Only recently has it become possible to sequence Neanderthal genes. Scientists were able to obtain DNA from the remains of three Neanderthal women and sequence it. They then proceeded to compare the Neanderthal genome with five different modern people and have arrived at evidence of genetic influences on us.
We now have evidence for some gene flow from Neanderthals to all non-Africans. The most surprising part is that these same genes were not only found in a European, but also in a Han Chinese and a person from Papua, New Guinea.

Whether this season’s swine flu turns out to be deadly or mild, most experts agree that it’s only a matter of time before we’re hit by a truly devastating flu pandemic—one that might kill more people worldwide than have died of the plague and aids combined. In the U.S., the main lines of defense are pharmaceutical—vaccines and antiviral drugs to limit the spread of flu and prevent people from dying from it. Yet now some flu experts are challenging the medical orthodoxy and arguing that for those most in need of protection, flu shots and antiviral drugs may provide little to none. So where does that leave us if a bad pandemic strikes?
