Subject: [DNA] 4 percent Neanderthal?
Date: Sat, 5 Feb 2011 14:20:49 -0700
My question, to come, is driven by having a link to article on neanderthal genes in modern man not functioning.
Which of the below is being suggested by some researchers:
A. 4 percent of modern humans show pieces of genetic material inherited from Neanderthals; or
B. The typical or average modern human (perhaps outside of sub-sahara Africa) shows 4 percent of his/her genetic material inherited from Neanderthals; or
C. Something else
Have the pieces of genetic material alleged to be inherited from Neanderthal been associated with any phenotype attributes? Or is it "junk" dna material, or control dna material?
