And according to the British newspaper “The Guardian” the tooth found in one of the caves in the small Asian country, known as the “Denisova Man” will help to learn more. Extinct species Belongs to the genus Homo.
The cave was first discovered in 2018, and later researchers discovered a human molar, believed to be the age of a female, aged 3 and 8 and 8 years.
And opportunity Scientists The Neanderthals’ cousin “Denisovans” lived in the warmer climates of Southeast Asia.
Earlier, scientists discovered in the area Siberia According to a study published in the journal Nature Communications, the Russian finger bone belongs to the “Denisova man”.
Scientists relied on fingernails and wisdom teeth found in Laos to extract the complete gene for “Denisovans”.
In 2019, researchers discovered the jawbone of a “Denisova man” in the Tibetan plateau, confirming that the species also lived in China.
Apart from these finite fossils, only a few traces of tenisovans remain, except for the genes present in the DNA of modern humans.
As this “mysterious” species bred with Homo, there are still remnants of “Denisovans” in today’s population of Southeast Asia.
Traces of this ancient man’s DNA are estimated to be present in 5 percent of the indigenous peoples of Australia and Papua New Guinea.
Scientists say there is no evidence that this ancient man lived in the frozen Himalayas or in areas outside the Tibetan Plateau, but the beginning of research in one of the Laos caves was a turning point.
