Scientists reach the face of a girl of a human lineage extinct 50 thousand years ago

The British newspaper The Sun revealed that a group of scientists were able to design a stereoscopic profile that shows the features of the insofar strain, a strain known to be close to the features of the ancient man, which was characterized by great mystery.


Reshaping the face of an individual of a mysterious extinct strain of man
According to the British newspaper, the figure that reveals the features of this ancient safety, which includes the facial features of a young female of the Dinisofan dynasty, is based on remnants of the Siberian cave, and may help humanity learn more about its ancestors.

DNA from a fossil finger found inside a cave in the Altai Mountains of Siberia was used to build a rough picture of the shape of this strain.

The strain was discovered only in the last decade, and researchers agree that its last member died about 50,000 years ago.

The reconstruction of the girl's face carried out by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, was described as "exciting" and "extraordinary", as it shows that the Denisovans resemble neanderthals as expected.

But the members of this breed have wider heads, and their jaws are more prominent.



Who are the Dinisofan?
The British newspaper published some available information on the Dinisofan dynasty, such as:

·           · The Dinosovan is an extinct group of ancient man.
·           · Evidence of their presence was first found when finger bones were discovered in Denisova cave in Siberia in 2008.
·           · Since then, other remains, such as three large teeth and jawbones, have been found.
·           · Analysis of the remains indicates that the Neanderthals share the same neanderthal origin.
·           · They are believed to have lived around Siberia and Southeast Asia.
·           · Denisovan DNA was found in some humans, so they are believed to have been in a state of displeasure with the ancestors of modern man and lived among them.
·           · Disinovan is such a real mystery that scientists do not agree that they have already lived and gone extinct.
·           · Some scientists believe they were extinct 50,000 years ago, while some believe they may have mated with modern humans about 15,000 years ago.

Scientists have discovered the jawbones of the Dinisofan strain
The paper said the work would be exciting, because of the lack of information on Denisovans, even though they had lived for tens of thousands of years in Asia.

"We went through one of the most exciting moments a few weeks after our research paper was sent for peer review," says Learn Carmel, a researcher at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem team that reshaped the girl's face.

She added: «Scientists discovered the bones of Denisovan's jaw! We soon compared these bones to our prediction, and found it to be completely identical."

"Without even planning this, we gained independent certification of our ability to reconstruct complete anatomical features using the DNA we extracted from the mind of one finger."

Among the other qualities predicted by scholars about the Dinisofan was that they had long faces, large pelvic bones, and large jaws.

Genetic analysis of the discovered remains helped researchers identify these traits because certain genes determine what the skeleton will look like.

Scientists believe their research could be used to explain how the Denisovan survived the harsh cold in Siberia.

"There is still a long way to go to answer these questions, but our study sheds light on the distinctive qualities of modern man that distinguish us from other human groups, which are now extinct."

The research was published in the Scientific Journal of Cell.
