Neanderthal genome shows early human inbreeding and interbreeding

Scientists have been able to determine that everyone with blue eyes descended from one common ancestor.    The first blue eyes were due to a genetic mutation up to 10,000 years ago, before that everyone had brown eyes. The mutation affected the OCA2 gene which is involved in giving our eyes their pigment. "A genetic mutation affecting the OCA2 gene in our chromosomes resulted in the creation of a 'switch,' which literally 'turned off' the ability to produce brown eyes," said Hans Eiberg of…

Otzi the Iceman’s full nuclear genome sequence shows that he had Lyme disease. Otzi died 5300 years ago; his is the earliest known human case of Lyme. An earlier study sequenced his mitochondrial genome and found that he has no contemporary descendants. His ancestors in the K haplogroup migrated to Europe from the Middle East during the Neolithic. Their descendants are few in number (only 8% of Europeans belong to the K haplogroup) and concentrated in isolated areas like Sardinia and…

Five skulls were found that still exist in Ica, Peru, and Merida, Mexico. They have a brain cavity area ranging from 2200 CC to 3200 CC. Modern humans average 1450 CC  in size with the largest human skull to date at 1980 CC. All these skulls have Neanderthal (post-flood humans) characteristics. They are huge in size and come from an unknown species according to science.  In fact according to science they do not exist at all but for the fact that they are viewable today.

Austrian scientists have found that 19 Tyrolean men alive today are related to Oetzi the Iceman, whose 5,300-year-old frozen body was found in the Alps. Their relationship was established through DNA analysis by scientists from the Institute of Legal Medicine at Innsbruck Medical University. Oetzi's genome was published in February, indicating his probable eye colour and blood type [Credit: S. Marco/EURAC]

"Scientists crack the genetic code of a 50,000 year old girl from a fragment of bone - and shed new light on one of our earliest cousins [the Denisovans]" -- "A tiny fragment of finger bone has enabled scientists to map out the entire genetic code of the Denisovans, a little-known ancient cousin of modern humans. ... The existence of the Denisovans was only confirmed in 2010."
