Multiple Denisovan-related ancestries in Papuans
(Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology) Researchers examined DNA fragments passed down from Neanderthals and Denisovans to modern people living in Island Southeast Asia and New Guinea and found: the ancestry of Papuans includes not just one but two distinct Denisovan lineages, which had been separated from each other for hundreds of thousands of years. One of those Denisovan lineages is so different from the other that they might even be considered an entirely new group of archaic hominins. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

New study shows how guinea pig fathers pass on adaptive responses to environmental changes
(Forschungsverbund Berlin) Adaptations to environmental change are the most important asset for the persistence of any plant or animal species. This is usually achieved through genetic mutation and selection, a slow process driven by chance. Faster and more targeted are epigenetic modifications. A new study carried out by scientists from the Leibniz-IZW in Germany shows for wild guinea pigs that epigenetic modifications specific to individual environmental factors are passed on to the next generation.
