After many trials, they found that a model that included a second interbreeding, another “pulse” of Neanderthal genes into the Asian population, fit the existing data the best.
But the two-pulse hypothesis also poses a puzzle of its own.
In 2010, scientists made a startling discovery about our past: About 50,000 years ago, Neanderthals interbred with the ancestors of living Europeans and Asians.
Researchers also have found a peculiar pattern in non-Africans: People in China, Japan and other East Asian countries have about 20 percent more Neanderthal DNA than do Europeans. Akey, a geneticist at the University of Washington, and the graduate student Benjamin Vernot recently set out to test possible explanations for the comparative abundance of Neanderthal DNA in Asians.
In fact, you can now download two different versions of the app on Android.
There’s a free version, Thai Joop Free, as well as a premium version called Thai Joop .
The theory that made the most sense was that Asians inherited additional Neanderthal DNA at a later time. Kim approached the same genetic question, but from a different direction.
In this scenario, the ancestors of Asians and Europeans split, the early Asians migrated east, and there they had a second encounter with Neanderthals. They constructed a computer model of Europeans and Asians, simulating their reproduction and evolution over time.
While some of the debates have moved to discussions on the minute details of Diamond’s argument, the impetus that triggered so much blogger enthusiam was the question of whether the assumptions behind his argument are racist despite his public denunciation of racism.
Recently Korean girls are all the rage, and for good reason.
No doubt they have the best bodies in Asia, hands down.
Today, though, I found this article by Jared Diamond titled “The Japanese Roots” originally published in the June 1998 (vol.19) issue of (via cbuddha’s us tag for japanese anthropology). Now I am compelled to comment on this article, not because I study “Japan,” and not because I carry a Japanese passport, but because I now understand why my fellow bloggers felt so impassioned to critique Diamond.
In this article, Diamond explores the origin of the Japanese race.
