Very excited about this preprint on the high-coverage HGDP genomes, which includes a large part of my PhD work in 's group. Here's a thread summarizing what we learned about archaic admixtures in using this large and diverse panel: 1/n
Another landmark for the ever evolving field of human genomics. 929 whole genome sequences covering 54 diverse human populations from around the world, all made freely available as a resource with no access or analysis restrictions. Many new insights here:
Shared ancestry through time between Neandertal and modern human genomes. The most eye-catching evidence of gene flow some 50,000-100,000 years ago that I know of to date. Fig. 6D in
this is big! YUGE!

The HGDP paper, Insights into human genetic variation and population history from 929 diverse genomes, by David Reich, , , et al. It's a beauty.
Evidence of a single Neanderthal but multiple Denisovan source populations contributing to present-day human populations
Great paper on sequencing the HGDP samples. Solid analyses and interesting insights on archaic admixture. This is also important here as we now finally have a large number (>130) of whole genomes of non-Jewish Israelis.
Many more insights in new preprint describing 929 genomes analysed by the 's Anders Bergström, Chris Tyler-Smith, , . Finalised during Anders' past year as a postdoc here at .
