Ozgur, after a pretty painful year of hard work, has now compiled a very nice set of derived Neanderthal haplotypes that were introgressed in Western Asia. It is a very nice extension of the excellent work, showing the local impact of introgression.  Here is the link for our paper in Genome Biology and Evolution – “Variation and functional impact of Neanderthal ancestry in Western Asia“. Press release by always impressive Charlotte Hsu is here.
