The genes of extinct species, unidentified, were found in Melanesian DNA, the population is located in the South Pacific.
According to new research, this species did not belong to Neanderthal or denisovan, but could represent a third species, unidentified so far.
Ryan BOHLENDER, a geneticist at the University of Texas, said that "perhaps I have missed a species or omitted links between species." He and his team tried to find out the percentage of DNA specific hominids that people today still do have and the result was represented by discrepancies revealing that the pairing of our ancestors with Neanderthal and Denisovan there is In fact, the primary explanation. It is believed that, far from 10,000 years to 60,000 years ago, they migrated from Africa and had contacts with populations living in Eurasia and these contacts have left a footprint specified in our DNA that lasts until today, Europeans and Asians having choices Neanderthal genetic distinct.
Moreover, researchers discovered earlier this year that Europeans have inherited from Neanderthal genes that put them at the disposition emergence of diseases and increased risk of depression. The percentage of DNA that Europeans and Asians have inherited from them is 2.8%.
But when it comes to DNA inherited from denisovan, things get a bit more complicated, especially if the population of Melanesia, an area in the South Pacific that includes Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia, Papua Western and Maluku Islands. One of the researchers involved in the project said: "Europeans show no gene denisovan and population in China only a very small percentage, 0.1%. However, if Melanesian this percentage is 1.11%." After these investigations, those who started the study concluded that the three species would have much to do with the current population of the Melanesian.

Interaction with other species prehistoric ancestors may have been more complex than we had expected and even if there were no findings that show the existence of other species, that does not mean they did not exist.
