Highlight: a new sequencing method - amplifying only a single strand of DNA - provided 30+ times coverage resulting in an ancient Denisovian genome that is 99% complete, or comparable to a modern human genome, whereas only 1.3 times coverage was achieved previously.

The next step is to apply the same method on a Neanderthal genome.
