Mysterious 'ghost population' of ancient humans discovered in African DNA - Daily Sabah

Analysis - One of the more startling discoveries arising from genomic sequencing of ancient hominin DNA is the realisation that all humans outside Africa have traces of DNA in their genomes that do not belong to our own species.Analysis - One of the more startling discoveries arising from genomic sequencing of ancient hominin DNA is the realisation that all humans outside Africa have traces of DNA in their genomes that do not belong to our own species.

Africa: Early Humans in Africa May Have Interbred With a Mysterious, Extinct Species - New Research - allAfrica.com

A new study comparing the genomes of 405 West African people to Neanderthal and Denisovan sequences has revealed the “ghost” of a mysterious and previously unknown hominin that once lived alongside our ancestors.A new study comparing the genomes of 405 West African people to Neanderthal and Denisovan sequences has revealed the “ghost” of a mysterious and previously unknown hominin that once lived alongside our ancestors.

Ghost in the shell: Never-before-seen extinct species of human found lurking in genes of today's West Africans, study finds — RT World News

Researchers have concluded that this archaic population split an estimated million years ago from the lineage that led to modern humans, and is connected to neither the Neanderthal and Denisovan families whose DNA is carried in modern humans.Researchers have concluded that this archaic population split an estimated million years ago from the lineage that led to modern humans, and is connected to neither the Neanderthal and Denisovan families whose DNA is carried in modern humans.

Ghost population of humans found in DNA of West Africans, study says

“West Africans contain the DNA of a "ghost archaic population" that may have split as long as a million years ago from the lineage that led to modern humans, Neanderthals and Denisovans. Another vanished species of hominids turns out to be not wholly dead. https://t.co/RCNlIAdtoX”
