Caption: Neanderthal genetics. Technician prepares a sample of bone from a fossil of a Neanderthal human, Homo sapiens neanderthalis, for an analysis of its DNA genetic material. Neanderthals were early humans who lived in Europe and the Middle East from 100,000 to 30,000 years ago. Compared to modern humans, Neanderthals had a relatively large face with a sloping forehead, brow ridge and no chin. It has been suggested that Neanderthals were the ancestors of modern Europeans. Comparisons of DNA extracted from Neanderthal fossils with modern DNA have shown that this is unlikely. Photographed in Svante Paabo's laboratory at Munich University, Germany.
