the Denisovan story is a strange one - even if we don't know what they looked like, we have their complete genome and know how it relates to neanderthals and modern humans

and now there appears to be another type of human species involved, of which we know absolutely zilch apart from tantalising hints in the Denisovan genome
makes you wonder when or whether we'll find out who it belongs to

Mystery human species emerges from Denisovan genome
