Denisovan DNA is online

The genome of the third official (but extinct) species of modern humans has been published online in a public database and can be freely accessed by everyone at http://aws.amazon.com/datasets/2357. Now I’m sure I’ll be able to know whether some of my most remote ancestors also belonged to that species. When the results are in, I’ll let you know.
