Denisovan gene helped Tibetans thrive at high altitude An unusual variant of a gene involved in regulating the body’s production of hemoglobin – the molecule that carries oxygen in the blood – became widespread in Tibetans after they moved onto the high-altitude plateau several thousand years ago. This variant allowed them to survive despite low oxygen levels at elevations of 15,000 feet or more, whereas most people develop thick blood at high altitudes, leading to cardiovascular problems.

Scientists say tooth is oldest human remains in Italy. The University of Ferrara said the tooth, which is that of a child about 5-7 years old, was found in 2014 and represents an exceptional discovery that sheds light on the variability of the Homo species during the Middle Pleistocene Ionian Stage, a period of geologic time between 781,000 to 126,000 years ago.
