On February 10 at 17:00 a lecture «Neanderthals, Denisovans and Cro-Magnons: genetic Santa Barbara» will be held at VyatSU (36 Moskovskaya st., auditorium 128).



Who are the people who stood at the origins of Homo sapiens? What happened to them in the process of biological evolution? What do they have to do with us living in the 21st century? Today, this urgent topic excites many scientists - from anthropologists, historians to geneticists, linguists and bioinformatics. Several tens of thousands of years ago, representatives of three branches of humanity lived in Eurasia: Cro-Magnons, Neanderthals and Denisovans. They have been meeting, starting families, and in the DNA of modern people there are traces of these close ties. About the genetic series of Santa Barbara will be discussed at the lecture.
