have never found a skeleton of one of the denisovamens have been found, knew, Israeli researchers look at the turtles in the way of determining, through the reading of their DNA.

The denisovamens should be approximately one-half million years ago, and have been living in Asia long before modern humans appeared. But what they looked like, no one knows. Archaeologists have discovered a mysterious menssoort only one phalanx, which is to choose, and the teeth, and a jaw was found, with the bonus that it does in the DNA of man has been able to achieve.

the DNA that are bio-scientist Liran Carmel and colleagues at the Hebrew university of Jerusalem and now, a rough profile of the denisovamens have been writing in a journal < / i> Link. The team predicted how the skeleton, there are 32 points or less, must have a point of view – ranging from the subtle differences such as the thickness of their tooth enamel, to more obvious things such as the width of the rib-cage.

all in All, this results in a menssoort the one who is the most like a neanderthal: strong pound, with a flat forehead, a broad chest, wide hips, thick fingers. To him, you are better to look at especially striking is the fact that the denisovamens a rare head, which is much wider than that of modern humans.


The reconstruction is, of course, but it is an average, react to combat, and a DNA expert, Evelyn Moore, of the leiden university medical center, Leiden. “There will be differences between men and women, and in the course of time, they will be at a number of points have been changed.” Nevertheless, she said that she is a “very interesting” study. “The good thing is that they are in a very creative way to work it was going to be something to say about how that is denisovanen came out. In the absence of fossil evidence, they had to really pull out all the stops.”
