After reading this article in the Sydney Morning Harold, I was fascinated by the idea that an ethnic culture could perhaps singularly among any other ethnic group carry a gene from a race of humans now long extinct.
It makes me wonder if other groups also carry genes from other extinct races…I’m sure a few people I know may carry Neanderthal. Then that makes me think that if the Tibetans were to die out, we’d lose this extraordinary gene. Perhaps Tibetans should be making more babies 🙂
The human race is more than the sum of its parts. There may be much treasure still buried within our genetic code as we continue to untangle it.
