Our DNA is Unique to Modern Humans (E)

According to the latest study published in the journal Science Advances, only 1.5 to 7% of the modern human genome is unique to our species. The researchers from the University of California used a genetic analysis technique called Ancestral Recombination Graph to arrive at this conclusion. The researchers used publicly available data of Modern Human, Neanderthal and Denisovan genomes and then sequenced these genomes themselves. Subsequently ancestral recombination graph was used to sketch out a genetic tree encompassing the three species.
