Archaic admixture in Africa?

Hey all,

      I liked this argumentative piece in the times that brings back some of the geneticists vs. paleoanthropologists disagreement we talked about earlier. Basically, Lachance and Tishkoff are arguing that there are signs of archaic human interbreeding with certain African populations but don't have a fully integrated fossil argument/record, only genetic analysis. Their full paper is here

See y'all Monday!
