    Advanced DNA analysis of sediment from the 'Galería de las Estatuas' cave in Spain

    The Observer - Sun 16 May 2021

    Tiny traces of DNA in cave dust may unlock secret life of Neanderthals

    Advanced technique used to recover genetic material may help solve the mystery of early humans

    Scientists have pinpointed major changes in Europe’s Neanderthal populations – from traces of blood and excrement they left behind in a Spanish cave 100,000 years ago.

    The discovery is the first important demonstration of a powerful new technique that allows researchers to study DNA recovered from cave sediments.


    Edit: 'early man' changed to 'early humans' to correspond with change in newspaper/website subheading
