Neanderthal Man: In Search of Lost Genomes

Svante Paabo

Basic Books


275 pages




Writing for general readers interested in science, Paabo recounts his 30-year effort to sequence the genome of Neanderthal Man and explains what he discovered about the hotly debated relationship between Neanderthals and the early humans who lived in the same regions for thousands of years. His topics include mummies and molecules, amplifying the past, dinosaurs in the lab, a Croatian connection, a new home, multi-regional controversies, starting the genome project, hard bones, mapping the genome, from bones to genome, gene flow, first insights, the replacement crowd, publishing the genome, and a Neanderthal relative.
