Neanderthal Genome Project

Read all about it here or here or here.

Svante Paabo, one of the participants, was the real-life inspiration for much of Mary Vaughan's work on Neanderthal DNA in my Hugo Award-winning novel Hominids and its sequels; the work I describe Mary as having done in recovering Neanderthal DNA at the Rheinisches Landesmuseum in Chapter 15 of Hominids was really done by Svante Paabo.
