Some time ago, some researchers have finally discovered the DNA which belonged to one category of hominids which were previously unknown and never unrevealed.
A lot of people in the world know that South Pacific’s islands are definitely the most unique and remote places on the planet Earth, but one new study has revealed just how authentic and unique these islands really are.
As one report which was from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston states, researchers discovered some traces belonging to a previously unrevealed and extinct species of hominid, in Melanesians’ DNA, which is one group that lives in the area which is northeast of the country of Australia, which encompasses Papua New Guinea and also the island around it.
According to an analysis done by computers, it was suggested that this unidentified and unknown ancient hominid species which were discovered in the DNA of the Melanesians, does not belong to the Denisovan or Neanderthal, which are two well-known antecedents of humanity to this particular point.
Moreover, some archaeologists have also discovered a lot of Neanderthal fossils at places in Asia and Europe, and even though the single DNA of the Denisovan comes from one finger bone, together with several teeth which were found in one Siberian cave, these two species are, in fact, very well represented and explained in the fossil record.
However, nowadays, living in this modern world, every single thing is possible.
According to the genetic modeling that the Melanesians had, it has been discovered that there was the chance of the existence of third and different human ancestors, which probably does not exist anymore, and is a distinct historical cousin of the well-known group, the Neanderthals.
According to the statements of one researcher, named Ryan Bohlender, nowadays we are definitely missing some kind of population, or we are also misunderstanding something when it comes to relationships. He also mentioned that the history of human beings is far more complicated and mysterious than we ever thought it could be.
