Check out the #bg2010 hash-tag on twitter. There’s a lot of interesting tidbits. Here are some tweets from the presentation on the Neandertal genome in relation to the Denisova hominin (a.k.a. “X-woman”):

lukejostins SP: The Denisova finger is from the Neanderthal line, but didn’t interbreed with humans, hence looking like an outgroup

dgmacarthur: SP claims that Neanderthals and Denisova archaics are more closely related than either are to humans; intriguing.

dgmacarthur: SP: next steps: generate 10-20X coverage of Neanderthal, sequence other archaic humans (e.g. Denisova).

I hope Dr. Daniel MacAthur and Luke Jostins will say more when they get back to Perfidious Albion.

    Razib, i can’t view individual posts or comments on my iPhone. maybe it’s just me but it seems like there’s a problem with the site. just thought i’d let you know. i can view the overall blog but can’t click anything and view it without it cycling from the mobile site to the regular and not getting to view anything

  2. tx dan. i’ll pass that issue along.
