Scientists discovered DNA of an unknown group of anthropoids.
South Pacific islands are the most obscure and exceptional locations on our planet. Their uniqueness was confirmed by a newly conducted study.
As stated in the report from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Centre in Houston, on the South Pacific islands there were found hints of an earlier unidentified group of anthropoids in the DNA of the Melanesians. The Melanesians were a group that lived in the zone northeast of Australia that surrounds Papua New Guinea and the closets islands.
The investigation managed through computers applies that the unknown tribal anthropoid species located in Melanesian DNA is implausible to be Neanderthal or Denisovan, the two already acknowledged ancestors of the human being.
The two, already well known and established species were found a long time ago. The Neanderthal fossils were discovered in Europe and Asia. The Denisovan DNA comes from a finger bone and teeth in a Siberian cave, even though in small quantity, it’s still acclaimed and famous in the fossil documentation.
The new genetic recreation of the Melanesians has unveiled something different, something unknown and obsolete. It’s supposed that the new species is related with the Neanderthals.
The research Ryan Bohlender told Science News that they either miscalculated the relation between the species or they discovered a completely new population. One thing is sure; the history of humanity is much more complex than we think.
