Recognition for Nicolas Zwyns being the archaeologist involved with a recent genome study of a 45,000 year old fossil

Nicolas Zwyns was involved with the sequencing of a modern human fossil femur found in 2008 on the banks of the river Irtysh near Ust'-Ishim in western Siberia. The fossil was dated at about 45,000 years old. Analyses revealed a level of Neanderthal ancestry similar to that found in present-day Eurasians.
