Neandertal Genome Sequenced!

This is about as cool as it gets:

In the 7 May 2010 issue of Science, Green et al.
report a draft sequence of the Neandertal genome composed of over 3
billion nucleotides from three individuals, and compare it with the
genomes of five modern humans. A companion paper by Burbano et al. describes a method for sequencing target regions of Neandertal DNA. A News Focus , podcast segment, and special online presentation
featuring video commentary, text, and a timeline of Neandertal-related
discoveries provide additional context for their findings.
