Entire Genome of Extinct Denisovan Humans Decoded from Fossil

  According to clever  folks at the Max Planck Institute, they have been able to sequence the entire Denisova genome using 10 milligram of a finger bone fragment that was found in the Denisova-Cave in Southern Sibiria. The Denisovans are a representative of an Asian group of extinct humans related to Neanderthals. Here's the link : http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/02/120207133602.htm
